Sponsorship Opportunities

You're Invited to Sponsor one of the planet's premier Earth Day events!

Businesses and organizations committed to Making Every Day Earth Day are invited to sponsor the MI Earth Day Fest. Exclusive sponsorships are available in several categories, each offering:

  • Recognition of your association with a premier green event, its high-profile supporters, and marketing/publicity creating millions
    of impressions
  • Exposure to an audience of tens of thousands of health- and
    eco-conscious consumers, eager to learn about your healthy,
    earth-friendly, and responsible products and services
  • Sales of your products or services at your high-visibility booth,
    plus the opportunity to develop prospect lists
  • Community Service to foster a more sustainable future and educate the public about eco-friendly and healthy alternatives
  • Networking to connect with others that share your vision and values, and to learn what is available to improve the sustainability of your organization

Leverage an Unmatched Marketing & Publicity Campaign

Media coverage of the MI Earth Day Fest is unparalleled for any green event in Michigan.

Past events received $100,000+ in donated advertising from media partners FOX2-TV, WWJ Newsradio 950, WNIC/Clear Channel, Radio Disney, The Oakland Press, Ann Arbor Family and Current magazine, to name just a few. 

In addition, a major publicity campaign resulted in dozens of features and interviews by local newspaper, magazine, TV and radio outlets, and hundreds of online news articles and press release postings. 

All told, the MI Earth Day Fest’s publicity efforts, along with email, web and other promotion by event sponsors, exhibitors and speakers, combined for millions of marketing impressions across metro Detroit and beyond.

FOX2, WNIC and other media partners are already signing on to promote this year's event, so we anticipate another banner year for media coverage.

Connect with Michigan’s Green and Wellness Consumers

The transition of green consumerism from fad to market fundamental is well underway. In virtually every industry, the green segment is expanding rapidly, despite the continuing economic recession. 

Green consumers, interested in eco-friendly and healthy living, have become a driving force behind how many companies do business. They are creating a new green economy based on 

responsibility and ecological sustainability. These consumers put $290 billion dollars into the economy last year and those numbers are growing fast. 

To find this market, look no further than the MI Earth Day Fest, one of the largest gatherings of green and wellness consumers on the planet!
