Presentation and Category Sponsors and Supporters

retailTRUST believes that the health of all colleagues is a foundation of the ongoing success of British retail. Since 1832 and now for almost two centuries retailTRUST have been at the heart of how the retail industry cares for, protects and improves the lives of its most valuable asset – its people.
The Trust’s vision is to build a coalition of businesses and leaders that recognise the responsibility the industry has to look after the people that contribute to its financial success, and build a healthy, happy, diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects retail’s position as the premier industry in the UK economy.
Today, thanks to the support the industry provides, retailTRUST helps retailers care for the most vulnerable in the retail sector via access to career-changing learning and development; financial, emotional and physical wellbeing services and supported-living estates.
Key values of the retailTRUST are caring, innovating and being trusted.


Sponsors and Supporters


Why sponsor?

In a normal year, without the restrictions that Covid-19 imposes, sponsoring the Learning Excellence Awards will provide a host of branding, marketing, networking and data opportunities in print, online and face-to-face at the event. We are keen to enlist as Sponsors the participation and support of commercial organisations that serve the whole training, learning and development sector.

Sponsorship Types

For 2021, sponsorship will be for the online presentation on April 16.

In more normal times, all categories will be available to sponsors and, in addition, there are other opportunities for sponsorship, from the Reception, to the After Glow Tea Party or to Advertising or Table sponsors

Each sponsorship can be customised for an individual sponsor. Sponsors will receive branding and recognition in all promotional activity related to the awards. Please CONTACT US in the first instance to learn about the packages available.

Raising your brand profile

Associating your brand with the Learning Excellence Awards will generate strong brand recognition within the sector. Your visibility during the online presentation for 2021, or your presence at the awards event in future years, where you will present an award in person and host a table, will show the sector how important you are within it. 

PR and marketing opportunities

Branding does not begin and end at the event itself. Sponsors can enjoy up to 12 months of marketing opportunities to the sector ensuring that your brand profile is at the forefront of your customers’ minds throughout the year. 

Industry leadership

You may already consider yourself as one of the industry’s leaders, or perhaps you are looking to establish yourself as one. Awards sponsorship puts you at the very heart of the sector enabling you to stand out from competitors. 

Business development

We hope that Sponsors can use their participation in the Awards to host and/or thank key customers, initiate new business and generate new business relationships and opportunities.
