Sponsorship Opportunities and Sponsors



The ‘UK Conference and Meeting Survey’ (UKCAMS) provides crucial market intelligence on the UK meetings and conference sector, covering volume and value and key trends data from a supply-side or venue perspective. The research has been undertaken annually since 1993 (using several different titles/brands in that period), and has established a high profile for the integrity and consistency of its findings. Its findings are used by the Business Visits and Events Partnership (BVEP) when calculating the overall value of the events sector in the UK.


The ‘UK Conference and Meeting Survey’ is promoted very widely among conference and meeting venues across the UK and there is an opportunity for your brand to be associated with this vital research as a sponsoring organisation. Importantly, complimentary copies of the published report will be sent to approximately 250 UK-based professional conference organisers and event management agencies, comprising all of the major PCO/event agency players, giving sponsors highly relevant exposure to a key group of potential clients. Copies of the report will also be sold across the conference and meetings industry.


Sponsorship of the UKCAMS 2019 research has now been finalised. For information about sponsoring the 2020 research, please contact Tony Rogers (tony@tony-rogers.com)
