Add Some "WOW" to Sponsor Communications
Sports event marketing veteran Tom Stipes discusses the critical importance of consistent and creative communications with sponsors. The art of adding dynamic content to both fulfillment reports and proposals is a challenge to event sponsorship sales personnel and many times can mean the difference between a sale and a "maybe next time". During this session, Stipes illustrates several tactics for creating innovative, yet affordable presentations that fully demonstrate the event's best marketing benefits.
Corporate Sponsorship: A Discussion of In-House vs. Out-of-House Approaches
This session will provide a look at sponsorship sales at the collegiate level by comparing and contrasting the approaches of in-house corporate sponsorship operations with the outsourced multi- media rights approach. This presentation will draw from the experience of an in-house sponsorship format through a couple of NACMA professionals in this situation and an outsourced approach with ISP Sports. While this presentation will be set up with a significant amount of time allowed for questions, the goal is to provide a look at the increasingly important stream of revenue that can be derived from sponsorship and look at the dynamics of each format. Special thanks to Brad Edmondson (James Madison), Trip Durham (Elon), Troy Hartmann (Miami [OH]) and Dan DeVos (UNC Charlotte).
