Raising your brand profile

Associating and affiliating your brand with the Care Home Awards will generate strong brand recognition within the sector. Your presence at the Awards luncheon, where you will present an award in person and host a table will show the sector how important you are within it.


PR and marketing opportunities

Branding does not begin and end at the event itself. Sponsors enjoy a whole 9 months of marketing opportunities to both the consumer market and the trade sector ensuring that your brand profile is at the forefront of your customers minds throughout the year.


Industry leadership

You may already consider yourself as one of the industry’s leaders, or perhaps you are looking to establish yourself as one. Awards sponsorship puts you at the very heart of the sector enabling you to stand out from competitors.


Business development

We expect over 300 leading care home sector senior executives in the room on the day of the awards, so this event is a unique opportunity for you and your team to network with the industry’s key decision makers. Use sponsorship and the event to host and thank your key customers, initiate new business and generate new business opportunities.
