Sponsorship and exhibition

There are some sponsorship and exhibition packages available to help you showcase your organisation to future Earth scientists. Whether you are looking to recruit graduates or simply wish to raise awareness about your industry, this is a great opportunity to meet prospective geoscientists.


Become a sponsor and you will receive due acknowledgement, with your company logo displayed on prominent promotional event material. This will be seen by thousands of Earth science undergraduate and postgraduate students in the UK during the period leading up to the events, so the earlier you book, the more publicity you'll receive!

You will also have an opportunity to include a company profile in the student handbook, which will be seen by approximately 350 students on the day. Additionally, you will be allocated an exhibition space in a prime location within the main exhibition hall on the day, so that you can meet face-to-face with delegates.


There are also exhibition-only packages available. These include:

  • A 2-metre exhibition space with one 6-foot trestle table, two chairs and access to power
  • Refreshments and lunch (two lunches per stand - additional lunches can be purchased)
  • Space for pop-up stands and banners
