Corporate Patron

A key focus of the International Metropolis Conference 2018 will be the exploration of the impact of policy shifts on business. Valuable networking and engagement opportunities will be provided to Corporate Patrons as we view these as our strategic partners in the successful delivery of Metropolis 2018; and we encourage sponsors to share their stories with attendees.

Seize the opportunity to be associated with unparalleled thought leadership and ideas generation and be part of a contemporary global conversation about business and migration. Metropolis isn’t just about abstract academic ideas, its about impact and effect, and the participation of the corporate sector is a key focus of discussion and a driver of policy consideration. 

Keep the conversation going. Contact Drew Whait at or phone +61 2 9265 0700.

Delegates often seek refuge from the hustle and bustle of a busy program schedule. Metropolis will feature four unique networking lounges, each named after a global region and able to be customised by the sponsor. The networking lounge themes are:

The lounges will provide delegates and exhibitors with excellent opportunities to network in a favourable environment that provides a central and energised meeting place for all participants. Additional information can be found in the sponsorship prospectus.
