Packages and benefits as follows:

Presentation of an Award

By announcing the winner of an award category at the Awards Dinner, and presenting the award to that winner, Platinum Sponsors receive significant recognition of their organisation by the 450+ attendees at the Gala Dinner. This is a key benefit of this level of sponsorship, and one that limits the number of Platinum Sponsors to a maximum of ten – the number of INCITE Awards presented.

Marketing

  • All stationery and advertising material associated with the Awards, proudly carry the Platinum Sponsors’ corporate identification.
  • Platinum sponsors will also receive a promotional article in one of the monthly INCITE Awards newsletters. A video may also be embedded.
  • Recognition and promotion will be given to Platinum Sponsors at the activities of the Alliance professional and industry associations, including the Australian Computer Society (ACS) and supporting associations as opportunities arise.

Social Media

The INCITE Awards marketing committee actively promotes Platinum Sponsors through social media promotions using LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. There is the opportunity for Platinum Sponsors to actively promote a success story or new product or service through our social media channels.

Advertising

Advertisements are placed in a National/State newspaper. Platinum Sponsors’ logos will appear in these advertisements. Identification of all Platinum Sponsors of the Awards is an integral part of all advertisements.
