High Visibility Sponsorships
See your business in the spotlight!
Sponsorship of our prestigious events provides many benefits:
Visitors to GMHA cannot fail to hear about you! Your company name will be everywhere, in the pre-event publicity, during the event including public address announcements, distribution of your literature and/or products and during the awards ceremonies, and after the event in GMHA, local and trade press.
Event sponsorship provides the opportunity to promote your company products and/or services in great detail. By the end of the event everyone will know who you are and what you offer.
By sponsoring a specific type of event you reach the people most relevant to your business. Choose a particular discipline, a local or sanctioned event, or a social event. It is win-win because you reach your target audience.
Through event sponsorship, you put your company literature straight into the hands and minds of potential customers. Direct contact with consumers enables you to build your database and expand your business.
The sponsorship commitment is dependent on the size and scope of each class or event:
Your business is the main sponsor. Your details will be ‘headline news’ in all information and literature, including press releases, distributed in association with the events.
Your business sponsors a portion of the event, or a specific section (i.e. a class or division). There may be multiple sponsors at this level for each event.
Details & Rates
Your sponsorship will be used to support and facilitate the running of our events. Sponsorship can come in various forms. Title sponsors are required to provide cash, but it is often possible to use goods and services as part of a package at the Presenting level.
Please note: Monies or goods in payment for sponsorship privileges are not tax deductible. We would be delighted to discuss the opportunities to donate with those wishing to claim tax deductions.
