Partnership opportunities

WHY INVEST?

Partnering with QCOSS at the QCOSS State Conference 2017 will provide your organisation with the opportunity to maintain a high profile among your clients and key stakeholders before, during and after the conference.

Your organisation will benefit from:

  • widespread and visible acknowledgement of your involvement in and support of the QCOSS State Conference 2017;
  • exposure to approximately 300 decision-makers from the community and social service sector;
  • an opportunity to showcase and promote your products and services to your primary target markets;
  • broad pre-conference exposure through emails to our extensive contact list, enewsletters, websites and social media (subject to chosen package).

THE AUDIENCE

The QCOSS State Conference is well attended by key decision-makers and representatives from both government and the not-for-profit sector.

Attendees from previous QCOSS State Conferences include senior managers from the community service sector; consumer advocacy groups; ethnic and multicultural groups; Indigenous networks and organisations; local, state and federal government representatives, as well as rural and regional representatives; playgroups, children’s groups and services; philanthropic trusts and foundations; and academics from Queensland’s leading universities.

This year’s conference will take place over two days. While day one comprises plenary and concurrent sessions in traditional conference format, day two will offer two masterclasses. The conference will focus on people who have approached their business differently – people who have seen a challenge and gone about solving it in an ‘out of the box’ way or beyond the funding cycle. We believe the subject matter will attract distinctly different attendees, providing sponsors and exhibitors with a wide-ranging audience.
