Airbourne, the world’s biggest free seafront airshow, is getting ready to zoom back to the UK’s sunniest place this summer promising dynamic flying displays, thrilling arena attractions, evening concerts and its very own radio station – and offering an array of opportunities for companies to jump on board and raise their profile to hundreds of thousands of visitors.
Eastbourne International Airshow has already got off to a fantastic start with the official launch party last month securing a sponsor for the popular Red Arrow display, as well as several other exciting leads.
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight has confirmed to display on every day of Airbourne 2010 from 12-15 August as it commemorates its 70th anniversary, and with other displays including the impressive Eurofighter Typhoon and new Breitling sponsored Wingwalkers also set to entertain visitors this summer, the airshow promises plenty of exposure for companies interested in sponsoring the event.
Eastbourne Borough Council Cabinet Member for Tourism, Cllr Susan Morris said “Airbourne 2009 was bigger and better than ever before being the most visibly busy in the event’s history, but this year we already have a cracking line-up confirmed and are looking forward to building on last year’s success.
“From the fantastic assets confirmed to fly at Airbourne through to the Aviator Club hospitality marquee, Friends of Airbourne membership scheme and record-breaking souvenir programme; the event offers a wide range of sponsorship opportunities, big and small, and we would like to hear from anybody interested in supporting this major Eastbourne event while raising their company’s profile at the same time.”
This year airshow organisers Eastbourne Borough Council are again looking to work with the local business community to raise funds to continue staging this spectacular event.
Several local businesses from across the south east attended the launch party at Towner in February and have already promised repeat sponsorship deals for the 2010 event.
With sponsorship packages ranging from as little as £250 right up to the headline sponsor at £75k, with the chance for businesses to tailor make packages specific to their needs, Airbourne is renowned as a major international event with significant footfall and offers the platform for businesses to reach mass crowds, both visitors and residents, over the four day event.
Securing a record 25 sponsors in 2009 including TravelInsured.co.uk, Eastbourne Borough Council are looking to attract even more sponsors in 2010 and would be interested to speak to companies about the best ways for their business to benefit from the event.
