Exhibition and Sponsorship Opportunities


After the success of ucisa DCG Spotlight 5, we are delighted to announce the Digital Capabilities Group (DCG) will be collaborating with the Digital Education Group (DEG) again to organise this year’s event. It will take place on 3 – 4 June at the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre, just a few steps from New Street Station, in Birmingham. 

The event will be attended by approx. 80 - 100 delegates and will include those involved in supporting and promoting digital skills development, such as IT trainers, learning technologists, library and IT staff and educational developers.

As in previous years we hope to complement the programme with Partner Showcases - opportunities for delegates, with exhibitors, to share their experience and success in working together to deliver new value to their organisations.

If this is of interest, please see the options below:

Primary sponsorship package:                                               £2,750 + VAT
(inc keynote presentation, table top stand space, 2 day passes per day (including lunch), logo in conference app and website)

Business Showcase package:                                                 £1,750 + VAT

Exhibition package:                                                                  £1,250 + VAT
(inc table top stand space, 2 day passes per day (including lunch))

Other additional sponsorship opportunities:

Drinks reception      £1,000 + VAT
Conference dinner   £3,000 + VAT

NB We will require you to submit a ~200 word proposal for both the Primary keynote and Business Showcases packages (including details of your presenters) for consideration by the Conference Committee.

For the presentation proposals, wherever possible, demonstrate where you have partnered with a HE/FE institution, highlighting how you were able to meet the requirements, address challenges (e.g. peak loads during specific times of the year/activities) and demonstrate benefits realised.
The content should not be a sales pitch. Rather explain a general problem or challenge facing the sector, talk about what you have learned and finish with a few slides on how your solution can help. Presenting in partnership with an academic site as a case study with the Full member leading the presentation, is our preference.

If you are interested in taking up a stand in the conference exhibition or would like to propose a presentation please get in touch (events@ucisa.ac.uk).

We look forward to seeing you there!
