SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Why You Should Be a Sponsor

The EEA Annual Conference is the premier forum for our industry to look at national and international challenges for engineers and engineering in delivering New Zealand’s electricity supply requirements.
This is an excellent opportunity to:

  • Market your brand, raise your profile and promote your products and services to key stakeholders and engineering staff in the electricity supply industry
  • Gain incredible exposure at one of the biggest events on the New Zealand electricity supply industry event calendar
  • Enjoy extraordinary visibility in promotional material and at key Conference functions
  • Have your brand associated with leading edge technologies and solutions
  • Achieve recognition as a key supporter of the EEA and its activities
  • Receive priority status for trade exhibition stand selection if exhibiting also

We expect over 600 delegates, 113 Trade Exhibition stands, exhibitors and visitors to attend the two and a half day conference including local and international representatives from all parts of the electricity supply industry sectors. Previous events have been attended by industry CEOs and senior managers; engineering and asset management staff; technical, safety and business development managers; system analysts and planners; field staff and supervisors; engineering students and academics from NZ universities; Government officials; consultants and contracting staff; standards writers and others.

COVID-19 Contingency

Through surveying past exhibitors and delegates we have learned that the preference is to have a face to face event so we are planning an onsite, in-person event with elements of online content for those that are unable to join us. However, in the event of higher alert levels being imposed with gathering restrictions we will move EEA2022 to a fully virtual online event. If this was to occur we will be in touch with all our confirmed sponsors to discuss options of sponsorship in this realm.
