BRITISH DAYS IN UKRAINE
19-22 March 2014
Hyatt Regency Hotel, Kyiv
British Days in Ukraine is a major high-profile event to showcase the best of British business excellence to businesses and consumers. The event is planned as part of the wider ‘Britain is GREAT’ campaign.
A business programme will be at the heart of British Days. It will feature two days of B2B events in retail sector (Food & Drink, Lifestyle) followed by two days of exhibitions in ICT/Design/Technology and Education. The B2B events will be by invitation; the other events will be open to the public.
In addition, we will organise a range of seminars/policy meetings on potential themes such as agriculture, IT, energy, and economic benefits of the DCFTA, tackling corruption & bribery and urban regeneration. We will also arrange round table events with senior Ukrainian government officials.
There will be a wide range of social, cultural and sporting events both on the run up and during the main British Days programme. We aim for these to include an opening gala reception, a fashion show, other networking events, art exhibition, competitions, rugby cup, British film festival and British music concerts. Through some of these events, we want to reach out to the wider community, including children and the disabled.
We will have a comprehensive media strategy designed to promote British excellence to partners and consumers. It will include a targeted PR campaign around digital, visual and printed media.
We offer the following sponsorship opportunities:
- General sponsorship (platinum/gold/silver)
- Event sponsorship
Sponsors will benefit from a tailored package including (but not limited to):
