PARTNERSHIP SUPPORT OPPORTUNITIES Marketing/Brand Impressions: Shoe Guys Everyone loves the Shoe Guys. Tempting guests with their charm, good looks and a silver platter of luxury wine paired with a strappy shoe, the Shoe Guys are a highlight of every Wine Women and Shoes event. They help generate sales and excitement, theyâ€™ll happily explain why a strappy silver sandal goes well with a Sauvignon Blanc, or how a Cabernet Sauvignon pairs with a black stiletto pump while refreshing your glass with a twinkle in their eye. Besides the obvious fun of flirting with hundreds of attractive women at a sophisticated, upscale event, a Shoe Guy can provide excellent promotional opportunities for your business and more personal access to this unique demographic of attendees. The sponsor of the Shoe Guy shirts receives constant brand impressions from every attendee throughout the event. The opportunity to submit a Shoe Guy for consideration and placement is reserved for supporting partners so locate the best looking charming guy on your staff and strategically position him in the midst of beautiful female clients (you may want to charge him for the privilege).
PARTNERSHIP SUPPORT OPPORTUNITIES Marketing/Brand Impressions : Paparazzi Step & Repeat The Paparazzi Photo Shoot Step & Repeat is a multi-exposure visual branding opportunity. As 350 excited ladies arrive at the event dressed to the nines they are greeted by a paparazzi style photo shoot, which involves them stepping onto a stage with a large backdrop with YOUR name and logo on it, and having their photo taken from several angles. Links to these photos are the exclusive use of the Paparazzi partners (or partner if you wish to buy it out and be the exclusive logo on the backdrop banner) and NEWS. Attendees will be driven to your company’s Facebook page to view and receive a copy of their photos, in exchange for ‘liking’ your page. Build your database of followers and potential clients who will not only visit your site to see their photos, but will drive their friends there too by sharing the link with their friends. WWS attendees flock to the post event sites to comment and blog (and see their photo) about the experience.
PARTNERSHIP SUPPORT OPPORTUNITIES Marketing/Brand Impressions : Glamour Photo Shoot The Glamour Photo Shoot is also a multi-exposure visual branding opportunity, plus it allows the partner to display a signature luxury item as the photo set and back drop. This popular component of the event has typically been swooped up by a luxury auto dealership who brings in two of their cars (a fantasy car and one of their most luxurious models) and takes photos of attendees (often groups of friends) posing with the cars and the dealerships logo. As with the Paparazzi shoot, the ladies enjoy being photographed when they are dressed up and having fun with their friends. Links to these photos are the exclusive use of the Glamour Photo partner and NEWS. Attendees will be driven to your company’s Facebook page to view and receive a copy of their photos, in exchange for ‘liking’ your page. Build your database of followers and potential clients who will not only visit your site to see their photos, but will drive their friends there too by sharing the link with their friends. WWS attendees flock to the post event sites to comment and blog (and see their photo) about the experience.
PARTNERSHIP SUPPORT OPPORTUNITIES Marketing/Brand Impressions : Swag Bag Sponsor Festooned Swag Bags are delivered by the Shoe Guys to all attendees at the end of the Fashion Show. This is a high-energy feel-good moment at the event. Every woman loves presents â€“ especially those that are vibrantly presented and filled with relevant goodies. The Swag Bag partner supplies 350 custom bags with their logo imprinted on them. These bags provide long term impression opportunities long after the event is over. In addition to the logo impression on the bag the lucky partner of this marketing opportunity is encouraged to place a dynamic item or offer in the bag that will encourage attendees to do business with you! The more glorious the bag and offer placed within the bag the greater the impression you will make with this targeted audience. One way to get extra mileage from this investment is to attached logo imprinted luggage tags on the bags to be used on the ladiesâ€™ travel bags.
