Sponsors and donors are vital in helping festivals, not-for-profit organizations, conferences and tradeshows to thrive. In today’s economic climate, sponsorship revenue is relied upon more than ever while competition for sponsorship has never been greater. A successful sponsor development program can set your opportunity apart from others, increase contributions and improve sponsor engagement.
At Groovy Grapes, we work closely with corporations, festival and conference organizers to design effective sponsorship strategies and sponsor appreciation programs centered on food and drink. From researching the target sponsor/donor audience to identifying sponsorship opportunities and assets, designing the program and helping you carry it out, we will ensure that your sponsorship strategy is directly tied to revenue generation.
Our experience with culinary-driven sponsor recruitment and development programs includes:
- Working with sponsor-driven organizations and event organizers to uncover opportunities for sponsorship
- Helping our clients to develop strong, revenue-generating sponsorship or donor programs
- Showing clients how to sponsor out events and programs, and how to develop sponsorship properties from existing assets
We are also experienced in designing and handling the details of custom-designed sponsor appreciation programs such as:
- Custom-designed sponsor appreciation or recruitment tastings
- Exclusive sponsor wine/beer/scotch clubs
- Special event programs to reward and thank key sponsors and donors
