Who comes to an Ai Event?

Ai Events focus very much on content. We have industry practitioners as speakers sharing their insights into the key issues of the day. We don’t sell speaking slots, which means our presentations are not sales pitches thus attracting delegates who want to keep up-to-date with innovations and best practices. Most airline, hotel and travel industry delegates are senior decision makers. From SVP, VP and Director level, our delegates are predominately the people doing the job and making purchasing decisions.  

For more in-depth sponsorship information, relating to our different events, or the make up of our delegates, please ask for our Media Pack.

What sponsorships items are available?

We work with our sponsors to customise their sponsorship package to their corporate objectives and budget.  Our sponsorship items start from US$999 and can be tailored to your exact requirement.

Some of the options available include:

► Exhibition space - great brand presence and your chance to speak with delegates during breaks & lunches
► Brand awareness at the event with sponsorship of coffee breaks, networking receptions. We aim to get your brand out there in front of your target audience
► Establishing your brand as an industry thought leader via white papers or other specialist content on the Ai website and promotion of your messages on the relevant event websites
