International Cheese Awards Press Release January 2017: Sponsorship Opportunities at ICA2017!

It might feel like we’ve only just eaten the last of the Christmas cheeseboard, but believe it or not, planning is already in full swing for the 120th International Cheese Awards this July. It’s the biggest and the best cheese show in the world for a reason, and we’re already putting the hard work in to ensure that we top last year’s record-breaking show with its 5000 entries from 27 different countries. If you’d like to get involved with this year’s show, read on for some exciting opportunities…

Sponsor the UK’s biggest dairy networking lunch

The Trade Day lunch, which this year takes place on Tuesday 25th July, is always one of the highlights of the show – a chance for more than 1200 dairy professionals, producers and retailers to catch up and network over a famously good spread and, of course, the world’s best cheeseboard! Sponsoring the Trade Day lunch is a great opportunity to promote your brand - we aim to give your company maximum exposure with your name and logo displayed on hanging banners, table number cards, lunch tickets, menus and the stage display banner. We’ll also run adverts in the Dairy Produce Catalogue and Cheeseboard magazine, on the ICA web site, mailshot emails and many other printed publications. Trade Day attracts a great deal of media attention, so this is the chance to promote your company to a huge audience of dairy professionals and food lovers alike.

Many other sponsorship packages are available to suit all company sizes and budgets – contact Adrian Lawrence on 01270 780306 or via for more details.
