Sponsorship – POA  

Eventsbase has sponsorship opportunities that offer greater creativity for your advertising pound.

Benefit by association, sponsor a feature or destination focus.


Inserts – POA

The greatest benefit of using stitched or loose inserts is visibility. The incremental cost of increasing your promotional literature print run will be offset by the added value to your campaign.


Venue Focus – POA

Readers will associate your focus with premium products and services. Perfect for high impact campaigns and launches.

Your focus can be priced on 4pp, 6pp or 8pp front cover section. Shot by our photographer and written by our journalists.


Supplements – POA

A stand alone supplement is a demonstration of critical thinking and reflects on you as a reliable source of information.

Printed in multiples of 8pp, on high quality stock they can be part of the magazine or inserted loosely. Additional copies can be run off for promotional purposes.
