MENU > Sponsorship


Various types of commercially viable sponsorship opportunities are available to sponsors for SAF Expo 2014:

1.  Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsorship.           

2.  Name Branding of functions.

3.  Sponsorship of a variety of specific items.

The following sponsorship packages provide a high degree of flexibility, combining a number of traditional branding elements with added-value opportunities for addressing the conference attendees and communicating a corporate message. Naturally P.R. releases and press coverage around the conference will add further to the value of the package. It is difficult to put a monetary value to such coverage in advance but in the past the event has always been popular with the trade journals and specialised press.


As a Gold, Silver or Bronze Sponsor of SAF Expo 2014 your company will be clearly identified as one of most important contributors through visual branding and clear identification in the promotional material and documentation. Your logo will be significantly prominent at the event.

The gold, silver or bronze sponsorship give your company substantial direct tangible benefits in terms of free tickets to the workshop, free display space and all the added prestige and exposure of being recognised as a major sponsor, plus, the opportunity to further enhance your sponsorship by the distribution of appropriate promotional items to the delegates.  The bronze category offers a more affordable opportunity for companies to gain exposure to the delegates and to be seen supporting SAF Expo 2014 without having to staff an exhibition stand.
