Become a sponsor or exhibitor

Last updated:

Our exhibitors and sponsors are critical to the success of the IB Global Conference. By sponsoring the conference, you are able to maximize the visibility of your brand and build name recognition among participants. The upcoming IB Global Conference in San Diego, CA offers four sponsorship levels to meet the needs of your organization.

In 2018 there will be three IB Global Conferences worldwide with the addition of the IB Heads World Conference: the Asia Pacific (AP) and Heads World conferences are in Singapore in March 2018; this conference, in San Diego, USA, in July 2018; and the Africa, Europe, Middle East (AEM) conference in Vienna, Austria in October 2018.

To register as a sponsor please contact Leonor Chiarella in Outreach Services by email or (301) 202-3153.

We've partnered with Cvent to make it easier for our valued exhibitors to track leads generated at the IB Global Conference. With the easy-to-use handheld LeadCapture device, you can effortlessly track the impact of your attendance at the conference and export your data securely, while focusing on making those all-important connections.

Exhibitors can use the LeadCapture tool with their own device from US$329, or rent devices from US$379 (when ordering before 28 June 2018).
