Over the past few years, the Syracuse area has become known as an ideal sporting and hobby destination, hosting major events such as the Ironman 70.3 Syracuse, the Syracuse Nationals and the American Quilters Society Quilt Week. Quite often these events come to Syracuse looking for sponsors and advertisers on the local level.
While the vibrant local sporting community is tremendous in drawing and supporting each such event it is often difficult for the individual planners to connect with the wide array of area sponsors. As one of our local partners we would like to extend to you a list of upcoming sporting and hobby events that MAY be looking for a local sponsor in the coming year. All of these events bring in participants and fans from across the region as well as the nation and have a tremendous reach in terms of advertising potential.
Each event is listed below along with a short detailed explanation and website information. If anyone is interested in learning more about sponsorship opportunities with one or more of these groups please call Visit Syracuse President David Holder at (315) 470-1911.
