Sponsorship packages

Sponsorship packages are offered at a number of levels and the earlier you secure sponsorship, the more opportunities you have. We have a number of organisations that sponsor year after year — we don't even have to ask!

Submitting a sponsorship application early has many advantages. Although we strive to provide all of the benefits to each and every sponsor, some benefits, such as presenting an award; having your logo on the front cover of the Awards Brochure, Dinner Menu; branded coasters on the table or announcing the entertainment are limited.
