Reasons to sponsor:

1 – Return on Investment. Everyone is looking at what they will get out of an event – which you should! Person to person is still the best way to build your business. Informing them about who you are and what you do creates leads that bring in new customers.

2 – Visual impact. Have you heard that people don’t start noticing something until they have seen it several times? It’s true, and sponsoring an event gets your logo out there several times or more depending on the level of sponsorship.

3 – Our attendance at last year’s ARToberFEST was over 20,000 in the 2 day period.
