Whether you're looking to raise awareness of your products and services, make new connections, or differentiate your brand from the competition – sponsorship of our leading regional industry awards could help you do it.

Packages to suit you

Whether you wish to sponsor one event, a number of events in a specific area of the country, or the entire series, we offer standard sponsorship packages or can create something more bespoke to meet your needs.

Reach a PR audience across the UK

Sponsorship of the PRide Awards provides you with a direct platform to:

  • reach the PR marketplace
  • engage with an audience of more than 2,000 leading practitioners across nine Award ceremonies
  • position your brand as a major player in the industry.

Benefit from brand visibility throughout the Awards marketing programme (March 2017 – December 2017), at the nine Award ceremonies between September and December, and online until February 2018.

At the PRide Award ceremonies, entertain clients and prospects at your table or bring your team along to work the room. You'll have some stage presence too: as part of your sponsorship package, you'll be invited to present an award and have your photograph taken with the winner.

What our sponsors say

Kantar Media have been headline sponsor of the CIPR PRide Awards for the past 10 years and we are delighted to continue our support.

The regional award ceremonies are must attend events for us in terms of brand visibility and networking, as well as being fantastic occasions to celebrate the best of the industry with our clients across the UK. We've seen the ceremonies grow from strength to strength – we continually receive really positive feedback from guests and colleagues alike - and it's always a pleasure working alongside the CIPR Events team.

- Emma Trim, Marketing Manager, Kantar Media.
