  • Sponsorship Report - Is Official Dead?

    20 October 2015

    Multiple technological advances, changes in consumer behaviour and the ensuing marketing methodologies have transformed the sponsorship industry landscape.

    The traditional rights for cash sponsorship model has been disrupted, with brands not needing an official connection to fully exploit and command significant consumer mind share around an event.

    Yet, many major brands still see the value in signing official deals.

    • How the rise of Generation C has turned the traditional broadcast business model on its head
    • The creative opportunities unofficial sponsorship can present to engage fans in real-time
    • How to leverage privileges as an official sponsor by utilising the new arsenal of technologies available
