NEW FOR 2019: Lightning Talks £150

Sponsors are invited to add a lightning talk to their package, which will provide a five minute presentation slot to the conference plenary to talk about your product or solution. We ask that the five minute presentation be engaging and focused on solutions that arts librarians require. You will have access to Power Point for the purpose of the lightning talk.

NEW FOR 2019: Co-Presented Workshop £300

This year we are offering sponsors to present workshops with arts libraries partners. If you have worked in partnership with one of your customers and have a case study you would like to co-present with them, that can be used as a workshop foundation in which delegates can experience your product or solution in a practical setting, then this could be a good platform for sharing. Workshops are 45 minutes long and need to be engaging and interactive. They need to include details of the partnership case study and some background as to the implementation of your product or solution with the partner institution. Delegates will be particularly interested to hear about the practical application of your product/solution in the arts library setting. Please contact us if you are interested in discussing this option or if you might be interested but do not have a library partner in mind. The cost for this workshop will include the day delegate rate for the presenting partner.
