ARRC2017: call for sponsors

10 May 2016

ARRC2017 partnersWe are very pleased to announce that sponsorship and partnership opportunities for our fifth Australian Romance Readers Convention are now available.

ARRC2017 will be held from Friday 24 to Sunday 26 February 2017 at Rydges Melbourne, a 4-star hotel in the heart of Melbourne’s theatre district. The convention will welcome award-winning authors Kylie Scott and Courtney Milan as keynote speakers (with one additional keynote speaker still to be confirmed). It will bring together romance readers, authors and publishers from across Australia and overseas, and will provide an opportunity to talk about all things romance fiction—particularly current trends and popular genres.

In addition to author panels the convention will feature fun social activities, an epic book-signing event and our annual Awards Dinner. Readers will look forward to a weekend immersed in everything romance fiction, meeting their favourite authors and connecting with readers who enjoy the same books they do.

More detailed information is provided in our summary document for partners, available to download here.

We are very pleased to say that we have already secured platinum sponsors for the convention: Booktopia and eXtasy Books will once again be supporting the event.

We are also offering a range of opportunities for those involved in the romance fiction industry to sponsor ARRC2017. Our sponsorship prospectus outlines details of sponsorship and promotional opportunities. This year we have again included a number of new options that we think will appeal to a wide range of industry organisations.

If you would like to receive a copy of the sponsorship prospectus, or discuss sponsorship opportunities, please contact us at, or fill in the expression of interest form here.
