Enterprise Data Summit (Hadoop)

A brand new two day summit, produced in partnership with Cloudera, one of the leading Hadoop distributors.  The summit includes specialist business and technical theatre tracks, featuring end-user case studies and practical takeaways.  A range of Cloudera partners will exhibit as part of the summit, showcasing their complementary technologies and solutions.

Software Defined Network (SDN) conference

We are proud to announce that IP EXPO Europe will feature an important new conference on SDN, produced in association with the Open Networking Foundation (ONF).  SDN is the next wave of infrastructure virtualization, promising the same agility and efficiency gains already delivered in the storage, server and desktop arenas.

The Futures Den is a unique community space dedicated to start-up companies in the technology industry.  Developed in collaboration with Tech Trailblazers, a global awards initiative for enterprise tech start-ups, the Futures Den will showcase technological and commercial innovation and entrepreneurial excellence.

The extra space at London ExCeLallows IP EXPO Europe to offer a greater international audience.  With the introduction of country pavilions and a new European marketing campaign, our overseas visitors will grow significantly. 

European marketing campaign

In addition to the sizeable European contact database we have built whilst running the event for the last 8 years, we have formed several new partnerships with leading European media titles and embassies to promote the event across Europe.

Imago have set out to create a turnkey environment, enabling vendors to speak, exhibit and sponsor whilst maintaining the best possible ROI.

With the right strategy, IP EXPO Europe gives you an opportunity to successfully expand your company’s customer base.  The delegates who attend are motivated, interested and looking to purchase IT solutions.

Sponsor

  • Raise your profile
  • Theatre Sponsorship
  • Sales Brochure

We have a number of ways you can successfully raise your profile at the event

Event Sponsorship - As one of the key event sponsors, your brand will be constantly visible throughout the entire IP EXPO marketing campaign. The package also includes high profile branding at the event itself as well as speaking and lead generation activities.

Bag Sponsorship - The event bag not only gives you an effective vehicle for brand exposure but enables you to add relevant collateral to the bag, drumming up interest in both your seminars and your stand.

Lanyard Sponsorship- With every delegate, speaker, exhibitor and press member at IP EXPO Europe wearing a badge and lanyard, the Lanyard Sponsorship package is an excellent opportunity to ensure your brand name is broadcast throughout the event. 

IP EXPO Europe Mobile App - With no printed Event Guide at the event, sponsoring the official IP EXPO Europe Mobile App will seriously raise your brand profile.  With 9,500+ user downloads in 2013, the tech-savvy IP EXPO audience has readily adopted the new paperless format.

Branded London Taxis - Eye-catching, iconic and a blank canvas for your creative.  We offer branded taxi deals 2 months prior to the show. These taxis will also be situated outside the event on show days.

Bar Sponsorship - Will dramatically raise your brand profile at IP EXPO Europe.  This area is designed to let visitors and exhibitors relax, network and catch up with colleagues and customers in a comfortable, spacious environment (we dedicate 10% of the floorplan to delegate seating areas).

Theatre Sponsorship - Proven to be the most effective way of gathering high volumes of leads at the event, theatre sponsorship also gives you the largest exposure of your brand throughout the IP EXPO Europe marketing campaign.
