Why sponsor

We tailor custom-built content and networking opportunities to get you and your sales team in front of your key target accounts in 2020.


The market is saturated with cyber security vendors, all trying to sell to the same small pot of prospective clients. In the current climate, with sellers and buyers both under significant pressure, valuable discussion time with real decision-makers, who have an active interest in your area of expertise, is key to generating leads and making sales.

Through AKJ Associates' global e-Crime & Cybersecurity conference series, we have been running prestigious, high-level events worldwide for 20 years. We know the right people and they know us - and through e-Crime & Cybersecurity Bespoke, we can bring together senior decision-makers from your key target accounts for a range of content and networking opportunities, including:

  • private round-table meetings, held in person over a three-course meal in a prestigious venue
  • fully hosted webinars
  • virtual roundtables
  • delegate acquisition services for your own webinars
  • and more!

How it works

  • You provide us with the content you would like to speak about on the day and let us know the desired format
  • You let us know who you want to reach – e.g. region, sector, key target accounts
  • We use our extensive network of contacts and the relationships we have forged with key delegates for over 20 years, and personally invite them to attend the exclusive round-table
  • If you need assistance in tailoring your content or target lists we are happy to help
  • We handle logistical aspects such as venue booking, logistics, followup with delegates, provision of platform if applicable, etc.
     

Formats


Virtual Round-Tables

Our virtual round-table meetings take place entirely online, and consist of 60-90 minutes of discussion, centred around a topic of your choice, with personally invited delegates from your key target accounts.

The meeting is hosted on our platform, which allows sponsors and delegates to interact via audio and video, and also offers sponsors the option to give a presentation. This could take the form of a standard PowerPoint presentation, a demo, a case study with one of your clients, a ‘war-game’ style interactive session, or a range of other options – the more creative the better!

We handle all delegate acquisition, the hosting of the meeting, ensuring delegates are logged in and ready for the meeting to start, and all technical details. If required, we will also provide an experienced moderator who will work with you before and during the event to ensure high levels of interactivity and engagement.


Webinars

Our fully-hosted webinar service delivers delegates, moderators and platform to you in one easy-to-use package. We handle delegate acquisition, which is carried out personally using our experienced delegate relationship and marketing teams, and ensuring they’re up-to-date with details of the logistics and platform.

All you need to do is let us know your audience requirements and be ready to share your content!

Content is key to a successful webinar, so we will also provide a moderator and editorial assistance beforehand and on the day.


Delegate Acquisition

If you're running your own event – either digitally or in person – and you'd like to make sure the right people are there, our highly skilled and professional team is available to help you with the delegate acquisition process.

In this model, you are responsible for the delivery of the event itself and all logistical and technological details, while the e-Crime Bespoke team will liaise with you to assist with delegate acquisition and relationship management.

We can also provide a range of add-on services to enhance the success of your event, such as content advisory services, and the provision of experienced moderators with cybersecurity subject knowledge.


Whitepaper Mailer

Looking to gain exposure fast? Have a particular market in mind? Over the past 20 years we've built an extensive network of IT security and compliance professionals across EMEA, and we can send a whitepaper mailer on your behalf to our contacts in your chosen target region.


Physical round-table meeting

 The Executive Round-Table is three hours long and takes place at a 5* venue, at which we handle all logistical and catering arrangements.

The meeting starts with a 30 minute champagne reception in a private room, where you will be able to network with the delegates over a glass of champagne or other drink.

This is followed by a sit-down 3-course meal of fine dining, over which you will have the opportunity to give a 20-minute presentation. The rest of the time will be dedicated to discussion of the topic with the delegates, allowing you to understand in depth the key challenges they're currently facing.

These can be hosted in all major European cities, as well as the UAE and Asia, including:

  • London
  • Manchester
  • Edinburgh
  • Stockholm
  • Helsinki
  • Amsterdam
