Institutional Web Management Workshop 2007:
Next Steps for the Web Management Community
Workshop Sponsors


About The Sponsorship Programme

The Institutional Web Management Workshop series provides an opportunity for members of institutional Web management teams within (primarily) the UK's higher education community to enhance their professional skills, to learn from their peers and to share best practices across the community.

The spirit of sharing is helped by the opportunity for social networking that is provided at this annual event.

The event is supported by a number of sponsors, both commercial and academic, of the event who help to contribute to the range of activities provided at the workshop. This year we will also be holding an exhibition.

Details of this year's sponsors are given below.
