Full packages are available for the 2019 award category and drink sponsorships, which include a variety of perks, including access to the awards ceremony.

Sponsorship of the 2019 West Midlands Finance Awards offers businesses unrivalled exposure to a very large audience before, during and after the event. The package allows sponsor companies to build and promote their brand within the region.

As the Midlands' finance market continues to see major growth, and the demand for talent outweighs supply, it is increasingly important for businesses to position themselves effectively. Sponsoring an award allows companies to do just that!
