A Rare Business Marketing Opportunity is coming to the Waterloo Region!
On September 18, 2012 the International Plowing Match and Rural Expo will open its doors to thousands of local residents, out of area businesspeople and tourists alike. This major event will attract world class plowing competitors from near and far and will highlight promote business interests to about 100 000 attendees over 5 consecutive days. The International Plowing Match was last held in the Waterloo region in 1995 and was one of the most successful on record. Businesses from across this region, this province and at the national level as well, participate as Corporate Sponsors and Partners to support this important community, business and educational event. In addition to the thousands of attendees, the IPM hosts an on-site RV park with 1800 recreational vehicles parked at the event for the full week.
Corporate Sponsorships and Partnerships exist to help businesses reach a vast rural and urban market that extends right across this province and beyond. These sponsorships provide support to ensure a high quality event that represents the best that Waterloo region agricultural and corporate interests have to offer. In addition, any remaining local funds from the 2012 IPM are directed to support community charitable organizations. Your contributions will support not only a wonderful marketing opportunity but community stewardship as well. In 1995 nearly $400 000 was provided to the community at the conclusion of that IPM. We hope to top that amount in 2012 with your support.
Sponsorships and partnerships can be made in the form of a cash donation, purchase of exhibitor space in that massive tent city and/or through ‘in-kind’ donations that support identified needs of the event organizing committees. In return for this contribution, sponsors/partners are recognized in promotional materials, signage throughout the event, and during media network promotions. Priority and prominent display of top level sponsors/partners is included on posters, web-site and other promotional materials. In addition, tickets packages are available at different sponsor levels as well as parking passes to provide to prospective clientel.
This is your opportunity to tap into an important market to enhance your business opportunities. The 2012 International Plowing Match in Waterloo is the 99th event and will attract a wide range of visitors. This event has only been to Waterloo twice in the past 50 years so you will not want to miss this chance to get involved and to be a part.
