Sponsorship Opportunities and Benefits
We are exploding in popularity, and we want you to join the fun. Trust us, the return on investment is nothing short of spectacular. .
The Hudson Valley Wine & Food Fest draws attendance from all of eastern New York State, including the metropolitan areas of Albany and New York City as well as western Connecticut (Danbury & Hartford), northern New Jersey and western Massachusetts.
The educated, discerning consumer that attends our event provides a multitude of marketing opportunities for Sponsors.
Take advantage of the Hudson Valley Wine & Food Fest to:
- Launch a new product or new model with sampling, demonstrations on our Demo Stage or unveiling event
- Reward clients with a VIP Tent, special dinner or wine tasting
- Reward employees and clients with Fest tickets
- Expose your brand with signage and co-branded advertising before and during the event
Our PR strategy is solid. We invest in a relationship with an outside PR firm, who works collaboratively with our own team, to maximize success for the event, and to deliver top-notch results to our sponsors. We have had countless articles written about the event as a result of our relationships with journalists; we believe advertising is important as well, of course – but feel that having editorial written about our event really shares the story, a win for everyone involved.
Our analytics reports show that website traffic doubled over last year, with almost 35,000 visitors to our website in the month of August alone. Sponsors who are listed on our website, particularly those at levels which allow us to hyperlink to their sites, can expect their own audiences to grow as a result of their involvement with our event.
