About the London Councils Summit
The London Councils Summit is the primary event in the London Councils calendar and provides a unique opportunity to network with councillors from across London and key individuals in the public sector. The 2016 Summit will be held during November at the City of London Corporation's Guildhall. Packages are available that cater for most budgets including the headline sponsor package, printed programme adverts, sponsorship of delegate bags, inserts into delegate bags and exhibition opportunities.

The Summit is an opportunity to increase awareness of your organisation among senior politicians and key decision makers in local government, highlight current campaigns or communicate key information to local community representatives. You can watch a short film that gives a flavour of the day, including interviews with exhibitors, on our YouTube channel.
Benefits of exhibiting
An exhibition stand provides you with the opportunity to get some valuable face-to-face contact with delegates. Throughout the day you will be able to discuss issues relevant to your business with the decision-makers in London local authorities.
Exhibition spaces are all located within the busy catering area - ensuring good footfall throughout the day. Delegates are directed upon arrival to the exhibition/catering area, as well as during lunch and both morning and afternoon refreshment breaks.
The cost of an exhibition space includes a 100 word listing in the conference programme and two complimentary delegate places to run the exhibition stand and attend the conference sessions.
A feature unique to the Summit allows some exhibitors to run 'micro-surgeries' - offering councillors and exhibitors the opportunity of one-to-one time to discuss solutions to local issues. Micro-surgeries, while not suitable for all exhibitors, will offer a great way of targeting delegates and provide a chance to build relationships. If you are interested in finding out how you could make this work for you, please contact us.
Exhibition packages start at £2,000 (Please note that these stands are VAT exempt)
