Blog: Dave LeggettConference sponsorship

Dave Leggett | 9 July 2003

Just had a nice young lady from Singapore on the phone trying to interest me in just-auto being an 'official media sponsor' for a conference there. Here we go again. It went exactly to script. We can get our name associated with it if we promote it in certain ways. No fee contra deal. Right. So we give over some of the space on just-auto that we devote to sponsors/advertisers who pay us for the privilege, just so that we can have the just-auto logo buried inside the conference programme somewhere. We put fee-paying bums on this conference's seats and get what in return? Nothing. Do me a favour. Bit harsh? Possibly, but I do seem to get a lot of these time-wasting calls.
