Opportunities now available to support annual CIOB heritage sector event.

One of the key dates in the CIOB Events Calendar is the annual CIOB Conservation Conference. Each year for more than 15 years the conference has addressed key topics affecting the heritage sector for those that have an interest in and are working in this area. 

This year’s event takes place for the first time at the beautiful Grade II-listed One Moorgate Place, in the heart of the City of London, on 25 April. This year’s theme is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It aims to share knowledge to provide valuable awareness and the tools to help generate efficiencies in such difficult ‘climates’ and times.

The conference aims to appeal to and benefit a wide audience. This ranges from homeowners to anyone involved with historic or traditional buildings – including contractors, craftspeople and heritage consultants – within the UK or wider afield.

We have drawn on renowned speakers from the UK and Europe to bring together examples that share experiences with different types of historic buildings and structures. This will enable delegates to make informed decisions in workplaces and homes to help tackle the crisis.

Through a variety of talks, discussion panels and case study presentations there is plenty of opportunity for delegates in the audience to participate in discussions and ask questions. Conference refreshments are available in the exhibitor hall, with the opportunity to network and share thoughts and ideas.

Support options

If your organisation works in the heritage sector, perhaps carrying out work on historic buildings or supplying specialist products for conservation or restoration, you may wish to bring your services to the notice of key stakeholders. Perhaps by presenting a sponsor case study or exhibiting at the conference. Sponsoring one of CIOB’s heritage activities is a perfect way to raise the profile of your organisation – putting it at the heart of conversation and demonstrating an alignment with CIOB values.

You may wish to promote your services in one of the following ways:

  • Gold sponsors enjoy a plenary presentation as part of the main conference agenda. Delegates particularly enjoy case studies that bring the topic to life, or a more detailed technical piece might inspire the audience with new ways of working. Speakers are also invited to participate in a live discussion panel. The package includes an opportunity to exhibit in a prime location, as well as five-day delegate passes, for £7,500 + VAT.
  • A silver sponsor has a place on the conference discussion panel, to debate, share ideas and views on issues that are important to the heritage sector. Other benefits include branding across the event and two free delegate passes, included in the cost of £3,500 + VAT. 
  • There are also limited spaces to exhibit at the conference, designed for companies whose products and services are relevant to this audience. This bronze sponsorship at £1,000 + VAT gives the opportunity to showcase with a tabletop exhibition stand, along with two free delegate places.
