Roundtable events​

A roundtable event offers an effective way for you to position your organisation as an industry thought leader. The event, hosted at a venue of your choice, affords you an opportunity to debate a hot topic with invited industry experts. Roundtables offer sponsors intimate networking opportunities with existing key clients, hand-picked key industry experts and new business prospects. The event will be attended by a STEP Journal writer and the highlights of the debate will be written up as a feature within the STEP Journal which is circulated to its influential readership in print and will be carried online.

The roundtable process is as follows

  • Once booked, Think introduces sponsor to the STEP editorial team

  • STEP sends proof to the sponsor and then attendees of the roundtable for approval
  • The roundtable is published as a four-page feature in the agreed STEP Journal issue and published on the STEP website where the sponsor can use the article for marketing purposes
  • Think can amplify the reach of the article via other STEP and non-STEP channels if required – please ask for more details
