You are invited to participate as a sponsor of the

2021 Australasian Plant Pathology
Society Biennial Conference
23 – 26 November 2021

 Stay Connected for Plant Health

Held over four days and complimented by participant access to content one-week prior and 3 months post conference proceedings, the 23rd Biennial Australasian Plant Pathology Society Conference is the premier event for the Australasian plant pathology community. For the first time ever, in 2021, the conference will be held online. It is anticipated that over 500 attendees will participate from across Australia, New Zealand into Asia.

Partnering with this event is the most significant opportunity you will have, to align your brand with delegates from the plant pathology community. Our online sponsorship program allows you to customise your presence for maximised benefits before, during, and after the Conference. Whether your goal is brand recognition, lead generation, or positioning yourself as a thought leader within the sector – our sponsorship offerings are designed to help your company achieve your objectives.

Why Sponsor?

  • Market to key influencers and decision-makers before, during, and after the event.
  • Stay top-of-mind for customers who make and influence decision making for the purchase of products and services.
  • Engage with attendees and ‘meet’ one-on-one throughout the conference.

 The Benefits of Sponsoring Online Events

  • Live and ongoing marketing reach/brand awareness – The content including your branding, will live on for 2 months post the actual conference with recordings made available through the online platform of the sessions and keynote presentations.
  • Generate leads and make connections – In a time where nearly all in-person events have been cancelled, it is more important than ever to promote your brand and not lose touch with the industry.
  • Cost-effective spend – One amount to highlight your presence across Australia, with the potential to reach markets further afield including New Zealand and Asia. (ie No travel, no accommodation and no meal allowance required)

Should you have any questions please contact us to discuss supporting the conference. We are happy to consider ideas and amendments to the packages below that maintain the spirit of supporting the meeting at the designated levels.
