Sponsorship Opportunities


Why become a sponsor

The Target conference is organized by Target – one of the largest public private partnerships in the Netherlands pursuing technological research in the field of complex information systems for Big Data in science, business and other areas of the public and private sectors. The conference that we organize each year brings together a diverse and inspired audience, and leading speakers from the world of data driven science and industry. Last year, more than 130 participants from Western Europe convened in Groningen to discuss the current challenges and future potential of Big Data. This year’s attendance is expected to be around 200 participants with a lot more international flavor. It is our goal to establish the Target conference as the largest Big Data conference at a regional and national level.

The Target conference offers your organization an excellent platform to

  • Increase company’s visibility
