GEARED 4 2020

Sponsorships by big business provide smaller businesses with edge, in the form of: credibility, visibility, various resources and financial support.  Needless to say, smaller businesses tend to often use and indeed over rely on sponsorships as a life line, without often demonstrating or providing their sponsors with a measurable ROI.  This, coupled with an ailing economy and the reputational risk associated with brand misalignment, has led to an increased reluctance by big business to sponsor creative businesses. The purpose of our discussion on Sponsorships is to clarify, demystify and have a frank conversation on what is taken into consideration when big business looks at a sponsorship proposals. 

During the event, you’ll discover

•The importance of demonstrating value add in these types of relationships.

• The pitfalls and challenges that big business face when deciding to sponsor an individual or SMME’s (for example, reviewing incomplete applications, brand misalignment, poor research, lack of impact).

• Sponsorship fatigue – especially during these tough economic times & more.
