Reasons to sponsor

A marketplace to showcase your business, products and services

Different businesses need different ways to showcase themselves to their audiences.

The flagship Towards Wellbeing conference provides a flexible space to deliver innovative communications, and the theme provides the opportunity to innovate and show products and services from a different lens.

Through the rest of 2019, there are opportunities at, for example, topic specific seminars, political debates, research, reports and the Navigating Regulation Advice Summits.

Towards Wellbeing Conference

Providing leading edge, global and market insights, the conference programme delivers a combination of high
profile and quality keynote speakers and presenters.

With plenary and specialist workstream sessions, it give delegates the opportunity to hear first-hand from
experts, gaining access to real-time political insights and the latest thinking on global challenges.

The programme combines professional and personal development, providing tangible value for delegates.

Annual Awards Programme

We are delighted to present the industry awards at a gala dinner on the first night of the conference. The awards showcase excellence and industry best practice, the movers and shakers and the rising stars. The Gala Dinner and Awards provide an opportunity for both brand promotion and for sharing knowledge among peers.


Nationwide Coverage

We also promote our activities through national and trade media. In 2018 our events and activities featured on TV, Radio, National and trade media, with growing engagement on social media which we will continue to build in 2019.

Access to a network of the who’s who in Financial Services

We reach thousands of people in the financial services sector, and are expecting around 1000 delegates at the Navigating Regulation Advice Summits, 500 delegates at the 2019 conference and many more through media, our key publications and newsletters.

We reach a diverse group of product manufacturers, distributors and the suppliers who support the financial
services sector as well as politicians and regulators.

Not only will sponsors get the opportunity to be face-to-face with the community, through events such as conference, there is also the opportunity through other FSC channels to showcase your business.

Conference Exhibition Spaces and Navigating Regulation Marketplace

This year’s theme of Wellbeing means that sponsors don’t need to stick to the traditional exhibition and
include innovation and elements of wellbeing to their space. Think healthy eating, fitness, health and social

You needs are personal to your business, so our events team are happy to develop options with you, work with you to drive your brand at the conference and bring your space to life.

Sponsorship Opportunities

There are a range of opportunities, from conference packages that offer promotional activity ahead of the event as well as during, including delegate passes and opportunities to prime branding and positioning.

We can also create bespoke packages, not only at the conference but for other event series, research and activities we undertake through the year, as well as great value Pick and Mix opportunities that start from as little as $3,000.
