Summit 2022 Sponsorship medly v2

Sponsorship of the ODI Summit isn’t just about putting your brand on our Summit materials and showing support for the ODI. It’s about finding ways to promote your business through joint communications, digital content, and Summit participation. Whether you’re an established multi-national tech company or an ambitious start-up here’s why organisations both big and small are sponsoring this year’s event.

1. Show leadership in your sector around current data issues by aligning your organisation with the ODI’s mission and high-profile summit speakers.

2. Generate leads. Summit sponsorship gives you many ways to connect with your audience. There are options to have a virtual booth, and ahead of that you can share your message digitally.

8. Support ethical data use by showing your commitment to the ODI’s vision to make data work for everyone. It’s a good look.


9. Showcase your work. Got a new data product, piece of research, or high impact project the world needs to know about? The Summit is a great opportunity to share your best work with a highly-engaged audience.


10. Curate – or give a talk at the Summit. Silver packages and upwards get to work with our Summit team to shape and present an engaging Summit session. It’s your chance to get creative.

11. Help make this year’s Summit the best yet. For many in the data community, the ODI Summit is their most important event of the year. Data is key to tackling big stuff like climate change, and the cost of living crisis. With your support and contribution we can make it more accessible, more impactful, and the best it's ever been.
