Behind The Numbers: Sponsorship’s Spending Decline

We recently released IEG’s 25th annual sponsorship spending review and forecast, delivering the historic, if unwelcome, news that sponsorship spending by North American companies declined in ’09. If you haven’t had a chance to read the report and see the specific numbers, click here. The fact that less was spent on sponsorship last year does not come as a huge shock to properties who have had to work much harder to close deals at fair market value, nor to sponsors who have been directed to make budget cuts.

Dr Pepper Snapple Group Gears Up College Basketball Promotion; Latin Music Sponsorship

Looking for a point of differentiation in an increasingly cluttered category, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, inc. is ramping up promotional activity in the first quarter of ’10 for at least two of its brands. For Sunkist, DPS will leverage partnerships with the Big 10 Conference, Big East Conference, Pac-10 and other college sports conferences with a national promotion featuring college athletic personality Dick Vitale.

Four Reasons CVBs Should Sponsor More and Advertise Less

Can I really tell CVBs to spend less on advertising? Am I brave enough to court the wrath of media entities and the hospitality and travel industries? OK, no. CVBs, tourism boards and destinations should spend fewer marketing dollars on one-off advertising and a la carte direct mail marketing. Instead, spend dollars on ads and direct mail campaigns as part of—or activation of—integrated sponsorship packages.  more
