Sponsor Guidelines

Event organizers please:

– upload your event to our event calendar at downeast.com/maine-events.

– consider using our ticketing platform, 207tix.com, to sell tickets to your event.

Down East is proud to sponsor events across Maine supporting a variety of non-profits, the arts, and key industries for the Pine Tree State. The majority of sponsorships are in-kind contributions from Down East providing media support to help promote events. The value of the media deliverables is equal to the sponsor level.

The media options include, and are not limited to, print, digital, social, and email. All media deliverables are a marketing mix best suited for the event. Please download our media kit to review our audience assets at downeast.com/advertise/

At the actual event, Down East may or may not be present with either a booth or staff. Down East does not have the resources to attend all events, but all efforts will be made to have a presence.

Down East has a ticketing platform, 207tix.com, that is free to use and all events that use the ticketing platform get additional exposure to our audiences by digital promotions.

Please submit your event to you online calendar at downeast.com/maine-events
