PET EXPO SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
Section Sponsors: This gives you additional exposure and visibility at the various sectors of our show's floor plan. To be the exclusive sponsor of a particular section at the show there is one investment. To share your sponsorship with other companies there is an adjusted fee!
TITLE SPONSOR- Be the main sponsor of the Pet Expo. Your logo would be on all advertising, press releases, clickable logo on website which links viewers to your corporate website as well as signage in lobby and other areas of the show.
WORLD OF DOGS PROGRAM: Probably the most extensive presentation of the Dog World at any Pet Expo. Set in a large, carpeted arena-like setting this program is designed to entertain and educate the family on the many things you can do with your dog. Programs and entertainment includes obedience demonstrations, agility performances set to music, flyball, frisbee, a parade of breeds, drill team, match racing and much more. It's truly one of the highlights of the Pet Expo and attracts huge crowds with all family members enjoying the high energy performances.
RESCUES, SHELTERS, ADOPTION NETWORK: This area was specifically designed for all those organizations that cannot afford to participate but have a significant story to tell the pet owning public. In this area, all free space will be donated by "XYZ" Company. Your Company can adopt a specific organization or sponsor the whole area.
STAGE: The Stage or demonstration area includes our special attractions like Rainforest Reptiles, Elmwood Park Zoo, Bird Clubs, and other seminars and unique offerings at the show. The stage is used throughout the show with very little down time and the schedule can be amended to the sponsors needs for all shows.
PIGGYVILLA: Pigs and the Piggy people have created a one-of-a-kind section to educate the public about pot bellied pigs. It includes a designated area of piggy bed-rooms, large display and photo area, seminars and a piggy fashion show. This is unique to the Reading Show and actually brings a smile to everyone's face. Not just pig owners. At Long Island the LI Pot Bellied Pig Club sets up an educational area with interactive opportunities and the Pig Placement Network is at the Meadowlands and Philadelphia Pet Expos
PETTING ZOO: See animals of all kinds up close and personnel! Adults and Children can pet and feed the many animals including llamas, goats, miniature sheep, rabbits, baby chicks, chickens, turtles, hedgehog, pot-bellied pig and more! A popular exhibit for children and their parents! A nominal fee is currently charged for the Petting Zoo, sponsorship would enable us to offer free admission for all participants in the Petting Zoo.
Other Sponsorship Opportunities
Direct Mail and Targeted Mailings: Throughout the year we mail postcards and discount coupons to our extensive list of previous attendees. This mailing includes the logos of all the spon-sors of the show, but can also be a follow up mailing from a sponsor as an additional discount coupon offering. For these targeted mail-ings we also rent some of the pet publication mailing lists which can be used by you as a sponsor for various discount ticket or product marketing opportunities. Thanks to "XYZ" we are offering you the following discount at the Pet Expo.
Show Program: Sponsor opportunities in the show program would include a full color glossy cover wrap, inside and back covers, and banner recognition on internal pages of the program. This could also be partnered with signage and banners displayed at the show and possibly signage on program distribution tables at the show.
Family Nite: Friday evening or "Family Nite" has become a major success at the shows, we have had very good attendance numbers with all children 12 and under admitted "Free". It's a great way to kick off the show and a good opportunity for those large families on a budget to attend the show and enjoy the many activities and entertainment. In partnership with the Family Nite offering we send out postcards announcing this show kick-off evening at many local schools. The sponsor would also be mentioned on all pre-show mailings and have signage at the show.
Entrance Signs and Lawn Signs: We will be offering a limited number of Lawn signs to be displayed outside the facility with arrows leading to the show, and Welcome signs to be displayed in each entrance door and exit door.
Pet Photo Contest: A very popular addition to the show. Pet lovers of all ages can send in their photos or drop them off at the show office during the show. The photos are displayed in the lobby throughout the weekend for all to see. Following the show the photos are judged in various categories and prizes are awarded to the families who submitted the photos of their favorite pets. Generates a lot of public interest in the lobby.
Of course, we can tailor a sponsorship for your specific needs. This is a just a sample of the many opportunities our pet expos will offer the company with marketing needs.
