1. MAIN SPONSORS
As a MAIN SPONSOR of DEMOCRACY ALIVE, you will get ‘premium brand visibility’ and recognition as a ‘main sponsor’ of the festival. This means that your logo will be featured - and highlighted - in various online marketing materials leading up to the festival, during the festival, and after the festival (on the festival website, in social media, etc.). Moreover, the ‘main sponsors’ will have their logo (large size and spotlighted) on festival materials, such as physical banners, placed at key locations in the festival square, on festival grounds, as well as on the main stage.
For the MAIN SPONSORS of DEMOCRACY ALIVE, the hosts of the festival (European Movement International and Alliance for Democracy) will facilitate premium contact with relevant high-level stakeholders that are invited to the festival by the hosts. Prior to the event, the festival hosts can provide an overview of high-level stakeholders that will be attending DEMOCRACY ALIVE. Importantly, however, organisers will be arranging their own events and will in some cases be inviting their own - sometimes high-level - stakeholders to the festival. Considering this, the festival hosts will make efforts to facilitate contact, but contact cannot be guaranteed in all cases.
As a MAIN SPONSOR of DEMOCRACY ALIVE, you will be given special VIP passes that will grant access to all events and receptions hosted by the European Movement International and the Alliance for Democracy (which will be hosting several of the main high-level events at DEMOCRACY ALIVE). Moreover, where relevant, seats will be reserved upon request. Importantly, however, organisers will be arranging their own events, which in some cases may be private (e.g. internal events, meetings, discussions), and will, therefore, have control over attendees. As a sponsor, should there be a wish to participate in an organiser's private event, the festival hosts can guarantee to make efforts to facilitate access; though access cannot be guaranteed in all cases.
At DEMOCRACY ALIVE, the festival hosts (European Movement International and Alliance for Democracy) are creating a festival square where sponsors and organisers can organise innovative and inspiring events and activities pertaining to their brand, as well as on issues that they care most about. Festival hosts will make sure that basic needs are in place upon arrival, such as tents, audio equipment, tables, chairs (etc.). Moreover, the hosts are working with the local business community in Texel and can facilitate contact with local venues (cafes, hotels, restaurants, cinemas) if these venues are more appropriate for the kind of content sponsors would be interested in providing. On the festival square, sponsors and organisers will have designated locations for activities and some locations are better placed than others. MAIN SPONSORS will have priority access to key locations.
As a MAIN SPONSOR of DEMOCRACY ALIVE, you will be offered the possibility to actively participate in activities organised by the festival hosts (European Movement International and Alliance for Democracy), such as panels, debates, talks etc. as the ‘business voice’ if that is wanted and relevant. Importantly, however, organisers will be arranging their own activities and will, therefore, have control over participants. As a sponsor, should there be a wish to participate in an organiser's activity, the festival hosts can make efforts to facilitate contact; however, active participation cannot be guaranteed in all cases.
The MAIN SPONSORS of DEMOCRACY ALIVE will be invited to a high-level dinner organised by the festival hosts (European Movement International and Alliance for Democracy). More information on this will be provided at a later point.
