If you are working in PR, media or communications, you are undoubtedly familiar with the world of advertising. You know how important promoting your business is for its financial success. However, you might be neglecting other forms of marketing that could be incredibly beneficial for your brand image.
Although the word has often been misused, sponsorships are still very relevant today. Some markets are investing huge budgets in events and generating increasing amount of incredibly high revenue. For instance, sports sponsorship generated 57 billion US dollars in 2020, and is expected to reach 89.6 billion by 2027.
