Sponsoring the New Forest Business Partnership brings you year-round benefits by highlighting your name as sponsor of our business support events or our weekly news and other communications, while a sponsorship package at the Brilliance in Business Awards gives you high profile participation in the largest and most prestigious annual business event in the New Forest.

By sponsoring our events you engage in corporate responsibility and enable us not only to recognise and reward talent but also make a huge difference to local businesses.

The traditional advertisement is becoming less effective and credible, which makes it difficult for businesses to sell their product and make their brand stand out. 

Sponsorship is a great marketing tool that helps you to broaden your competitive edge by improving your company’s image, prestige and credibility by supporting an event that your target market finds attractive.


Sponsorship Benefits

The sponsorship packages on offer range from headline sponsor of our Brilliance in Business Awards through to sponsoring an individual award category, or hospitality packages such as food and drinks sponsor.

All sponsors receive the following benefits as part of their package:

  • Reaching the right audience - an opportunity to communicate your message
  • Building brand awareness and recognition - great exposure to the New Forest business community
  • Media exposure - achieve a lot of beneficial publicity and extended visibility
  • Establishing new partnerships - an opportunity to meet new partners and establish new connections
  • Community involvement - be seen to be supporting the local community and helping its development
