Sponsorships exist to service the needs of different parties in a mutually beneficial agreement. It can be one of the most successful marketing activations for business when it's done well. At the same time, sponsorships create sustainable communities by positively underpinning the social, economic and environmental impacts.
There is no guarantee you will find a match but we hope you do and your event will be receiving more exposure than ever before by listing with us – especially if you pay for the service. The higher your membership, the more you will be promoted in the emails which are sent to our prospective sponsors. We know we are able to generate great exposure and ask that you help to in promoting this great community initiative. While we can't know for sure the success rate of sponsorships beyond this site, we know that hundreds of introductions are happening every month. Of course, if you would like to share photos or videos or write a few words about a great connection you have made through this site, we would love to promote it as a testimonial for future Events and Sponsors.
We offer a free service for Events but recommend you upgrade to receive a priority listing. We also offer a free service for sponsors with event opportunities, tools and template to help you promote your brand effectively in the sponsorship space.
As EventSponsors is an online sponsorship marketplace we hope that we can service as many Events and Sponsors as possible through this site. Our primary purpose is to generate targeted exposure of sponsorship opportunities but we also offer sponsorship best practice through our weekly blog on the homepage.
Absolutely, as an Event or Sponsor, you may advertise either on the website or on the weekly blogs. Simply contact email@example.com for further information or to book a schedule.
It should only take a couple of minutes to register. Simply Sign up or sign in and complete the required fields.
Yes, once you are registered you can keep adding Events.
There are some required fields which you need to complete. There are others that are optional but you definitely improve your chances of connecting with sponsors if you provide quality detail about your event.
Our advice would be to think creatively about the leveraging opportunities. Sponsors want to engage with the people that attend your event. The more you can help them do this the better. Sponsors also want to measure their effectiveness – the more you can provide measurable outcomes the better your chances in attracting sponsors.
Absolutely, in fact it's really important that you do this. You should register on EventSponsors but also create customised proposals because while we provide targeted introductions, you still have to create a compelling reason for the sponsors to want to support your event. A great starting place is to think about how you can enhance your event participants experience and offer this as experience an opportunity for the sponsor to own.
It's up to you but here's something to think about:
Free: It's a great introduction to what's possible with the site
Featured: This is easily the most popular way to attract sponsors
Premium: Used by agencies and larger events
Assisted: If you don't have much time before the Event and need to attract interest quickly, we give you top billing and email your event to potential sponsors
Yes, simply log in and through your account you can make as many changes as you would like to your event listing.
As soon as you've completed the required fields.
We cannot facilitate contact with a sponsor until they click on the Connect button.
We provide sponsor details only after they have hit the connect button. You will then receive notification in your private communication portal which allows you to communicate with the interested sponsor.
It's entirely your choice based on your specific needs, but to help you consider this:
Annual option: The best choice if your Event is annual because it works out cheaper than monthly and you are promoted year round catching sponsors when they are deciding budgets.
Monthly option is ideal for one-off events. A recurring monthly payment is also easy to manage.
We have a strong network of media, community and corporate contacts. We also use email, social media, keynote speaking and advertising to attract sponsors to the site.
Definitely not. This is what sets us apart from all our competitors, we don't charge commissions.
Simply input the code once you select a package option in the checkout process (limited to one promotion code per event).
Simply click the "Contact Event" button. We then give you the event-holder's contact details so you can send them an email.
No, Events are only able to communicate through private email after you have initiated contact using their Event contact detail information provided.
Once you join you can save multiple searches. Results matching your criteria will be sent to you if you decide on this option.
Just send a message providing constructive feedback and signal you are no longer investigating the opportunity.
This is how the marketplace works. We need to make it free for sponsors because we want to make it as easy as possible for sponsors to recieve targeted and relevant opportunities. When you make contact with an Event-holder to initiate further discussion, we know we've done our job in creating an efficient sponsorship sourcing solution.
