Sponsorship and Membership

The Rustat Conferences bring together leaders from worlds of academia, politics, business, industry, finance, the public sector, education and the media to discuss and debate the vital issues of the day. We seek to attract members and sponsors to help us sustain the high quality of participation, the frequency of events, and broad outreach to the wider academic, professional and student community through conference reports.

Rustat Conferences Membership
In 2013-14 a Rustat Membership scheme was launched - renewable on an annual basis, the scheme allows companies and individuals to become Rustat Conferences Founder Members and enjoy a range of benefits including invitations to all Rustat Conferences, participation in conference advisory committee meetings on future topics, suggesting speakers and participants, being featured in reports.
