COFFEE FEST SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES HAVE BEEN DESIGNED WITH YOUR GOALS IN MIND

Coffee Fest offers sponsorship opportunities at many price points targeted to help you build brand awareness, increase sampling distribution, connect you with attendees and provide an opportunity to celebrate your company's contribution to the coffee and tea industry. Successful sponsorship occurs when you interact with your target customer when they are out doing whatever it is they like to do. When done successfully and with some foresight and planning, your sponsorship will serve to alter your target’s buying decisions and position you at the forefront next time they invest in what it is your company provides.

This opportunity is all about direct interaction with your target customer from an auxiliary, secondary location to your booth on the show floor. Hand out samples or literature as attendees travel throughout the Convention Center. This offers a chance for a one-on-one moment away from your booth and the exhibition floor to interact with your target customers.

  • Locations are pre-determined and include: Registration, Exhibition Entry and Classrooms.
  • Limited to one sponsor per designated area.
  • Single Show Investment: $3,500.

There's just one official show bag provided to attendees upon their arrival at Coffee Fest. These bags can proudly display your company's name/logo. The attendee bag sponsorship means your name travels everywhere - in the convention center, hotels, restaurants, and more - both during and after the show.

And they are reusable for the attendees to use for grocery runs etc. back at their home.

Quantity of bags is based on anticipated attendance; approximately 5,000.

Show Requirement: Three show minimum.

Annual Investment: $10,000.
