We are offering a sponsor the opportunity to partner with the most exciting new entertainment event in the world: the Edinburgh Comedy Festival.
This year we are joined by Radio 1, T4 and international press.
With a live audience of over one million - and exposure to many millions worldwide - this is an unprecedented opportunity to benefit from a close and integrated association with a truly world-class event.
Four companies; eight sites; four weeks; fifty theatres; two thousand staff; ten thousand performances; a million tickets... one sponsorship opportunity.
Raise brand awareness through sponsorship of the Edinburgh Comedy Festival.
The objective of the festival is to bring fans from the UK and internationally to Edinburgh for the world's largest celebration of live comedy.
From 2008 the four largest Fringe organisations began to work together, to combine all of their comedy programming under one banner - Edinburgh Comedy Festival.
The sponsor of the event will receive branding on all festival merchandise plus bespoke opportunities including retail, sampling, hospitality and onsite branded experiences.
Over the years numerous brands have supported the venues now drawn together under the umbrella of Edinburgh Comedy Festival - incl, though not restricted to:
Coors, Inbev, Nokia, RedBull, S&N, IF, Perrier, Paramount, Bellhaven.
Significant commercial opportunity for a drink sponsor across the numerous bars and outdoor areas of the festival.
Exciting opportunities for integration for technology companies and service providers with Bluetooth, SMS, navigators, exclusive downloadable content and sampling.
Artists and production ready to be turned into dedicated TV formats. Phenomenal interest from all major terrestrial TV and Radio station for 2009.
Ultimately Edinburgh Comedy Festival wants to also take the best comedy out of Edinburgh through Web and TV and tours.
