Corporate Sponsorship Today: What Works, What Doesn’t Workshops

FT. LAUDERDALE – In today’s tough marketplace, both arts groups and sponsors are smarter and savvier in how they secure and give away limited marketing dollars. Visibility no longer drives sponsorship. Every corporation wants to use sponsorship to build business that delivers results.

Broward County’s Cultural Division Cooperative Marketing Division will present a workshop to help navigate through this process.

The TWO workshops will be held on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at ArtServe, 1350 East Sunrise Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. The cost for each workshop is $25 in advance and $30 at the door. (If paying by check, please make payable to: The Cultural Foundation of Broward. Breakfast is included in the morning session and lunch is included in the afternoon session.)
