Exclusive new WPC2012 sponsorship deals created

 WPC 2012 World potato congress
March 23, 2012
Exceptional demand for prime sponsorship opportunities at World Potato Congress 2012 (WPC2012) has led to a few very special exclusive packages being created for those who don’t want to miss this unique opportunity.
With almost 400 delegates already having booked their place at World Potato Congress 2012, with two months still to go, the event looks to be a big hit with the industry and sponsors alike as it offers an outstanding return on investment.
“A few very exclusive sponsorship opportunities at different levels have just become available in areas such as the gala dinner, the drinks reception and gala entertainment,” explains Potato Council director Rob Clayton.
“Each level of sponsorship has been designed to raise the sponsor’s profile in their target market, offer superb industry networking opportunities with current and potential customers in addition to helping businesses generate new business and on-site Congress sales leads.
“Furthermore we have divided sponsorship levels to suit any budget so that smaller companies can also benefit from this opportunity.”
The top levels can be broken down into gold, silver and bronze. With the lower tiers having already completely sold out, continued interest in sponsorship resulted in these new deals being conceived.
“Soaring interest in World Potato Congress 2012 is a result of securing important speakers who will leave delegates with important take-home messages,” says World Potato Congress president Allan Parker.
“With bookings steaming ahead we are looking forward to a highly successful, industry-wide event that offers something for everyone.”
