Meet some of HSMAI Region Europe sponsors and partners

HSMAI Region Europe are investing a lot in new markets in Europe, and this week and the coming weeks we will present to you some of our major sponsors who have been indispensable to achieve this development and growth in Europe both in terms of expertise and funds.

Avvio are renewing their partnership with HSMAI Region Europe

We have worked very closely with Avvio since we met them one and a half year ago. For more than a year ago they became our overall Gold Partner and we have worked very closed with them ever since. They are growing fast and so are we.

We at HSMAI Region Europe are very pleased with the collaboration we have had with Avvio, and the best thing is that they are very happy with us too – so much so that they just renewed the partnership to continue as one of our overall Gold Partner. The main focus will be on Digital Marketing and certification.

HSMAI Region Europe are also very pleased to introduce you to our new overall Gold Partner RateGain

HSMAI Region Europe will be working closely with RateGain on many of our events taking place across Europe throughout the year. We are looking forward to the collaboration and are excited to present RateGain as one of our overall Gold Partners.

We have many other sponsors for the many events we do, and it is great to see that they are renewing the contracts to continue their partnership with us. We are very much looking forward to continuing close collaboration with our partners and are excited to see the growth of HSMAI Region Europe continue.
