BERA Conference 2016

12 September 2016 to 15 September 2016Leeds

Why support BERA?

The BERA conference is the largest conference in the UK to focus on educational research and one of the largest social sciences conferences of its kind. Supporting BERA means that you will be able to interact with up to 1,000 delegates at this prestigious gathering. Our delegates represent a wide range of academics, policy makers and practitioners all engaged, or with a strong interest in educational research.

Partnership is at the heart of this event

Our sponsorship packages have been carefully shaped to meet your needs and we are open to ideas that would give added value to you and our delegates.

Involvement in BERA is all about building brand awareness

The exhibition hall is positioned to capture maximum customer engagement during formal breaks and between sessions. There are a range of opportunities to suit every budget and major sponsors will benefit from enhanced brand exposure in web and printed collateral; before, during and after the event.

Meet new contacts and strengthen key relationships

Maximising networking opportunities for our delegates is an important priority. We work hard to provide places for formal and informal networking. Dedicated meeting spaces include an integrated exhibition hall where all refreshments will be served.


Exhibition Package:

Exhibition units are sold by the table (6’) and the minimum unit is 1 table.
Each exhibition unit includes:

  • 1 table and 2 chairs
  • Tea/Coffee for 2 exhibition staff at the designated times
  • Logo and 100 word entry and company contact details in the final programme/mobile app
  • Logo with web link on the conference webpage
  • One set of delegate information per company

Advertising in the programme:

Our conference programme is provided to all delegates and contains details of the agenda and parallel sessions. It is used throughout the conference as a point of reference and advertising here guarantees visibility throughout BERA.

  • Colour inside programme

Delegate bag Inserts:

One A5/A4 promotional leaflet or small brochure can be inserted into each delegate bag. All delegates will receive the inserts in their delegate bags on arrival at the conference.

Website advertising:

This would allow you to have a direct link from the conference website to your company’s home page (upon signing the contract until the end of the conference).

Badge lanyards:

Have your company logo printed on the delegate badge lanyards (neck ribbons) which all delegates receive on arrival at the registration desk and wear throughout the conference. Alongside BERA, you will also be acknowledged as the sponsor in the conference programme and on the conference website.

Conference bags:

Quality conference bags specifically designed for this event will be distributed to all delegates bearing your company name with a one-colour logo alongside the BERA conference logo (full colour negotiable). Delegate bags will be used long after the conference itself, so sponsoring bags represents a very sound ‘value for money’ advertising opportunity. You will also be acknowledged as the sponsor in the conference programme and on the conference website.

  • Welcome Drinks Reception sponsor
