Sponsorship Opportunities - 2020 to 2021

In conjunction, we’re excited to offer our sponsors a rare opportunity for doubled exposure in sponsorship. If you or your organisation want to hit the ground running in 2021, we invite you to check out our sponsorship opportunity – open now ahead of our 2021 conference, with the bonus BidX 2020 virtual conference added in.

About the Opportunity

Your chance to reach over 200 proposal professionals
Australia’s only bid and proposal conference, run by bid professionals, for bid professionals. Align yourself with the pre-eminent proposal management industry body.

Incredible value for early sponsors
By sponsoring early, you benefit from 10 months of promotion and exposure on conference communications collateral, EDMs, LinkedIn posts and our registration website; that’s an additional six months of exposure time. The earlier you register, the higher your return on investment.

Twice the exposure
Early sponsors get twice the value, as you will be aligned with our major conference in March 2021 and our BidX Virtual Conference in August 2020

2019 Conference: That's a wrap!

The third APMP ANZ conference ‘make an impact’ was our most successful conference to date, with 170 delegates, globally recognised speakers and a charged atmosphere as people connected with like-minded industry colleagues. Keynotes Mike Parkinson and Tom Sant shared on the importance of providing ‘at a glance’, quantified information so here is a summary of the conference in numbers.

Personal highlights included rethinking value propositions with Tom Sant, refocussing on priorities to beat burnout with Kat Barter and Kelly Richmond’s use of Mr Men and Little Miss characters to explain challenging bid team behaviours. Another highlight was  our inaugural APMP game show hosted by APMP Global CEO Rick Harris: watch out for its appearance at next year’s US conference.

What stood out overall though was ‘the vibe’ as referenced in the great Australian film The Castle. The conference rooms buzzed with excitement. Each delegate seemed genuinely excited to be there and conversations centred on new ideas as well as new friendships formed. This continued at our gala event, where delegates took photos with scuba divers and endured several fish puns from myself and Vice-Chair Felix Becker, our MC extraordinaire. 

Thanks again to our major sponsors Shipley and BidWrite, other sponsors and supporters and my fellow organising committee members. We look forward to doing it all again in Sydney on 26 and 27 August 2020. 

An independent survey is being conducted on the conference, to help us measure the impact it had for delegates and inform future planning. I would also welcome feedback on this years’ conference and ideas on how APMP ANZ can provide more value to members as we move into planning for next year.
