Why Sponsor?

Archaeology, and the wide range of social and scientific disciplines associated with it, is at the cutting edge of scientific exploration and knowledge about the movement, settlement and lives of early humans. The papers presented at this conference will cover the latest research results, key heritage issues and new advancements in the application of scientific techniques which will generate considerable media and public interest.

Our delegates are interested in the latest technologies, publications, services and advances in research that will complement their work. Our delegates love to learn about the places they visit; their histories and amenities.

Many delegates visit local heritage, produce and entertainment sites during and after the conference.

Feedback from previous sponsors has shown that sponsorship provides strong results in terms of:

  • extended markets for both products and services;
  • expanded professional networks;
  • information sharing;
  • development of partnerships;
  • increased awareness of organisations; and
  • enhanced corporate exposure.

Where the Sponsorship Money Goes

The costs associated with hosting the Conference are many, varied, and large – sponsorship monies are used in a number of ways to offset costs, including but not limited to support for the:

  • Participation and travel costs for Indigenous delegates who may not otherwise be able to attend;
  • Travel costs of students presenting at the conference;
  • Awards given at the Conference Dinner/Annual Awards Ceremony; and
  • Preparation of conference materials such as registration packs and publication of conference handbooks and abstracts.
