Sponsorship and Trade Exhibition

The Organising Committee invites you to become a sponsor at the 25th International Geophysical Conference and Exhibition.

Our commercial sponsors and exhibitors are an integral and essential component of our discipline and the Conference provides a unique opportunity for all those involved in minerals, petroleum, geothermal, geotechnical, and environmental geophysics to come together. Your involvement will allow you optimal exposure for your company and products.

All major sponsors* and exhibitors will have unrestricted access to attend all scientific sessions and plenary lectures to help you understand the needs and direction of our profession, to the benefit of all. The Welcome Reception on Sunday 21 August 2016 and daily catering will be served in the exhibition area to maximise interaction between “trade” and the registrants.

There are a wide variety of sponsorship and exhibitor packages to help you promote your brand and directly interact with your clients/stakeholders.

For further information contact the Conference Manager.

*Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsors only

Public Liability Insurance

Australian regulations require all exhibitors to have adequate Public and Product Liability Insurance cover based on a limit of indemnity to the value of A$10,000,000 or above. This refers to damage or injury caused to third parties / visitors on or in the vicinity of an exhibition stand. The venue may request a copy of your Public Liability Insurance Certificate. Most companies already have adequate cover. To assist you in locating your certificate within your organisation - it can often be found with the accounts / finance departments and is also often referred to as ‘Broadform’.
