(Give a good overview of what this event is about and how being involved will benefit the sponsor.
At this point in the proposal, your appeal is basically emotional. You want your readers to be able
to visualize the event and how their involvement will look and feel. Use emotional wording with
strong adjectives. As a general rule, two-thirds of this page should be devoted to visualizing the
event, and the remainder to visualizing the sponsorship.)
SAMPLE: In November 1999, the Darling Harbor Convention Centre will throw open its doors and
welcome 65,000 enthusiastic fishermen and women to the Sydney International Fishing Expo.
Visitors will be treated to over 100 demonstrations and activities for all types and levels of
experience. They will enjoy over 450 exhibitors from Australia and overseas and will have the
opportunity to try out their gear on the largest indoor trout lake in the world. And, as heavy
consumers of fishing tourism, they will flock to our brand new Fishing Adventures area and will be
able to even book their trips on-site.
Approximately 40 percent of Australian men fish at least once a year, with a quarter of them fishing
at least once a month. These men love their sport and make sure they are equipped for it to be as
successful as possible. On average, these fishermen and women spend over $150 each at the Expo.
Where does Australiana fit in? Based upon our visitor survey last year, over 65 percent of
fishermen fly to a fishing destination at least once every two years, with the average size of their
group being 4-6. This is broken down very evenly between overseas and rural Australian
destinations, allowing Australiana to showcase not only major international destinations, but your
extensive regional network as well.
As a major sponsor of the Sydney International Fishing Expo and naming rights sponsor to our new
travel area, Australiana Fishing Adventures, complete with exclusive on-site booking facilities,
Australiana will enjoy both a major profile with this lucrative market. You will also have the
platform to create meaningful promotions, cementing the relationship with these consumers, tourist
boards, adventure travel specialists, and travel agents.
