Common Ground Publishing offers a number of opportunities for companies who might want to offer sponsorship to our conferences and journals. We ask that interested organisations are linked with the themes of the conference and are willing to connect with the conference and journal community. Allow us to help you increase exposure of your organization within our community of engaged and enthusiastic academics, undergraduate and graduate students, teachers, artists and professionals.

Conference sponsorship packages combine marketing and branding association before the event and maximum exposure during the conference. For companies wishing to target a specific day, materials, or social events during the conference, individual sponsorship provides an attractive option. This allows your organization to choose your desired level of involvement and exposure to attendees at the conference. A key reason why attendees come to Common Ground conferences is to establish personal contacts and to network with other delegates and interested parties from around the world - so social events such as the conference dinner, lunches and breaks are very well attended. Below are our sponsorship packages.
