Partnership opportunities

The National Children and Adult Services Conference is vital to councillors, senior officers, policy makers and service managers with responsibilities for children and adult services in the statutory, voluntary and private sector.

We are delighted that the conference will return to the Manchester Central Conference Centre for 2020.

The conference, the largest of it’s kind which attracts around 1,000 delegates each year, is an opportunity for those with an interest in social care, children’s services, education, health and related fields to network with peers and hear the very latest thinking on key policy and improvement and innovation agendas.

The conference offers a variety of keynote and workshop sessions delivered by a wide range of speakers and presenters and covering best practice examples, innovation and learning, keynote speeches and policy announcements. The conference is attended by councillors, directors of adult services, directors of children’s services, assistant directors and heads of service, sector specialists, civil servants, both government and opposition ministers and service providers in the independent, health and voluntary sectors.

At the centre of the conference sits the exhibition with over 80 exhibiters from a wide range of organisations working in the children and adult sectors.

Partnership Opportunities

Our partnership and exhibition packages offer an unrivalled opportunity to engage with key decision makers, debate issues of national importance with system leaders and position your organisation alongside a wide range of public, private and voluntary sector colleagues.  Given we only work with a limited number of partners we often look at bespoke solutions around each partner relationship.

Examples of previous partnership opportunities include:

  • Main conference partner
  • Drinks reception sponsor
  • VIP dinner sponsor
  • Breakfast/early evening fringe session
  • Conference badges
  • Inserts in conference handbook
  • Inserts in delegate bags
  • Drinks reception sponsor
  • Breakfast/early evening fringe session.


The exhibition is the central hub for the conference, situated in the Exchange Hall to ensure delegates are constantly moving through the exhibition space. All refreshments, lunches, drinks reception and networking breaks will take place within the exhibition space.

The exhibition regularly sells out and exhibitors are recommended to book early.
