Specsavers Surrey Youth Games 2019

Team Spelthorne are looking for sponsorship for the 2019 Specsavers Surrey Youth Games. The annual event is the largest youth sport festival in Surrey with around 2000 young people taking part. In the run up to the event, Spelthorne Borough Council offer young people the chance to take part in 7 weeks of coaching in a number of different sports. These sessions offer the young people the opportunity to try new sports or improve their existing skills. From these sessions, teams are chosen to represent the borough at the games on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 June 2019 at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford.

 

Team Spelthorne had a hugely successful games in 2019, celebrated winning several medals and finished an impressive third place in the medal table, for the third consecutive year. Sponsorship helped to enable over 350 training places in Spelthorne to be filled, benefitting hundreds of young people, aged 7-16, from participating in sport.

 

Spelthorne Borough Council will continue to subsidise the coaching sessions for Team Spelthorne in the lead up to the event and we are keen to continue to offer the sessions at no cost to the participants. Therefore, we are looking for three sponsors to provide £750 each to help cover the cost of the sessions. In return for this sponsorship, we can offer to print your logo on over 12,000 leaflets which go out to every school child in years 3-10 in Spelthorne. Additionally, we can put your logo on the Surrey Youth Games article in the Borough Bulletin which goes out to every house in Spelthorne and put a link to your website on the Spelthorne Borough Council website. Furthermore, we can print your logo onto the back of the Team Spelthorne T-Shirts which are worn by both the young people and coaches at the weekend event and often continue to be worn proudly after the games. You will also be invited to attend the competition weekend.

The Specsavers Surrey Youth Games is a fantastic opportunity for young people to be involved in sport in a fun and with your help, free, environment.

If you feel that you are able to help support Team Spelthorne in 2019 then I look forward to hearing from you. In order for us to uphold our offer of including your logo on our marketing material, I would be grateful if you can let me know Friday 8 February 2019. If you would like any further information about the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games or would like to discuss this opportunity then please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely

SPELTHORNE BUSINESS EXPO 2019

AN EXPO BUILT BY EXPERTS

Wednesday 13th March 2019 – Spelthorne Leisure Centre, Staines

This exhibition is a chance for local businesses to meet, connect and network with other small and large businesses in Staines and surrounding area.

There will be a schedule of presentations by Informed specialist speakers who will be offering practical hints and ideas to improve your business.

We are passionate about supporting local business growth and development, and as such, attendance to the event is free for visitors.

Should you attend Spelthorne Business Expo 2019?

This exhibition and conference will offer a wealth of benefits to your business and missing out on them may also mean missing out on great opportunities for growth.

This brand new event for 2019 will be an incredibly rewarding form of marketing, networking and a way of generating new business.

MEET AND CONNECT WITH POTENTIAL CLIENTS

Networking is a biggie, no matter which industry you’re in. Growing your audience means growing your business, and attending an exhibition helps with that. Standing out from the crowd and getting your voice heard can be challenging, and, if you’re trying to get new clients with just cold calling and emails, for example, you may find yourself being ignored.

Meeting someone face-to-face, however, it’s another matter. A trade show allows you to meet with a potential customer and connect with them and, while some people will buy your products during the exhibition, others won’t – but they may be a lot more responsive to your sales pitch once they know you.

CLOSE DEALS

While this is not always the case, you may also have the opportunity to sell to your target market during an exhibition or trade show. When you have a gathering of people already interested in the products and services you provide – and looking for great deals, which are often found in these types of events –, it’s easier to sell to them.

Compare that with emailing a Purchasing Manager or speaking to them on the phone, for example; they’re likely to have responsibilities to deal with and may not be as interested as they are when attending an exhibition in their field.

WITH OVER 60 LOCAL BUSINESSES EXHIBITING, THERE IS NO BETTER WAY TO NETWORK WITH SPELTHORNE BUSINESSES, LEADERS AND CUSTOMERS, WHY NOT JOIN US?
