UKI Sponsorships and Partnerships

Building positive relationships is central to the success of Accenture's business. This philosophy naturally informs our sponsorship approach.

We partner with leading arts, sport and business organisations who share our ambitions to drive innovation across industries. Through collaboration and the sharing of expertise, we aim to make a positive impact on our partners' organisations and their goals, as well as bring to life Accenture business capabilities for our clients.

It is important that our partners reflect our brand values, allowing us to build relationships and create unique Accenture experiences that resonate with and excite our audiences.


Accenture is proud to sponsor British Triathlon. As Lead Partner of British Triathlon, we work hand in hand with the sport's world-class athletes and coaches to enhance performance through innovation and the creation of the Athlete Genome, and champion inclusion and diversity through our support of the inclusive Mixed Relay format.


Triathlon is growing in popularity and is a sport that fits perfectly with Accenture's commitment to gender equality and disability inclusion, as well as promoting health and wellbeing. Innovation sits at the heart of the partnership; we are using our expertise in transforming organisations and working closely with British Triathlon to improve elite triathlete performance. The Athlete Genome solution integrates performance and psychological data for the first time, aiming to make British Triathletes the best prepared athletes at the Tokyo 2020 start line.


Accenture is proud to be the National Theatre’s Partner for Innovation. Together, we’re fully committed to pushing boundaries across both the arts and industries through digital innovation and dynamic storytelling.

The National Theatre is a forward-thinking partner that puts digital at the centre of its ambitions. This collaboration offers us an unparalleled opportunity to showcase our digital and innovation capabilities to create unique, immersive theatrical experiences, attracting new, diverse audiences to the theatre.


With our support, the National Theatre has transformed the theatre experience for audience members who are D/deaf or hard of hearing. Using smart glasses technology, captions are projected in real time onto the glasses’ lenses, allowing theatre goers to see the dialogue in front of their eyes, from any seat in the auditorium, at any performance at the National Theatre.

This world-first solution offers hard of hearing patrons a significantly improved experience. Previously, off-stage scrolling captions were displayed on large LED screens, available only for a limited number of performances for each production.

The Smart Caption technology is an innovative solution that has significantly improved audience accessibility.


We collaborated with the National Theatre to deliver an innovative and unique front-of-house experience, inviting theatre goers to step inside a virtual musical performance.

All Kinds of Limbo featured boundary-pushing volumetric capture and communal virtual reality technology; a first for the National Theatre and supported their ambition to reach new audiences using digital innovation. The off-stage production was an intimate, immersive and life-size performance that merged technology and creativity.

Audiences experienced the performance using VR headsets, immersing themselves into a realistic and exciting 3D world, which included musicians, performers, lighting and set-design, all through the latest virtual reality technology. While watching the performance, the audience was encouraged to move around and explore the virtual space.


We are also a partner of the National Theatre’s Immersive Storytelling Studio; the Studio examines how Virtual Reality (VR), 360⁰ film, augmented reality and other emerging technologies can widen and enhance the National Theatre’s ambition to be a pioneer of dramatic storytelling. This collaboration allows us to work together on pioneering innovations and cutting-edge technologies, which help to tell powerful stories to both theatre-going and Accenture audiences.
