Become a Sponsor!

Following the success of the nine previous Social Connections meetings, we are pleased to announce our next event will be:

Social Connections 10 – Toronto

Once again, the program will run over 2 days with a packed agenda of sessions, leading speakers from IBM/partners/customers, plus opportunities to network, and some very special guests.

In addition, we will be arranging an exclusive gala dinner reception for all attendees at a nearby location and a VIP (speakers and sponsors) reception on Sunday evening.

All sponsors will be invited to include printed materials (A4 or A5, up to 4 sheets) in the attendee packs.

Your package can be confirmed by submission of purchase order (or formal confirmation by email) and immediate electronic payment of 50% of the sponsorship cost.

Platinum, Gold and evening event sponsors are entitled to a reserved session on the event agenda, with priority given when scheduling to aid good attendance. As with all Social Connections sessions, the topic must be informative and educational rather than a sales pitch for your product or service – this standard will be enforced at the event. However, it is anticipated and accepted that you will introduce yourself and your company and that you will suggest that attendees follow up with you at your pedestal after the sessions.

* Any late payments will be charged a 5% handling fee.
