The Connect Expo Supporting Partners Program aims to establish equitable-value, mutually beneficial, barter-only relationships with qualified not-for-profit industry bodies/associations, as well as media outlets. To date we are proud to have partnered with over 30 such organisations.

Negotiation of each barter-deal depends on the value being offered. Our goal is to ensure that the benefits offered by Connect are of relatively equal (matching) value to the exposure received in return.

NOTE: To be considered for a supporting partnership, the barter needs to happen between 9 - 5 months prior to the event date.
