Sponsorship and industry display

The trade display for the HEIA(Q) 2017 conference was fully booked; HEIA(Q) thanks all sponsors and exhibitors for their generous support. We are now accepting expressions of interest to sponsor or exhibit at the 2018 conference.

Align your business with the association to build brand awareness and to enhance your company profile and showcase, launch, sell and/or demonstrate new or existing products to a targeted audience. We would be delighted to discuss any sponsorship or exhibition opportunities with you. Our aim is to ensure that delegates walk away from the conference feeling inspired and uplifted and that our supporters receive the most exposure from their support of HEIA(Q) and the conference. Please contact Expert Events, the conference secretariat on 07 3848 2100 or to discuss sponsorship opportunities in further detail. We are open to any new ideas and to negotiation.

Thank you to our sponsors and exhibitors for their support:

Mushrooms Logo WHITE RGB Published scientific research in the last decade reveals that mushrooms can improve human health through their influence on immune function. The CSIRO report (2014) on mushrooms and health stated: ‘[i]n comparison to common vegetables, the common white button mushroom (Agaricus bisporus) remains a remarkable source of protein, phosphorus, magnesium and vitamin D. Cultivated mushrooms are a valuable source of several micronutrients and are a low kilojoule, nutrient-dense food’. Visit our stand to get the latest on the mushroom and your health. Please stay and sample some mushrooms dishes at our table at the conference.
