We aim to understand your detailed objectives so that we can tailor a sponsorship package to your requirements and budget.  We're working with Ai Events, organisers of the Airline and Travel Payment Summits, to produce and market the LFPA Spring and Fall Conferences.

Who comes to an LFPA Event?

LFPA events focus very much on content. We have industry practitioners as speakers sharing their insights into the key issues of the day. We don’t sell speaking slots, which means our presentations are not sales pitches thus attracting delegates who want to keep up-to-date with innovations and best practices. Most delegates are senior decision-makers. Our delegates are predominately the people doing the job and making purchasing decisions related to Loyalty Fraud Prevention.  

For more in-depth sponsorship information, relating to our different events, or the make up of our delegates, please ask for our Media Pack.

What sponsorships items are available?

We work with our sponsors to customise their sponsorship package to their corporate objectives and budget.  Our sponsorship items start from US$999 and can be tailored to your exact requirement.

Some of the options available include:

► Exhibition space - great brand presence and your chance to speak with delegates during breaks & lunches
► Brand awareness at the event with sponsorship of coffee breaks, networking receptions. We aim to get your brand out there in front of your target audience
► Establishing your brand as an industry thought leader via white papers or other specialist content on the LFPA website and promotion of your messages on the relevant event websites
► We also can run webinars and can promote your content to our extensive worldwide database of contacts

For a more detailed package, prices and how we can help you get to your target customer, please contact Michael Smith by email.
