Early Childhood Australia (ECA) offers sponsors the opportunity to promote their business to a large national audience.

Sponsorship will give your products and services high-level exposure across the early childhood education and care sector and help you demonstrate your commitment and support for service providers and educators.

A range of promotional opportunities is available, including publication of branding in printed conference materials and on the ECA website, as well as placement at the 2022 ECA National Conference venue.

Benefits of sponsorship

ECA has designed the sponsorship packages to maximise visibility and impact, ensuring your investment is worthwhile. Sponsorship delivers many direct and indirect benefits for your business or organisation. These include:

  • promotion and brand exposure through extensive event promotion for up to nine months before the conference
  • 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 ECA and a highly respected event in the early childhood education and care sector
  • increased brand and product awareness through:
    • clever use of your exhibition booth (available with several packages)
    • the opportunity to chair a concurrent session (available with 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
  • the opportunity to stand out from your competitors by taking up one of the exclusive sponsorship options
  • complimentary conference registrations and tickets for your staff—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.

ECA strives to ensure that all sponsors receive appropriate benefits for their support of the conference. Available options for prospective sponsors are specified in the next section.
