Exhibitor and sponsor testimonials
With almost 1,000 senior level delegates from over 60 countries, exhibitors get the opportunity to network with many high level fundraisers from around the world. Below is a selection of testimonials from some of our exhibitors and sponsors that have participated in the conference.
'The Guardian exhibited at the IFC 2012 and also sponsored a category in the Global Awards for Fundraising. The exhibition space was excellent and benefited from a high level of foot traffic, crucially from people interested in learning more about our brand. In addition, the multitude of Workshops, lunches, dinners and drinks receptions gave us invaluable opportunities to network with the most diverse mix of charity sector professionals I have encountered at any such event. We will definitely be back in future.'
Business Development Manager, Guardian Professional
‘Working with the IFC is a great way for Alliance magazine to gain access to a truly global audience. As a publication aimed at those involved with philanthropy and social worldwide, it is wonderful to be able to reach representatives from so many countries within Europe and around the world.’
Communication and Circulation Officer, Alliance magazine (UK)
‘As an online platform specialising in global donations and corporate fundraising, the audience attending made the IFC the ideal conference for ammado to exhibit at. Overall the conference has a good calibre of speakers, is very social and has great opportunities to meet influential people within the fundraising field. The organisers were most helpful and we found the event very useful in terms of positioning our brand and strengthening and developing relationships within the large non-profits with which we are already working. We would certainly recommend it as a key event in the fundraising calendar.’

‘We have been at the International Fundraising Conference for many years. Presenting our new alliance of companies at the conference in 2011 was a great opportunity for us. Most of our members are helping organisations in counties where major gifts fundraising is still in its early days. Being a truly international conference, the IFC has given us exposure to a vast number of fundraisers that work outside of the US and UK and thus face the same challenges that we and our clients have to overcome. We are looking forward to returning to the Congress next year!’
Founder, MIRA Alliance
‘The event was a great success and it was a great opportunity for Appco Group Support to network, with many different charities approaching the group with an interest in working together and building better relationships and partnerships. Appco Group is looking forward to participating in next year’s event.’
General Manager, Appco Group Support UK
‘This was our first time exhibiting at the IFC and it certainly won’t be our last. The event was extremely well organised and the venue was superb. The quality and diversity of Workshops was second to none – we all learnt something! Most importantly we had some very interesting conversations and met many lovely people.’
‘We sponsor the IFC because it is truly the most international fundraising conference of its type - providing a unique forum for the sharing of creative ideas, best practice, innovation and networking on a real and truly international level. Delegates come from highly resourced and resource poor NGOs, all with the same goals in mind, to learn and share.’
Group Managing Director, Fundraising Initiatives
'The IFC in Holland is the best annual conference in Europe for reaching the key decision makers in Pan European NGO's. We at Saturn find the opportunity to network and socialise with senior fundraisers invaluable.’