PARTNERSHIP SUPPORT OPPORTUNITIES Marketing/Brand Impressions : Water Wine Women and Shoes Napa Valley 2012 is a mid-summer mid-day event! Next to the Shoe Guys and Dessert water is the most appreciated item during the event. The water sponsor is the hero of the event, providing much appreciated cold refreshment during the outdoor, mid summer festivities. Depending on the weather up to a thousand bottles of water can be consumed by the 350 lovely attendees. All could be carrying water bottles wrapped in your logo! The water partner is encouraged to provide recycling signage and bins featuring your logo as well. One enterprising water partner at a WWS event even provided insulated bins and placed them strategically around the entire event. They provided waist aprons with water pockets for the Shoe Guys with their logo on it to make it easy for them to hand out water to thirsty and grateful customers. The Water partner saves the day!
PARTNERSHIP SUPPORT OPPORTUNITIES Marketing/Brand Impressions : Napkin, please! Wine and delectable finger food and desserts are offered at the event- ALL WITH A NAPKIN This is a great opportunity to get multiple impressions for a tag line, a new product or a special message. One clever Napkin, please! partner had their logo and tag line printed on the flip side of napkins that had funny expressions. This drew greater attention and became conversation pieces and a source of good humor. The Napkin, please! Partner will benefit greatly by using their creative imaginations to maximize exposure of this vital piece of real estate.
PARTNERSHIP SUPPORT OPPORTUNITIES Marketing/Brand Impressions : VIP Lanyard Wine Women and Shoes is a who’s who event- and inquisitive networking attendees want to know their sole sisters! Place your logo around the neck of every attendee at the event- where eyes will focus during introductions. Pretty landyards are a must so as not to clash with the carefully selected outfits worn to the event. VIP Lanyards will require particular class and differentiation. The Lanyard partner will benefit from the use of creativity when choosing and planning their lanyard. They could be a conversation piece or a fashion accessory that gets everyone’s attention. Brand your color, logo, message, Facebook address, 800 number…..
PARTNERSHIP SUPPORT OPPORTUNITIES Naming Rights: Best Shoe Contest If you want instant popularity and authority for your brand/business this is the marketing opportunity for you! Best Shoe Judges have power and authority at the event. They roam around the event evaluating and looking for the best shoes in several categories. This is a networking dream for the right sponsor. Shoes Judges get to wear a banner or apron identifying them. Plus, they get to address the entire audience on the Fashion Show stage and announce the winners and give awards. Creative categories include: prettiest pump; sexiest stiletto, fabulous flat and strappiest sandal. Hint: Male CEOâ€™s make great shoe judges and provide immeasurable fun and good community exposure for them. The winners are retrieved from the audience and escorted to the stage by the Shoe Guys. Bonus: Photos of awarding the Best Shoe winners are often a shoe-in for publicity coverage of the event.
PARTNERSHIP SUPPORT OPPORTUNITIES Marketing/Brand Impressions : Dessert! Lollicakes (a cupcake on a stick) are all the rage! They will be gorgeously displayed and distributed to all attendees by the Shoe Guys during the Fashion Show. What better way to endear someone with your brand than to offer a delectable dessert presented on a silver platter and delivered by a handsome Shoe Guy? The Dessert partner will have the exclusive right to attach their business card or promo piece to the Lollicakes and make a very sweet impression with each attendee. A ¼ page ad in the event program will also be offered to this partner. Start brainstorming ‘sweet’ metaphors now. (Lollicakes are provided by a local bakery)
PARTNERSHIP SUPPORT OPPORTUNITIES Naming Rights: Surprise Entertainment Have we got a surprise in store for the Napa Valley WWS event! Surely to go viral in the social media, the support partner willing to sign a nondisclosure agreement will benefit in numerous ways from having the naming rights of this wow factor entertainment! First, the “activity” must be kept a complete secret. Media will be alerted and on hand but they will not know what to expect. Second, the “activity” will be filmed and edited and the exclusive supporting partner and NEWS will have exclusive rights to post it on YouTube. This is all we can reveal without a signed non-disclosure. Suffice it to say it will be the talk of Napa Valley and the attendees for a very long time. A progressive brand, or a conservative brand who wants to attract a broader client base or align their image with a happening activity will benefit greatly by picking up the naming rights for this Napa Valley first. Selected staff from your company may be allowed to assist.
