Networking Lounge

$6,930 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 $290 incl. GST per square metre (subject to availability), and additional registrations can be purchased at the exhibitor rate.

Networking lounges will be strategically positioned near high traffic areas like coffee stations, charging stations, water dispensers, etc.

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

All lounge designs and plans need to be submitted to the conference organiser for approval no later than [date].

Seating is a key part of a successful networking space, so a condition of your lounge sponsorship is that the lounge must include seating options for at least one person per two square metres.

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.
