Our sponsor and vendor partners are integral to the success of the Municipal Symposium. Our corporate partners are a valuable source of products, services, and knowledge for people working in the municipal sector. We value these relationships, and look forward to working together to enhance and strengthen the municipal sector.

The Symposium will bring together municipal councillors, mayors, and administrators representing more than 100 municipalities, making it an ideal venue for generating leads, spreading awareness, and promoting your goods and services to the municipal sector.

We have created a range of packages for you to choose from. Additionally, we are able to work with your company to create a custom sponsorship package tailored to your needs.
