Exhibition, Advertising & Sponsorship

The British Society of Criminology is holding its Annual Conference at Sheffield Hallam University, from Tuesday 4th to Friday 7th July 2017.

The British Society of Criminology aims to further the interests and knowledge of both academic and professional people who are engaged in any aspect of work or teaching, research or public education about crime, criminal behaviour and the criminal justice systems in the United Kingdom. The Society has been in existence for over 50 years and has a wide-ranging membership based here and overseas, with a substantial attendance from international delegates at the annual conference.

Our objective is to integrate our commercial partners, criminal justice stakeholders and third-sector organisations into the conference and to hold an exhibition to present their products and services to delegates.

We aim to ensure that exhibitors have maximum exposure to delegates throughout the conference and we have a variety of opportunities for exhibitors, advertisers and sponsors.

Your organisation is cordially invited to take advantage of the sponsorship opportunities which this event presents.

Conference and Exhibition Venue
Sheffield Hallam University's City Campus is located just a short walk from the railway station and city centre. The exhibition will be sited in the Atrium, City Campus. This is where all day time catering will be served, giving you good access to delegates. The Pennine Lecture theatre, where all plenary sessions will take place, is accessed from the Atrium.

Accommodation
A hotel booking portal has been set up so that you can book accommodation from a range of hotels in the city centre, close to the University. The portal can be accessed from the accommodation page.

Various options for exhibiting, sponsoring and advertising at the event are available and we look forward to hearing from you.
