Conference 2018

MANCHESTER
11-12 OCTOBER

The conference

Citizens Advice is the UK’s largest advice-giving organisation.

 

We’re a network of more than 280 independent organisations with over 21,000 volunteers and 7,000 staff.

 

We operate in 2,550 locations across England and Wales - we’re on the high street, in GP surgeries, libraries and courts. Last year we helped 2.7 million people in person, by phone, email or webchat.

 

Our digital advice was accessed more than 37 million times. 

 

Exhibiting at our annual conference puts you at the heart of this.


Annual conference is our flagship event, where people from across the organisation come together to find new ideas, tactics, tools and partners. With a space in the bustling hub of our city centre venue, you’ll have access to more than 800 delegates. More than 60% are in leadership and management - so you’ll be talking directly to decision makers.

Conference 2019

MANCHESTER
18 - 19 November

Why exhibit?

Gemma Greene, Communications and Engagement Manager

After 2 successful years we’re returning to Manchester city centre for a third year. 

 

2019 marks our 80th anniversary as a service. With over 800 delegates excited to celebrate, come together and engage, this year’s Citizens Advice conference is set to be more dynamic and memorable than ever.

 

It’s a great place to showcase your organisation. Here’s a few reasons why:

 

You’ll meet leaders from a network of 30,000 people with a client base of millions.

Our delegates represent a huge geographic network across England and Wales, with vast digital reach - last year we had 28.5 million visits to our website with 2.7 million people being helped in person, by phone, email and webchat.

We’re changing and innovating. We're looking for new ways to be more efficient and more effective.

You’ll be talking to people who are keen to find new tools, solutions and partnerships. Our clients are facing more problems than ever before - our delegates are looking for new and better ways to help them.

 

You’ll be part of our central conference hub - an interactive space at the heart of the event.

We want to help delegates meet people who can make change happen. This year’s exhibition will be at the bustling centre of the event, alongside our internal exhibition and the place delegates will come together to interact and celebrate.

 

And if you sponsor an award, you’ll be invited to join our drinks reception, awards ceremony and awards dinner.

Our awards ceremony is a truly memorable experience - it’s where we celebrate the people and teams who have made an extraordinary difference to people’s lives. They're made even more special this year by our 80th anniversary. As a sponsor you can be part of the event, and join the socialising after.

These are just a few reasons. To find out more and explore the different options available, get in touch using the contact details below.
