Exhibition and Sponsorship

Sponsorship Programme

Sponsoring the IABSE Symposium 2018 in Nantes offers you a great opportunity to present your organization to an international audience of engineers and architects, researchers, consultants, constructors, students and anyone engaged in the design, construction and maintenance of bridges and structures. Ranging from the Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze categories, each sponsorship level has a specific set of exposure and benefits intended to elevate your organization’s visibility and recognition at the Symposium. In addition, we offer sponsorship of conference hand-outs on which your organization’s logo would be prominently displayed, including lanyards, USB stick with proceedings, conference bags and conference app. Sponsorship opportunities for special events and meals are also available. Details on available sponsorship opportunities are given in the tables on the following pages. Should you be interested in an exclusive high visibility sponsoring package, tailored to your needs as a unique platinum sponsor, please contact us. Corporate sponsors are also welcome to suggest additional entitlements and opportunities to optimize your individual marketing objectives. We will be pleased to evaluate any requests to create customized support packages.


A commercial exhibition is planned at the Symposium venue. This offers a unique opportunity for companies to display their projects, products and services. Companies interested in exhibiting can find information on the Symposium website and are invited to contact the Symposium Secretariat as soon as possible to confirm current availability of exhibition space. A sponsorship program is also available, to allow corporate partners to interact and engage with the Symposium delegates and the engineering community.
