Sponsor Student Places at IDCC21, £700 + £70 per student place 

This year’s theme is focused on equality and inclusion. We are seeking to attract as much young talent as possible, and from regions of the world which are normally under-represented at IDCC. 

The price of a student ticket is £70. We can organise a separate networking session for you and the students you have sponsored, which is why we would encourage you to sponsor more than one student place. This would give your networking session a team-working feel.
