The Irish Sponsorship Awards celebrates a hugely important and growing industry in Ireland that uses strategic brand positioning and associations across different mediums to reach specific audiences.
Each one of our sponsors is availing of our diverse marketing and communications programs which delivers their company, its brand and their services to the key individuals that grow their business all year round.
This unique event allows our sponsors to demonstrate their position in market as well as showing support of the companies and individuals who drive this immensely necessary industry.
If you want to position your company as a leader in this field and improve your business relationships please get in touch with Kevin O’Driscoll:
The Irish Sponsorship Awards would not be possible without the valued support of our sponsors.
