2020 Sponsorship & Exhibition Opportunities

Due to COVID-19 the ASID 2020 Conference Committee and the ASID Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 ASID conference in Auckland.  The conference will be postponed to a later date, to be confirmed.

Invitation

You are invited to participate in the 54th Australasian Society for Intellectual Disability (ASID) 2020 Conference as a sponsor and/or exhibitor. The meeting is the premier event for the Disability Sector in Australasia and the Asia Pacific region.  This year’s theme is Whanaungatanga – Growing Connections.

The ASID Conference has established an excellent reputation over its long history.  The benefits to those attending are wide-spread from researchers, decision makers, practitioners and consumers alike.

ASID is an organisation that champions research and evidence-based best practice in the field of intellectual disability. It is well respected amongst people with intellectual disabilities and their families, providers of services to people with intellectual disabilities and all levels of government departments concerned with people with disabilities.

The conference showcases current research and practice across Australia and New Zealand. It typically attracts approx. 300 enthusiastic people from a wide range of backgrounds and organisations throughout Australasia and beyond. The conference enables those involved with intellectual disability to learn about each other’s challenges, resources and achievements.

Supporting this Conference is an opportunity to generate new work opportunities and make new friends and industry connections. It is an efficient way to learn more about the business opportunities in the disabilities sector with attendees, other sponsors and exhibitors.

  • Networking opportunities – meet and speak with members of ASID from all parts of the sector in a relaxed environment.
  • Sales – generate new leads for your business.
  • Education – learn what’s happening in the intellectual disability sector.
  • Personal contact – build long-term relationships with potential and existing customers.
  • Presence – demonstrate your commitment to the intellectual disabilities sector.

ASID is a not-for-profit organisation and your investment is instrumental in providing the opportunity to improve the lives of individuals with an intellectual disability and their families. Sponsorship reinforces your corporate image, public awareness and enhances your organisation’s standing within the wider community. At the same time you are assisting in ensuring the research is reflected in practice.
