Take your own advice and leverage the countless benefits to help grow your brand, build your reputation, and land more business. Here are some events that New York event planners should consider sponsoring.
New Venue Open Houses
Show your support for local New York City businesses by attending new venue open houses. You can be a sponsor and showcase your event planning business as you demonstrate your connection to the community's newest restaurant, nightclub, or event space. Introduce yourself and your company. Ask for a tour and offer to sponsor the open house. Get your name out there and build new, strategic relationships with exciting new venue hotspots at the same time!
New Business Ribbon-Cuttings
Another way to show your support for the community is by attending local ribbon cuttings. Welcome new companies, small businesses, and services by being a sponsor of their ribbon-cutting event. Maybe sponsor the snacks and drinks and help spread the word. Be a supporting force for any new brands in your community and build your own reputation as an events expert.
Charity and Non-Profit Events
Get involved with local charitable organizations and look for sponsorship opportunities you can leverage to give back. You can also position your event planning brand as a caring and supportive entity. Find causes you value personally and professionally. Then look for public sponsorship ways to demonstrate your support.

Whether it’s a sponsorship of an events trade show or conference or as an exhibitor or participant, your event planning business will benefit.
