Sponsorship Programme Development, Management + Acquisition

When it comes to impactful sponsorship services, Revel knows no bounds. We have a deep understanding of how to achieve sponsorship success from years of experience working it from all angles – on behalf of rights holders for events and venues, as well as sponsoring organisations and brands.



Rights holders’ sponsorship services

Finding and securing sponsorship can make or break a project or event – but it’s not just about meeting budget demands, it’s also about creating the best packages or bespoke opportunities and attracting the right brands. We have over 30 years experience curating the right mix of sponsors, exposure, ROI and experiential ‘wow’ to make sponsorship at your event, project or venue truly stand out. We seek out organisations that bring high brand value, strong endorsement and the right level of financial support to the table.

Our team prides itself on a proven track record of successfully securing and managing major sponsorship deals, growing project income from multiple streams and working closely to targets. We strategically identify new opportunities to raise income and drive the success of a project. We cultivate prospects through original research and cold approaches, then manage the delivery of corporate and brand-driven sponsorship accounts to the highest standard, seamlessly anticipating and reacting to sponsor requirements to ensure mutual success for you and your sponsors.

Our goals always include the development of sponsorships that fully align with the rights holders’ event brand or campaign objectives. We design on-brand, cutting edge sponsorship with delegates, ticket holders, customers and partners at the forefront. The result – meaningful relationships are established, nurtured and usually last for years.

Sponsorship services for businesses and brands

We are well-versed when it comes to determining the best sponsorships and hospitality experiences to drive engagement with your business or brand. We understand every step of the process – we take the time to fully comprehend your organisation’s identity and objectives, then seamlessly integrate your mission into the right exposure-led or immersive experience. We tactfully navigate the sponsorship landscape with ease. In fact, we revel in every step along the way.

Our experience is rooted in securing and managing sponsorships and partnerships for organisations across a wide range of sectors. From running complex funding, investor and partnership campaigns for expanding start-ups and tech-led businesses; to promoting well-known lifestyle and luxury brands across hospitality, fashion, travel and motorsport – we’ve done it all!

Our services can be applied to a broad spectrum of projects and events. These include launches, conferencing, customer and partner initiatives, exhibitions and full marketing or sales-based campaigns.

ISLEXPO business festival sponsorship programme

Revel’s portfolio includes the development and management of sponsorship for ISLEXPO – an annual business festival that is supported through a combination of public and private funding. The event brand launched as a three year-series in 2016 with an allocation from public funds, a complex Government brief and great determination from our sponsorship team to make it work. Since then, sponsorship targets have been surpassed year-on-year resulting in a comprehensive, branded sponsorship programme and an impressive portfolio of over 25 sponsors and partners who are proud to align themselves with the ISLEXPO brand.

The ISLEXPO sponsorship programme has been designed to feature an enticing portfolio of sponsorship levels that enables organisation to choose between headline opportunities with brand exposure at the forefront, or more interactive experiences developed to showcase product and build new connections in a fun and engaging way. Sponsors include Barclays, KPMG, leading regional telecoms providers such as Manx Telecom and Sure, and innovative gaming platforms including Playtech and Annexio.

V&A and high-profile arts and charity projects

Our team has invaluable experience when it comes to developing and delivering high-profile sponsorship and funding programs for leading arts or charitable organisations. Our experience has been developed working with esteemed establishments including the V&A in London where members of our team brokered several of the museum’s highest-earning corporate partnerships including a multi-year deal.

Collaborations were formed to support a number of high profile exhibitions and exclusive red carpet galas including ‘Savage Beauty: Alexander McQueen’ – the V&A’s best-attended event ever; a glamorous showcase of Italian Fashion in collaboration with Vogue; and the ground-breaking ‘David Bowie Is’ retrospective exhibition. Driving the success of these projects, members of our team formed and managed partnerships with globally-celebrated brands such as Gucci, Bulgari, Agent Provocateur, Swarovski, American Express, Sennheiser, Revlon, Nespresso and Samsung.

Let’s connect

“This year’s ISLEXPO truly exceeded my expectations, both as an attendee and as a sponsor. From arrival drinks at the Founders’ Feast through to the close of the main day the event, was exceptionally well organised. There was such a buzz and it was a great opportunity to network, find out about plans from the Government and other business sectors. My colleagues from Sure were impressed too – our sponsored session was well-attended and facilitated. Overall I felt a strong sense of optimism during the two days.”
