Top reasons to get involved

  1. Showcase your products and services while promoting your brand at one of the top international development conferences throughout Asia and the Pacific.
  2. Participate in the largest annual gathering of executives, researchers, policy makers and practitioners in the Australian aid and development sector.
  3. Network with 350+ key staff who represent a majority of the managerial or executive level roles within the ACFID membership. Many of your current and prospective customers and employees will undoubtedly be familiar with both the organisations as well as specific campaigns they run.
  4. Develop new partnerships and associations with key decision makers across all facets of the international aid and development sector; including business services, applied research and universities, volunteer education and training, IT and infrastructure, HR and resource management.
  5. Learn about market trends, latest research findings and the future of the sector by attending some of the programmed sessions.

  • Media/publishing houses

Some suggestions to increase engagement, brand awareness or leads at conference

  • Conference hashtag & linking to social media – capture an audience that you may not usually
  • Mailing Lists – encourage passers-by to add their name or business card with a competition or voucher
  • Games & Competitions – after a long day of being spoken to, a light-hearted challenge or piece of trivia is a great way to engage, plus everyone wants a new tablet or smart phone!
  • Consumer Education – if you have a great product and it fits a need, they will buy it.
  • Pre-conference marketing – reach out to specific roles among ACFID members – e.g. Finance or HR Managers
  • New Product Launch – generate buzz around a new product you have by inviting your target market to a ‘side event’ or sponsored session. You could even request to hold a ‘Private Session’ with specific roles only in attendance.
