The Host Sponsors -The Outrigger Beach Resort. and
the Holiday Inn Gulfside. The Outrigger has been the cornerstone of the
event since its inception in the mid eighties. Both hotels provide sand
piles and water stocks, accommodations, and breakfast & lunch for the
competing Masters. Each year the host hotels alternate the hosting of the
amateur division competition as well as being the site of the awards presentation
on Sunday afternoon. This year the awards presentation and the amateur
divisions are at the Holiday Inn.
The Presenter of the Festival - The Greater Fort Myers Beach
Area Chamber of Commerce, owns the event name and provide administration
assistance to the producers in the form of office space, accounting, media
relations, general PR, volunteers to accept registrations, and facilitate
the Amateur division competition. They are also the key contacts for advance
tee shirt sales.
These two groups, as well as the producer /director The Sultans
Of Sand will be listed as well as any Event Sponsors, in all
media and promotional materials with the possible exception of the event
The minor support sponsors will be cited and credited where appropriate,
pending the level of involvement.
If one sponsor is willing to be THE sole event sponsor, they will
get all the benefit of exposure as THE event Sponsor.
(even if you are interested in only
a partial sponsorship, please contact us for details)
The more sponsors, the more of a split in cost to the sponsors,
but also diluted exposure.
What a Sponsor can expect:
Your logo carved in sand on site at the event. ($3,500.00 minimum donation
required for this aspect)
Exposure of brand name, and involvement in this well established (15th
annual) event in all media coverage.
Name branding on all printed materials such as posters and brochures.
Name branding on any promotional items that may be generated by the
event, except the event Tee Shirt. The event tee shirt is being reserved
for the current year event logo design alone, unless a sponsor were to
commit enough funds to cover the entire financial needs of the event ($10,500.00
The event enjoys widespread coverage in the media and in print. Over
30,000 people visit the event. The internet coverage is substantial, and
a sponsor can expect a full page dedicated to them on this event web site
Sponsors may erect a booth or tent on site to pass out info or promotional
items of their choosing (pending approval).
Sponsors may hang banners and signs that are pre approved.
The sponsor Logo created in sand on site will remain on display as long
as the sculptures themselves, which is usually up to a number of weeks
after the event.
Some sales are permitted on site. Due to the restrictions
in permitting for the City, County and Department of Natural Resources,
we (the event itself) will not be selling food or beverages. The
Host Hotels will have their usual F&B sales going on as part of their
regular daily business, but that is the extent of expected F&B
sales. No sales can be made of items that are already normally offered
for sale by the Host Hotels.
We will sell the event tee shirt and possibly any other event
related merchandise such as souvenirs. This is a family oriented event,
and though the demographics are broad, we want to impart a familial feel
to the show.
If you would like to discuss being involved in this event
or in the manufacture or sales of event- related merchandising, contact
us as soon as possible via the contact means listed on this page.
In addition to Event Sponsors, other sponsorship options
may be available, such as individual sponsorships of the individual Masters
competing. If this is done, it must go through the producers first, as
space and other perks are limited.
We are open to discussing ANY ideas you may have. Please feel
free to contact the producer:
