Sponsorship of City of Rochester Events

  • PUBLIC RELATIONS: City-wide press releases, mayoral press events, campaign kick-offs, ribbon cuttings, on-air opportunities with local television and radio.
  • PRINT: City of Rochester print materials may include posters, fliers, postcards and banners.  Items are distributed to public libraries, various neighborhood offices and recreation centers, city hall, the Rochester Public Market and other locations in Rochester. 
  • LIVE EVENT OPPORTUNITIES: May include booth display, corporate logo and/or banner presence, VIP hospitality, test marketing products, surveying attendees and opportunities to host or emcee event.
  • CITY WEBSITE: All special events will be featured on the City's Facebook page, website and event calendar at www.cityofrochester.gov and will contain sponsor name. logo and link to sponsor website.  The Rochester Events Network will feature detailed event information, talent, photos, sponsor acknowledgements, link to sponsor website and more.
