Brand New.

Mr Smith has been passed a copy of the "Commercial Opportunities" Pack for the SNP's 74th Annual National Conference in Perth, from 16-19th October 2008.

Amongst the "opportunities" being "sold" to have "your company or organisational logo displayed throughout the conference venue in highly visible locations" are:

Sponsorship of the Conference Marquee for £15,000;

Conference Lanyards for £5,000;

Carbon Offset (yes ... Carbon Offset) for £2,000;

Wi-Fi Access for £2,000;

Stair Risers for £1,500;

Cafe Area for £1,000;

Projection Wall for £750;

Recycling Bins for £675; and

A daily advert in the Conference Today news-sheet for £250 per day.

Mr Smith is surprised the SNP didn't think about sponsorship of some more fundamental items at the event, for example the Conference toilet facilities, which will definitely have a captive audience.
