Sponsors

Intranet Now is an independent, technology agnostic, intranet and comms conference.

We (Lisa and Wedge) want to keep costs low to make sure that Intranet Now is accessible to everyone – and we can only put on such a big, swish event with the direct support of the wider industry.

Sponsors are invited to speak and exhibit at the conference, and we treat sponsor-speakers in the same way we treat practitioner speakers. Everyone gets to speak, and nobody does a ‘pitch’. Instead, every speaker brings their experience and real-world examples to the stage.
