Sponsorship opportunities

As an event sponsor, you will have the opportunity to lead a technical session, deliver a keynote presentation and oversee a roundtable discussion. This will mean you can share your experiences and expertise with the region’s senior representative of the major project managers and transport operators. You can secure your position as a respected expert in the region, demonstrate the benefits of your solutions and ultimately secure new business.

As a sponsor you will also have the opportunity to deliver detailed technical workshop, to allow potential customers to understand how you can help them overcome the challenges they face. You will also have excellent branding opportunities across the event, with onsite banners and website promotion in the months leading up to the conference.

This is your chance to inform the industry in Latin America about the benefits your solutions and your expertise can provide.
