Sponsoring LILAC

LILAC is a prestigious international conference which annually attracts around 300-400 delegates from all over the world. From budget holders to those 'in the field', LILAC has a wide variety of delegates from all levels and sectors of the library and information professions.

2020 Sponsor Packages 

LILAC Sponsorship

Whichever package you choose, your organisation/company will be listed on the conference website and displayed before keynotes and talks in the main conference lecture hall.
