									IAF Europe Conference 2011

                    IAF Europe Conference 2011, 14th to 16th October 2011
                                 Dedeman Istanbul Hotel

The IAF Europe Conference 2011
The International Association of Facilitators (IAF) is a global Association founded in 1994. The IAF is dedicated
to raising the professional standards and status of facilitation and encourages the use of group process
methodologies world-wide. As the leading professional organisation for facilitators in the world, the IAF has
six geographic regions with members from more than 63 countries. This year’s IAF Europe Conference will be
held in the historic city of Istanbul where the continents of Europe and Asia meet.

The Conference Theme
This year’s theme will be, ‘Building Bridges’ with the iconic Bosporus Bridge as the symbol. Building Bridges
will relate to the question of how facilitators work across diverse; cultures, beliefs, continents, bridging the old
and the new, the rich and the poor.

Who Attends
The conference is open to both members and non-members from both Europe and the rest of the world. We
expect up to 200 participants from all sectors; corporate, government, non-profit, educational, and voluntary
sectors. Attendees will include consultants, trainers, in-house facilitators, negotiators, organisational advisors,
coaches and anyone who may use methods of facilitation in their work.

2011 Conference Marketing
The conference will be featured in the monthly IAF Europe Newsletters as well as on the IAF Global website.
The official conference website is iaf-europe-conference.org with strategically timed email circulations
promoting the event to potential delegates and groups.

Sponsorship Benefits
We are offering your organisation an opportunity to support this year’s conference and thereby contribute to
the continued success of the IAF in Europe. Sponsorship will increase your organisation’s profile and
networking opportunities with facilitators attending from around the world. Each sponsorship package has
been designed to give you a specific set of entitlements and benefits best suited to your needs to achieve your
marketing and sales goals. If there is no package that fits your requirements, we are happy to design one that
fits your needs.
Exhibit Space
The Conference Exhibition will be located on the upper lobby floor, outside the Dedeman Ballroom which will
be the plenary room for the Conference. As a sponsor, you may choose to take a 3m x 2m exhibition space in
this area where all refreshment breaks will be taken.

Complimentary Delegate Places
If you decide to exhibit, your package will include a number of full delegate places for your people as part of
the package. This gives your organisation valuable networking opportunities with other participants. All
accommodation and meals are included with these delegate places.

Welcome Reception and Dinner
The Welcome Reception will be held in the main restaurant which will be followed by the Welcome Dinner.

This is an excellent opportunity to raise your organisation’s profile at an early stage of the conference in order
to gain recognition of your support for the conference and your products and services.

Conference Gala Dinner (Bosphorus Cruise)
One of the most important events of the entire weekend is Conference Reception and Celebration Dinner.
This year we are taking the opportunity to arrange a Bosphorus cruise dinner with transport provided from the
Conference hotel. This exceptional evening will offer your organisation a unique opportunity to clearly identify
your organisation’s position and support in this European facilitation community.

Conference Bags
Your organisation will be exclusively identified with your logo on the conference delegate bag as part of your
sponsorship package. Many delegates continue to use their Conference bags for some time after these events,
thereby continuing to elevate the profile of your organisation.

Lanyards/Name Badges
Conference lanyards and name badges represent a very visible presence for the duration of the conference.
This will give the sponsor an increased profile among all attendees.

Conference Refreshment Breaks
During the Conference there will be a number of refreshment breaks, both morning and afternoon. These will
be held in the exhibition area to ensure that there is the greatest opportunity for participants to visit the
exhibition stands. This will give you a chance to network with delegates and to discuss your products and

Recognition in the Delegate Pack and Conference Bag
All sponsoring organisations and exhibitors will be acknowledged in the delegate pack which is handed to
every participant when they arrive.

Conference Signage
Make a clear impact and closely associate your organisation with the Conference by having your logo on all
Conference signage.

Website Identification
The official conference website at iaf-europe-conference.org will give highly visible recognition by displaying
your organisation’s logo on all main pages. There is also the opportunity for these logos to link directly to a
page where you will be able to describe how you are supporting the conference and to have a link to your own
website. This will make information about your organisation even more accessible.

Pre-Conference Events and Workshops
Many Sponsors choose to facilitate one, two or even three-day workshops or training events on the days
leading to the Conference. These have the great benefit of attracting people to either come to the Conference
or to arrive early. The organisers will help you make arrangements for your pre-conference events near the
Conference venue. In addition, information about your sessions will be marketed through IAF Europe’s
circulation lists and on the Conference web site. Please contact the Conference office to find out more.
