Early Childhood Australia National Conference 2016


Sponsorship of the Early Childhood Conference is a great way to promote your organisation/business to the early childhood sector. Early Childhood Australia will ensure that your investment is worthwhile with many direct and indirect benefits for your business or organisation.

Benefits include:

  • exposure of your brand through extensive event promotion over 12 months leading up to the event
  • the opportunity to engage and communicate with decision makers in the early childhood sector (conference delegates include CEOs, Senior Managers and Senior Practitioners)
  • brand association—you will be associated with a well renowned event in the early childhood education and care sector and with ECA
  • brand and product awareness through:
    • clever use of your exhibition booth (included in several packages)
    • naming rights of certain event aspects (included in some packages)
    • opportunities to test or showcase a new or existing product and communicate firsthand with your audience through exhibitions.
  • trialling or developing marketing and sales activities
  • differentiating from your competitors by taking up one of the exclusive sponsorship options
  • complimentary registrations and tickets enable your own staff to participate in the conference—a valuable professional development opportunity for anyone working in the early childhood sector
  • networking opportunities with leaders in the sector, keynote speakers, presenters and other sponsors.
