Events sponsorship, exhibition and promotional opportunities

The CDI organises a well-developed annual programme of skills training and events, from our expert training sessions to large conferences, which attract hundreds of attendees.

Our events are held face-to-face or in recent years, hosted virtually on our online meeting platform Hopin, which means our events are accessible to members from across the UK.

Partner with us for an event and align yourselves with excellence in career development and forwardthinking in the profession. We have a limited number of sponsorship, exhibitor and promotional packages available for each event.
