Sponsor Benefits

Influence People specialises in bringing together social media and marketing experts for high value conferences and workshops, both in the UK, Europe and the USA.

Our events offer unrivalled opportunities for sponsors: from promotion on the event website - including video and blog interviews - to inclusion in on-the-day materials, having an Exhibition Stand, providing a live product demo or taking part in a panel discussion.

Our events always generate a large amount of online buzz and networking. As a result, our sponsors benefit from extensive exposure via our networks on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, as well as coverage on our popular social media marketing blog and social media monitoring blog.

Sponsor Packages

We typically offer three levels of sponsorship:

1. Lead Sponsor – Effectively a co-host for the event
2. Sponsor – Lots of promotion, plus an active role in the event
3. Exhibitor – An exhibition stand at the event, plus free tickets
