Supporting IPS Connect

On behalf of the IPS Connect 2018 organising committee I invite you to support this important utility and independent power producer forum. 

The International Isolated Power System Connect Workshop seeks to become the premier remote area power systems workshop across Asia Pacific and North America for the exchange of research, new technology and training.  This workshop provides a forum for academics, industry researchers and experts in power engineering to discuss and share ideas, present results, reflect on past experiences and discuss future projects.

 The workshop committee would be pleased to negotiate a specific sponsorship package to accommodate any particular need of your organisation.

Please do not hesitate to contact Ben Thiessen at the IPS Connect Secretariat, Conference Design, to discuss sponsorship opportunities.

Regards,

Why become a Sponsor or an Exhibitor?

As part of a strategic marketing plan, sponsoring or exhibiting at the IPS Connect Workshop can take you straight to your market.

  • Sponsorship provides your organisation with the perfect opportunity to establish or maintain a profile with your target audience.
  • Sponsorship demonstrates a level of commitment and support that will be openly displayed and widely acknowledged throughout the Workshop.
  • Your brand will have exposure to a national and international audience.
  • Participation as a sponsor is a legitimate tax deduction in the form of advertising and promoting a company or organisation’s activities.

For facilities and host organisations invited to participate the event establishes your asset as an internationally recognised showcase for recent or emerging technology demonstration and innovation.
