Sponsorship

Why to be apart of It?

Five Reasons to Consider Sponsoring 2019 IEEE GCIoT

  1. Sponsoring our 2019 IEEE GCIoT will give you the opportunity to help and support MENA technology ecosystem growth and development, facilitate and promote innovation, entrepreneurship, and build local awareness of IoT – the world’s recent technology trend. You will also get a wide exposure to both electronic and printed media; positive publicity that will create heightened visibility of your products and services.
  2. Public Relations (PR) is becoming a more important component of any firm's integrated marketing communication strategy. Moreover, it is now changing from passive acts like issuing press releases and responding to press inquiries, to a more active role. Event sponsorship is one of the ways in which you take the lead, and build targeted awareness about your company/organization and its brand.
  3. In many cases, such sponsorship can generate media coverage that might not be available otherwise. Your sponsorship will help you communicate your key corporate messages and values, and associate your brand with business and technology leadership, sending a strong and inspiring message to the regional business community.
  4. Moreover, being a part of the elite community of high-level parties that have the greatest impact on the ICT industry and ecosystem in the MENA region will give you the opportunity to initiate and establish different forms of possible collaboration with key partners from business, academic, and government domains.
  5. If you are planning to enter new markets in different Arab countries, or to launch a new product or service related to IoT, this will be an excellent opportunity for you to achieve that, through this high profile local and regional initiative.
