Being a sponsor/partner at Congress on 23 June, London
- I've posted here as it may need to become a vote?
Co-op Congress the national conference for the co-op movement is in London on Sat 23 June and is attended by around 400 people from CEO's and Chairs of the larger co-ops, down the the smaller community and worker co-ops.
I would like to theme part of the conference around tech/platform co-ops as there is a lot going on and I want to reach out to this new audience. Having one of the workshop rooms branded as "in partnership with Co-tech" and other visibility for your co-ops would be mutually beneficial I think particuarly considering some of the conversation I took part in at your recent conference.
I'm not looking for direct sponsorship cash, but it would be good in return for getting your brand/sponsorship of this room. Cotech members could commit to support the event by:
exhibiting, attending, marketing the event to your wider networks and most importantly helping us source some really good/innovative speakers and sessions for this workshop room.
Obviously I need to hammer out all the details but this is just an in principle are Co-tech interested and who should I talk to.

Co-tech agree to "Sponsor" the tech stream at Congress Closed Fri 22 Dec 2017 5:17PM
Great I'll take this forward, first stage I'll talk to the comms working group about branding.
A more formal agreement can be written up if required, but in principle for the proposal:
Co-operatives UK brands the tech stream and workshop room at Congress "In partnership with Co-tech" and mentions this in the programme, website and event marketing (assuming you give us the text and logo's).
In return, Cotech members agree to:
- Help source innovative and relevant speakers from the tech sector and their own members (Co-ops UK get final say on inclusion in the programme)
- Market the event to their tech networks and put is a good attendance from their own members
- A decent number of Co-tech members exhibit.
(Normal Co-ops UK member discount apply for tickets and ehibitors)
