New Sponsorship Opportunities for 2020

From traditional sponsorships, such as signage, to more unusual packages, such as a run through the zoo (yes, really!), we have a range of sponsorship opportunities to suit every brand personality.

We’re delighted that all of last year’s sponsors saw great value in their involvement and have confirmed again for 2020. So, although this means items such as delegate bags, water bottles, lanyards, delegate badges, lectern branding and the all-important WiFi password have already sold, don’t worry, we have new, innovative and fun opportunities on offer.

“Investing in an EphMRA sponsorship is a great tactic I have used for many years now, for visibility and reinforcement of our brand. Our participation in EphMRA allows us to both share our own expertise but also exposes us to new insights and connections. I’ve always greatly appreciated active participation in EphMRA events – a chance to align with long-standing friends and establish new acquaintances, alike!”

Jessica Gates, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing & Communications, Custom Healthcare, Ipsos (Sponsor of delegate lanyards)

Sponsorship: What’s Available

In case you haven’t heard, our 2020 Conference will be at the inimitable Flanders Meeting and Convention Center (FMCC) in Antwerp, which is also known as ‘A Room with a Zoo’. This unique venue has inspired us to offer some new sponsorship opportunities to increase your brand visibility and connect with delegates on a whole new level.

How about:

  • A sponsored early morning run/walk through the zoo
  • Conference signage
  • Badge printing kiosk signage
  • A sponsored premium Belgian beer bar at the Welcome Drinks Reception
  • Branded door panels on the front of the FMCC
  • Branded polo shirts for conference hosts
  • Branded A5 notepad in delegate bags

We’re particularly loving the morning run and Belgian beer bar sponsor packages – what a fun way to participate in the Conference, create a talking point and get your brand noticed.

Why Sponsor EphMRA Conference

If you’re new to the Conference or haven’t sponsored an event before, here are four smart reasons to add it to your marketing strategy.

1. Brand Awareness

Hundreds of senior-level delegates from the healthcare industry across the world attend the Conference – and many more see Conference communications such as our emails, social media and Post Conference News, as well as the Conference website. Your brand will be highly visible to these influential opinion-leaders and decision-makers.

2. Industry Goodwill

When your brand is associated with a high-profile event, people form positive opinions about your business. Sponsoring at the Conference shows that your company is reliable, reputable and interested in supporting the industry – and people respond well to that.

3. Business Relationships

To get maximum value from attending the EphMRA Conference, it makes sense to really get involved. Taking a quirky sponsorship package, such as the morning run/walk through the zoo is a fantastic conversation-starter and an interesting topic to discuss when networking.

4. Stand Out from the Competition

In a crowded marketplace, you need to do something different to stand out and get noticed. A sponsorship package that people can see, touch and experience gives a lasting impression that helps to keep your business at the forefront of their minds. You also demonstrate a commitment to the healthcare industry and to supporting your membership association, EphMRA.

How to Get Involved

Full details, pricing and benefits of our sponsor packages can be found in our Sponsorship Opportunities brochure, which you can find on the conference website - To enquire or book your sponsorship, please contact Caroline Snowdon, Events Manager at [email protected]

Don’t delay, we expect these opportunities to sell quickly!

We’d like to say a huge thank you to sponsors who have already signed up – we are grateful for your support.
