DRIVING QUALITY AGED CARE SERVICES IN A CHANGING POLICY AND FUNDING ENVIRONMENT

Sydney | 21 – 22 February 2018
 
Whilst the aged care sector was spared from additional cuts in the 2017-18 Budget, we can expect more reforms in the months to come. With calls for the sector to adopt a more market-driven approach, aged care providers cannot rest on their laurels and must continue to innovate their care and funding models to thrive in a competitive market.

How can you prepare your business for future reforms? How will reforms impact the quality of services? How should you position your organization in the marketplace? Can you deliver quality and tailor-made services even in a tight funding environment?

Driving Aged Care Quality 2018 (Sydney, 21-22 February) is a 2-day forum specially designed to bring together government, aged care providers and businesses to discuss the opportunities and challenges confronting the sector as we work towards a more sustainable and affordable aged care system for all Australians.

Raise your profile at the Driving Aged Care Quality Summit
 
Sponsoring the summit, or even taking an exhibition stand, is a fantastic way of raising your company’s profile within the aged care sector and creating greater awareness of your brand. Promote new and existing product and service offerings to a captive audience of your prospective customers. 

We can tailor specific sponsorship and exhibition packages to help you meet and influence the people who are going to ensure the growth of your business now and in the future.

Sponsorship can involve:

  • A speaking slot on the conference agenda – a powerful platform from which to showcase the industry and knowledge and abilities of a senior representative of your organisation
  • Leading a workshop before or after the conference – a more in-depth opportunity of demonstrating your expertise to a smaller, more focused group of individuals with specific needs and problems
  • Branding via the pre-conference brochure, conference website, banners, posters, set panels, conference documentation and delegate gifts – a comprehensive brand awareness raising opportunity which targets people beyond attending the conference itself
  • Hosting a lunch or evening reception for all conference attendees – a fantastic networking opportunity in an environment that you control
  • A tabletop display or exhibition stand in the conference networking area – demonstrate your products, network with attendees, hold informal meetings or just give more exposure to your brand via an exhibition stand in the only networking area in the conference, where all coffee breaks are held, as well as in many cases, lunches, evening receptions and roundtable discussion groups
  • Complimentary and reduced conference passes – ensure key members of staff attend the event for free, or even key clients or prospects. In addition, ensure that your clients book onto the conference via yourselves with a discount only available if they book on as a result of your promotional activity
