Research in practice

Glasgow, 9-11 April 2014

Sponsorship and promotional opportunities at the 2014 Annual Conference and Training Event, Institute for Archaeologists

The conference theme for 2014 is Research in practice, and over the three days will run a series of topical lectures, discussion seminars and CPD workshops. Session organisers, training providers and discussants – as well as the delegates themselves – represent the wide diversity of professionals working across the heritage sector. From local government curators and planning archaeologists, national heritage bodies, consultants and company directors and staff, independent specialists, academics, and industry partners, the IfA conference attracts a full professional spectrum.

Your sponsorship and promotion package

Our Principal sponsors this year are Historic Scotland, with Towergate Insurance. There are plenty more opportunities to support the conference, and get your message out to our delegates!

Conference attendance for all delegates will be subject to a delegate fee, and sponsorship is sought from external organisations to assist with various aspects of the conference. Your sponsorship adds value to the experience of our delegates via our display areas, conference programme, social and networking events, and in supporting our fund for conference bursaries aimed at students and practitioners who are currently unemployed. In return you gain direct access to our delegates via logo placement in our conference material and at the venue, via our display areas and networking events, and via advertising within our programme.

We have various sponsorship opportunities on offer, which you can tailor to your needs and desired impact. These extend from placing an advert in our conference programme, through to sponsoring our wine reception or being a named sponsor of the event. You can find an outline of all our opportunities below, along with the details.

We believe the conference to be an excellent opportunity for organisations to promote their work to a large sector audience. Sponsorship will enable IfA to run this event for all practitioners across the sector, and to ensure its accessibility to students and those on lower wages by offering support for travel or accommodation. We will include networking opportunities on the programme, which support our diverse range of discussion sessions and training workshops in offering a platform for continued debate and discussion.
