Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities

The World Hospital Congress is the major international conference which each year brings hospital and health services leaders from around the world together to share views and experiences, network and develop excellence in healthcare and hospital leadership. 

Each year the Congress is hosted by a different country and in 2018 that honour will be awarded to Australia through the Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association in partnership with Queensland Health. The Congress was last held in Australia in 1997 when it attracted significant crowds. Anticipation is already high both for local and international delegates.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to engage with the world’s most influential and leading thinkers on the future of hospitals.

The Congress Organising Committee recognise that one size does not necessarily fit all. Should you like to negotiate a package to specifically suit your corporate objectives and specific areas of interest please contact Lisa Robey (AHHA)  on +61 2 6162 0780 or email lrobey@ahha.asn.au.


The World Hospital Congress offers exceptional sponsorship and exhibition opportunities to showcase your organisation and to associate your brand with thought leadership, sector networking and partnership development.

The World Hospital Congress consistently attracts strong audiences of health executives and decision makers who are actively seeking new products and services to support their health services. This will be a rare opportunity to be able to reach up to 1,500 decision makers from across the world in one place.

Not only will sponsoring the Congress provide you access to key healthcare and hospital leaders, the organising team will work closely with all sponsors to ensure you are satisfied with your involvement and return on investment. The selection of sponsorship packages featured in this prospectus varies in commitment level thus providing marketing solutions for any sized organisation. In addition to the set packages outlined, sponsorship packages can be customised to meet your organisation’s objectives.

Our aim is to provide support to sponsors to allow you to generate the best possible outcomes from participating in the Congress. If you are a major stakeholder in the hospital and health care sector, or are looking to play a larger role, there is no better opportunity to promote your organisation to the sector’s leaders than the World Hospital Congress.
