Why does Make Music Vancouver need your support?
Make Music Vancouver is a free event open to all, and we want to keep it free! All the people making it happen, from organizers to musicians, are volunteers donating their time and skills.
We are looking for sponsors to partner with us and provide the funds to cover our expenses, which include an advertising campaign, tent rental, security, supplies etc.
Why sponsor Make Music Vancouver?
Vancouverites love summer music fests, so being associated with one is a pretty good thing! And this music celebration is unique: not only is it free, but there’s something in it for everyone since it showcases a huge number of musical genres.
So in addition to just being a really nice thing to do, sponsoring Make Music Vancouver will provide you with a lot of positive exposure in the community.
Last year’s edition attracted 25,000 people – and this year is going to be bigger and better!
As a testament to last year’s success, the Gastown Business Improvement Association has kindly offered to once again pay the fees to have Water Street shut down to traffic.
We will also have a coordinated and powerful communication campaign including social media, traditional media, broadcasting, flyers etc. We have also successfully applied to two free advertising programs provided by the City of Vancouver: Transit Shelter advertising (posters at 10 transit shelters) and Vancouver Live Video Screen (a 10 second ad shown 144 times/day at the large outdoor video screens on Robson and Granville); both will run for the 3 weeks preceding the event.
We hope you’ll take a look at our Sponsorship_Package and consider partnering with Make Music Vancouver! We’d love to hear from you and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
