Why not share sponsorship between two sponsors, allowing two 5 minute speaking slots, which would add interest to the event, as well as reducing the cost.

Just £99 each, would offer two sponsors the chance to address over 70 members, display their banner and have their logo on all event correspondence, attendee list etc.

Please get in touch for availability.
