Sponsorship Opportunities

The RDI Conference brings together international experts and guests, Australian practitioners and academics, private sector stakeholders, Australian and international students, and government representatives. This is all made possible through the generous support of our sponsors.

RDI Conference 2019 will progress dialogue and action, addressing the theme Leadership for Inclusive Development.

As a sponsor of this highly anticipated event, your organisation will:

  • Reach an audience of over 400 individuals, representing current and future leaders of the international development sector. Share your message and engage with a captive audience of influencers.
  • Raise your brand’s profile through public communications associated with the conference, including the conference website and media.

Your sponsorship will support the running of this highly-anticipated event and will be recognised through up-front exposure through Conference communications. Your brand will be featured and acknowledged throughout the Conference.

Sponsorship opportunities are flexible, and we welcome the chance to chat with you about different options of support suitable for your organisation or business.
