Customer Invitations

As a sponsor we know that you want to meet with possible future customers and to cement relationships with current ones.  To meet your wishes, we are including in the above packages the rights to 1 or 2 conference tickets which can be used by your employees or used as Customer Invites

A Customer Invite is where you can invite a customer to attend the Conference and the Society sends that person the attendance information stating that it is on your behalf. 

All sponsors have access to further Discounted Customer Invites - in addition to your free allocation you can invite customers at the reduced rate of £140. This option can not be used for further employee conference attendance.

The Society can arrange en-suite B&B accommodation at the University and the Conference Banquet for your guest and include it in the information.

If you would like to discuss this offer further please do not hesitate to make contact with Christine Brown at the SGT office on 0114 263 4455 quoting your preferred option or alternatively email her

Please remember that the earlier the sponsorship takes place the greater the exposure of your company as the several calls for papers etc are issued to our membership and wider target audience.

The Society of Glass Technology publishes two highly respected academic journals with subscribers worldwide. If you are interested in advertising please do not hesitate to make contact with the Managing Editor – David Moore on 0114 263 4455.
