Sponsorship Opportunities

The HA Conference exhibition provides you with a great opportunity to enhance your CPD experience by learning about the latest products and services being developed to support you and your team.

As a charity, we try to keep the cost of attending Conference as low as possible, particularly for students and those new to teaching. The revenue that we raise from the exhibition and from our sponsors helps us to do this, so we are grateful for their continued support.

Many of our exhibitors offer complimentary resources on their stands, so make sure that you visit to collect useful information, take advantage of exclusive event discounts and take part in light-hearted competitions with colleagues!

The exhibition also provides a good chance for you to catch up with many of your existing suppliers and discuss how well their products and services are delivering results for your school, college or trust.
