Partnership Opportunities

Partnership Opportunities

City Nation Place UK provides a new opportunity for companies offering expertise and solutions for place branding, place marketing and place shaping, who wish to develop more business with UK and national government organisations, local authorities, city marketing teams, economic development partnerships, tourism marketing boards and BID teams. Alongside the event sponsorship opportunities is our "Meet the Experts" zone at, which provides a searchable resource guide for our growing audience.


  • Targeting a difficult to each audience

It is notoriously difficult to identify the decision makers for place making, place marketing and place branding. Every city, regional and national government structures their approach differently and assigns responsibility to different departments or organisations. We continue to build and verify our audience organically – through research, through content marketing, through alliances and partnerships and through word of mouth. Partnership with City Nation Place provides an opportunity to reach and to talk to key influencers and purchasers of services.

  • Thought leader positioning

City Nation Place works with our partners as partners – not just as sponsors with a logo. We will work with you to integrate your expertise into our website, newsletter and event editorial offering.

  • Lead generation

We will tailor your partnership programme to meet your objectives: your presence on the City Nation Place website, your involvement in our event agendas, your exhibition presence will all be structured to provide valuable introductions and leads. You will have access to our events’ online networking hubs in the month either side of the conference date, providing an active opportunity to message targeted attendees to arrange to meet or discuss follow-up activity.
