2018 Sponsorship Opportunities

The importance of being able to help get your message out there in broad ways – to showcase your business through a wide variety of touchpoints and highlight your community focus, is well supported by the Nanaimo Heritage Festival.

With our expanded budget and new components, we’re excited to be significantly increasing our marketing and promotional efforts this year. The Nanaimo Heritage Festival provides sponsors with solid value by making available the broad range of touchpoints that the festival utilizes – which delivers your business a variety of benefits including:

  • Increased brand awareness and a spotlighted focus on your business
  • Customer loyalty through recognition of being a strong community supporter
  • Enhanced image and reputation that stimulates consumer purchasing and investment
  • Excellent bang-for-the-buck advertising options which are 100% tax deductible

We have identified a variety of ways to help spotlight and provide focuses that can serve your needs best. Download this year’s Sponsorship Opportunities PDF to find out more, or see below for many of the potential touchpoints available to help showcase and promote your business through our marketing and promotional channels.
