Hundreds of thousands of events occur every year in the US, which means there are hundreds of thousands of opportunities for sponsorships. Over the past few years, hundreds of brands have shifted more and more focus (and spend) to experiential marketing. So then why is it still so difficult to get brands to sponsor your events? Two reasons:The Inaccessibility
As an event organizer, most of us have spent countless hours searching for the right person to talk to at big name brands like KIND Snacks, Lyft, Redbull, etc. You often just get pinged around from person to person or don’t get any response at all, which is unbelievably frustrating. Up until now, there hasn’t been an easy way to connect with the brands you want to sponsor your events.The Time-Suck
Finding sponsors takes time, between finding the right contact, setting up meetings, pitching your events, negotiating prices and contracts and coordinating logistics, there’s barely any time to plan the actual event. But finding sponsors for your events doesn’t have to take so much time.
Recess has created a platform, similar to how Airbnb works, to connect brands with event organizers. Here are a few ways Recess is providing solutions for the two biggest issues event organizers face:1. Increased Brand Reach
