Sponsorship Opportunities


Why Sponsor?

The Automotive Surfaces Conference offers sponsors an unrivalled opportunity to be positioned as thought leaders, as we bring together inspiring speakers covering the main issues and the hottest topics facing our industry.

Companies do not have many opportunities to establish trust and build rapport with their customers and potential prospects, so getting involved as a sponsor with your company name at the forefront of this important industry will accelerate this process.

Sponsoring enables your company name to be included in a highly targeted marketing campaign, which will give you prominent exposure and acknowledgement before, during and after the conference. This will give you maximum visibility, stand out from your competitors and gives you the opportunity to get your message in front of senior level decision makers within the auto surfaces market.
