The conference was clearly well organised … the layout encouraged a spread of the footfall which was great … our stand was busy throughout … the delegates were highly knowledgeable and engaging. The conference ran smoothly and interest in our software exceeded my expectations…
Alex, Visible Thread, Previous Conference Exhibitor
The APMP UK Annual Conference is a two-day event offering unparalleled access to hundreds of bid and proposal management professionals including: bid team leaders, key decision makers and budget holders, providing exhibitors with the opportunity to network and demonstrate their products and services. The speaker and refreshments times are structured to include generous time for delegates to network and visit exhibitor stands. The event is promoted through suppliers’ mailing lists, social networking sites and directly to relevant professional bodies and like-minded organisations.

Conference Exhibitors

With the stands positioned immediately outside the main conference and syndicate rooms, the 2018 conference offers exhibitors an excellent location with high levels of footfall. This area will further serve as the only area for tea and coffee breaks. The conference schedule is structured to accommodate plenty of time for delegates to visit exhibitor stands.

The number of exhibitor stands is restricted and offered on a first come, first served basis.  Following exhibitor demand in previous years, early booking is recommended to secure a position.

Stands include a clothed six-foot table, a mains power point, two chairs and complimentary hotel Wi-Fi.
