EXPO 2017

Love Business Sponsorship & Advertising Opportunities

There are lots of opportunities to raise your profile, engage with your target audience and get involved with Love Business.

#1 - EXPO Sponsorship Opportunities   #2 - Exhibitor Opportunities   #3 - Magazine Advertising & Features

Main Sponsor

The main sponsor has to be relevant to the widest possible audience within Love Business and the East Midlands specifically.

The sponsorship package is developed each year working closely with the sponsor, so that everyone involved from delegates and exhibitors, to the fellow sponsors and organisers get maximum return on investment for their involvement.


Zone Host

It is essential the diversity of the East Midlands business landscape is reflected. The vision is to create an event which has appeal for the region's business ecosystem. This means having strong appeal for the different sectors and the diversity of businesses within them.

To be a Zone Host, you must be an organisation which has a specialism related to the target audience identified:

  • Innovation, Technology & Sustainability
  • Manufacturing & Engineering
  • Transport & Logistics
  • Construction & Property
  • Small Business Zone
  • Leisure, Hospitality & Retail


Zone Sponsor

The 'Zone Host' creates their own sponsorship packages, and any negotiations about sponsorship must be made directly with the zone hosts for that year.


VIP Lounge Sponsorship

This area within the EXPO has become a meeting point for the region's business leaders to maximise their time away from the office. As all 'VIP guests' must be a decision maker within one of the region's larger employers, or from a high profile business - it's a great way to get your brand in front of this exclusive audience.

Access to the Love Business VIP Lounge is by invitation of one of the zone hosts or key sponsors.


VIP Lounge Catering Sponsorship

The catering in the VIP lounge provides a chance to promote your hospitality services to the most exclusive audience in the region. It provides a highly visible presence in a key area of the EXPO.


Presentation Theatre Sponsorship

The main presentation theatre is a key focal point at the EXPO and attracts a broad and diverse audience. With this package you get an opportunity to provide a speaker and feature your branding (accompanied by the Love Business branding).


Presenter & Anchor Sponsorship

To ensure the presentation theatre is well attended, transitions between speakers run smoothly and the audience and speakers engage - a professional presenter and anchor facilitates the day.


Speaker Opportunities

Love Business EXPO is always looking for dynamic, entertaining personalities to present. But most of all, speakers MUST have a subject which is current and relevant to the core audience.


Love Business Driving

As a region with the largest automotive retailer in the UK, No 1 internet retailer, the UK's top retailer of prestige cars and probably the UK's oldest motor dealer - cars had to feature! Love Business driving provides an opportunity to put the latest cars suitable for business driving, and your brand, in front of thousands of potential buyers.


Networking Hub & Cafe Area

This popular breakout area with plenty of seating and tables provides a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the EXPO. Whether you take 5 minutes to rest your legs and sort your emails using the free Wi-Fi, or to have a chat with someone you've just met or planned to meet here - this area provides a great branding opportunity and space to create a real impression.


Interested in getting involved?

As an established event, many of the sponsorship opportunities are agreed well in advance, however as the EXPO is always evolving Love Business is always open to new ideas and partners.

If there is a specific area where you feel you can add value or bring something a little different, we'd love to hear from you.
