Sponsorship

Get your brand in front of global leaders and the ambitious new brands of the future.

FDF runs a range of exciting events through the year including awards ceremonies, formal dinners and training. With our membership ranging from the largest global brands to growing, ambitious SMEs we always enjoy excellent attendance at our events.

There's no better way to get your brand in front of prospective clients and get an excellent return on investment than through sponsorship of FDF events. We also offer a range of exhibitor packages to suit all budgets.

The best way to engage with our delegates is through our gold level (headline) sponsorship which offers unrivalled opportunities to showcase your brand:

  • Engage with industry specialists who you need to get closer to
  • Align your brand with the food and drink sector specialists at a premium event
  • Keep your offer top of mind post event and follow-up with prospective customers.

Gold level sponsorship (£8,000+VAT) includes:

  • Your logo and website address on pre-event material including weekly event mailers to our extensive database
  • Positioning of your logo and website address on our FDF website alongside the event – both public and member areas
  • Mention of sponsorship in FDF newsletters (including monthly events mailer, SME Bulletin and FDF update)
  • An exhibition stand (4 x2m) at the event and marketing material in the delegate pack
  • Four delegate places at the event (inclusive of stand staffers) and 25% discount on additional places
  • Your branding on visual elements of the event including welcome slides and delegate pack inserts plus post event mailers
  • A delegate list (names, job titles, company) and access to the event evaluation
  • Where appropriate a speaker slot at the event, surgery opportunities or other opportunity to be mutually agreed for showcasing your brand
