Sponsoring The BIBA Conference is a fantastic way to enhance your profile before, during and after the largest industry event in the UK. 

There are many packages available with different opportunities to maximise the exposure of your brand.

The Fringe Stage is a unique opportunity for exhibitors to give a 30 minute presentation or workshop on a subject of their choice direct to delegates.

It is set in the bustling and vibrant Exhibition Hall!

The Fringe agenda will run throughout both days and the platform will deliver excellent brand visibility for your session.

We have a selection of high-impact profiling opportunities available around the venue for you to take advantage of.

Ranging from aisle banners and carpet tiles in the exhibition hall, to billboard size blank canvases and digital ads, there’s something for every budget.

Outside the venue we have 4 designated spaces for you to organise and create an outdoor display.

The forecourt of Manchester Central is always bustling throughout the event and is a great first impression to delegates entering the show.

When registering for The BIBA Conference, attendees can choose to subscribe to exhibitor emails.

This means that we can send a HTML email on your behalf to all registered attendees who have chosen to subscribe.

With a great open rate, this gives you the perfect way to advertise your products and services directly to those attending before or after the event.

Quiet areas at Manchester Central during The BIBA Conference are hard to come by!

We have a limited number of private meeting rooms exhibitors can exclusively hire for the 2 days to conduct meetings in the privacy of your own room.

BIBA publishes a quarterly magazine and in May we have the special Conference edition. The magazine is handed out to delegates throughout the Conference and published digitally for BIBA members so is an unparalleled opportunity to advertise your exhibition stand.
