#WLEP16 IN FIGURES
The 2016 edition of the Annual Conference attracted over 400 attendees with over 84% rating the conference as ‘Good’ and ‘Excellent’. The audience comprised of local and regional business representatives (prominent sectors: Manufacturing, Construction, Creative, Cyber, Agri-food, Housing, Logistics, Retail, Tourism, Professional Services etc.), local and regional government bodies, education, training providers and not-for-profit organisations (download the 2016 attendee report HERE).     
 
BRAND PROMOTION
#WLEP17 provides the perfect opportunity to position your brand in front of our delegate base. Network with potential partners, inform present and meet prospective clients face to face. Throughout the course of the conference, those who secure a stand can use the space reserved for exhibition to provide live demonstrations of your services and products to over 400 potential partners and customers. 
 
NETWORKING
The conference is returning to the Chateau for the fourth consecutive year to celebrate its 7th Edition. The event has built a strong legacy in the regional business arena with attendance levels increasing year on year (16% increase in numbers registered from 2015 to 2016). The half-day conference concluding with networking lunch provides the perfect environment for you to connect with local established and start-up businesses, expanding companies, both local and central government representatives, third sector organisations and local business associations. 
 
WE ARE YOUR PARTNER
We commit to ensuring you are part of an excellent conference experience. We look forward to working together and offer all the stakeholders involved the most positive experience possible.
 
Details of sponsorship opportunities are listed below (exhibition opportunities will be published on the Exhibitor page from mid-August), however, because our approach is very much based on developing ‘bespoke packages’, we also invite you to contact us with any ideas of your own.
