Conference organiser, Gerom Media, has announced that its annual series of Sponsorship Forums will take place during the month of April in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban respectively.
According to Gerrit Davids, MD of Gerom Media, “At these Forums, sponsors and rights holders will engage each other in a highly interactive environment, sharing best practice and strategies on how commercial partnerships could deliver real and sustainable returns on the sponsor’s investment and business objectives.
A dedicated Session will also unpack the role and value of sponsorship agencies and according to Davids, “The role of sponsorship agencies is still a key conversation in the bigger scheme of things, and a dedicated session will unpack the current trends in the sponsorship and marketing arena, as well as assessing the continued value of agencies managing the sponsorship between sponsors and rights holders”.
The “UnConference Session”, will be an open discussion giving delegates an opportunity to raise their concerns regarding the current challenges faced in a highly disrupted economy, in terms of forging sustainable partnerships with sponsors.
