Current Sponsorship Opportunities
Neck Wallet Lanyards
Overwhelmingly, attendees asked for lanyard/neck wallets for 2015, and we'd like to provide that for them. This is a one-sponsor item. The sponsor's logo and/or business name will be printed alongside RainbowCon's on the lanyard and wallet. Sponsor will also be thanked in our program, at the Welcome Event, and on the website.
Lanyard sponsorship: $1,500 PENDING
Every attendee is given a welcome bag filled with goodies from authors, publishers, sponsors, and RainbowCon itself at registration. These are reusable totes to help lower our impact on the environment. This is a one-sponsor item. The sponsor's logo and/or business name will be printed on the opposite side of the bags from RainbowCon's logo and name. Sponsor will also be thanked in our program, at the Welcome Event, and on the website.
Welcome Bag sponsorship: $1,500
Every attendee is given a con program at registration. This is a one-sponsor item. Sponsor will be given a full page ad inside the program as well as being thanked in the program, at the Welcome Event, and on the website.
Program sponsorship: $1,500
Something that sets RainbowCon apart from other cons is that we offer a Hospitality Suite. This is a dedicated space where attendees can come and pick up food and drink for no charge. This helps keep attendee costs down as well as helping to keep everyone fed and hydrated during the con. For 2015, we're asking sponsors to help support the cost of each day's worth of food and beverage. Any sponsor of the Hospitality Suite will have a sing placed on the table with their name, logo, and thanks from RainbowCon as well as a thank you in our program, at the Welcome Event, and on the website. There are four days available for sponsorship.
Thursday, $750 - Thank you to the Paranormal Romance Guild for sponsoring us!
Friday, $750 - Thank you to the Arshad Ahsanuddin for sponsoring us!
Saturday, $750 - Thank you to the Queer Sci-Fi Group for sponsoring us!
Ice Cream Social
During our closing ceremonies this year, we're hosting an ice cream social for attendees. This is a catered event by the hotel. This is a one-sponsor item. The sponsor's logo and/or business name will be printed on a sign and placed on the buffet table as well as be projected onto the large screen in the ballroom during the event. Sponsor will also be thanked in our program, at the Welcome Event, and on the website.
Ice Cream Social sponsorship: $1,500
Even if a sponsor cannot attend the con themselves, we are still happy to have you sponsor us! You do not have to attend to sponsor us. We have monetary sponsorship levels with different perks for sponsors who can't join us in 2017. Every dollar collected goes directly to the production of RainbowCon.
