Networking Lounge

$6,600 inclusive of goods and services tax (GST)

These networking spaces within the Exhibition Hall allow attendees to network, enjoy food and beverage during breaks, and conduct meetings in a relaxed setting.

The Networking Lounge sponsor will enjoy high brand visibility, and will have the opportunity to fully design and activate the space.

The networking lounge package is based on a minimum of 24 square metres, and includes one full in-person registration. Additional space can be purchased at $220 per square metre (subject to availability), and additional registrations can be purchased at the exhibitor rate.

The space can also be combined with other sponsorship packages. Why not combine the combine the ‘coffee cart’ and networking lounge packages into one? Or include a mobile charging station within the space?

All custom elements of the lounge design (including furniture and activations) will require full approval by the conference organiser, and must not conflict with other sponsors’ events or entitlements.

It is important to note that seating is a key part of a successful networking event, so we request that the lounge include seating options for at least 12 to 16 people per 24 sqm.

The table below details the basic inclusions of this package, but we will be eager to work with you to ensure you make the most of this unique opportunity.
