Black Media Honors Sponsorship Deck PDF DOWNLOAD

Greetings,

We are excited about the idea of you joining us as one of our premier partners/sponsors. Paying homage to African American and other American minorities who have exemplified excellence in a industry that frames our culture is just the tip of the iceberg. We want you to experience this moment with us.

ABOUT BLACK MEDIA HONORS™️ 

The Black Media Honors™ is celebrating its Inaugural Awards season, building on the momentum African American and minority media professionals have gained over countless years. We proudly cap our award season with our Behind the Press Pre-Awards signature event – the Black Media Honors™ Gala to follow – which brings together many of the nation’s most influential creatives, communicators and aspiring communications students to celebrate the stellar work being produced across the nation. Additionally, at the evening’s end, there will be the Post-Honors Reception. 

This two-day celebration will open up with the “Behind the Press” networking extravaganza following with the awards gala on the next day. The Behind the Press will entail a variety of panelists, special guest speakers, fireside chat, small business market, and a VIP Essence of Excellence “Gifting Lounge”. Guests will have the opportunity to witness first-hand how our phenomenal panelists attained their level of success, overcame obstacles, broke through barriers, and continue to excel in their respective fields. Following the conference, the next day the awards ceremony will begin with a VIP Honoree cocktail reception, spectacular entertainment, and of course the recognition of 20+  networks, brands, women and men who have exemplified true magnificence in the fields of:

~Communications ~Television & Productions

~Digital & Tech ~Radio & Broadcast

~Podcast ~Literature & Publishing

Product Placement ($500)

Celebrities will explore your product and get to know it better, forging a personal connection with stars, influencers, media and the right higher income buyers.

Event Sponsors (in-kind)

Do you have a product or service that could support our event on the ceremony night? We’re looking for any service that aligns with our ethos from signage and merchandise, to drinks and entertainment! In exchange, we’ll promote you through our on-screen information, programme and social media on gala night.

Drinks Reception (from supply up to $1500)

It isn’t just our food menu that’s healthy and sustainable… our drink must be too. You can become a corporate sponsor for the whole drinks reception, or take part as a drinks supplier by sponsoring just one of the items. We’re looking for fine wines, vegan sparkling wines, beers and ales, water (filtered or bottled, but no plastic!) as well as traditional spirits with a conscience. Cheers!

Media Partner 

If you run a communications platform, news channel, blog or a publication of any kind and would like your writers and sponsored content to receive more exposure, then we can offer a content exchange. Write unique content about events together with sustainable and social impact stories that catch our eye, newsletter mentions, dedicated mailers, editorial coverage and/or social mentions. In exchange, put brand logos on our website, the event banner and inclusion in all external marketing activity.

Pre-Awards Behind the Press & Post-Awards Gala 

Venue Sponsor 

To ensure we build robust relationships with our sponsors, partners and judges, we hold (1) Pre-Awards Event to allow them to get to know each other.

A gifting suite is a private event that welcomes celebrities, media and VIP to an event. The suite will include the sponsorship and gifting products that are of interest to our guests in attendance. Photos of guests with your product(s) or brand will provide long-term marketing value and exposure to the participating business. What first started as gift bags for celebrities developed into what we now refer to as gifting suites.

The days leading up to most major awards shows we host our gifting suite catering to over 100 celebrities,  influencers, executives,  tastemakers  and the industry’s elite. We have sponsors with a variety of products ranging from high-end brands, gourmet desserts, beverages, gadgets and everything in between. 

WHY OUR GIFTING SUITE?

Every brand has their own reason for taking part in a gifting suite. Celebrity gifting suite has been proven to be an effective way to get your product directly into the hands of celebrities, influencers and media. When you want your product or service to gain exposure or awareness with influencers there is no better way to do so than Association and there is no method more proven to work than celebrity product placement. 

Celebrity sells! When you compare individual celebrity endorsement fees, the cost of advertising in a magazine/newspaper or other means of exposure, this is one of the most cost effective ways out there to expose your brand.

We believe in direct placement for each brand. This means you and the representatives of your company may actually attend our event and hand the gifts to the celebrities yourself if you choose to do so. This ensures that your products will actually go to the influencers and celebrities and you get that useful footage of the celebrities interacting with you to use for marketing purposes. Unlike many other companies, we provide incentives such as food and open bar for those that visit our suites. We also provide each of our sponsors the rights to all media they take at our event.

Additionally, we announce each celebrity that walks through the doors this ensures every sponsor knows exactly who they are speaking with. We thrive on long term relationships with our clients. Gifting suites are the first step in exploring where we can take companies, whether it be obtaining shelf space at major retailers, directing more traffic to your website, or getting your product featured and showcased in major media outlets.

WHAT MAKES CELEBRITIES AND INFLUENCERS WANT TO ATTEND?

Our company has been doing events for a few years now and we have a great reputation and personal relationship with a lot of these celebrities and their management, agents, or publicists. The celebrities can promote their upcoming projects, explore new business opportunities and stay on the cutting edge with new products/services. Also, we incorporate many charities and non-profits into our events, this enables the celebrities to gain great publicity supporting really amazing causes and companies. We create a safe, private and comfortable environment for the celebrities to network and explore the latest and greatest products and services on the market. We invite the nominees, presenters, and performers of the award show as well as celebrities and industry tastemakers that are current and trending in the media. We always have an eclectic array of celebrities and influencers.

HOW DO WE INVITE OUR INFLUENCERS?

We have an amazing public Relations team responsible for booking and securing celebrities for every event that have formed incredible relationships with celebrities and their management teams.

WHAT WILL BE MY MONETARY INVESTMENT?
