Ipswich Borough Council’s Events Programme is supported by a number of sponsorship agreements that support the funding of the programme through financial input and / or provided services. In return sponsors are provided with the opportunity to raise their own profile promoting offers and initiatives.
Sponsorship Liaison and Sales is a role that is vital to co-ordinating these agreements and presenting the opportunities to prospective partners.
LJN Consulting has provided this service to the Council over a 3 year period for 3 days per week and has established strong relationships with sponsors on behalf of the programme contributing significantly to the reduction in subsidy of the events programme by the Council.
