Invitation to Sponsor the 2012 Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Celebration
Our Pride Event has become one of the most exciting gay pride festivals in the world. The event began 27 years ago as a small gathering in the park and has grown into a nationally and internationally recognized festival, bringing more than 100,000 people into our downtown Long Beach event site each year.
Every year a variety of local and national corporations, merchants and individuals contribute to the success of Pride and can share the credit for over 27 years of successful Pride events. With the support of amazing sponsors and volunteers, Long Beach Pride is one of the world’s premier Pride events.
As L.B.L.G.P., Inc.’s primary event, the Parade & Festival acts as an economic engine for the community, annually generating approximately $10 million of net direct spending to Long Beach and over $20 million to the regional economy, according to a recent Festival Economic Impact Study Report. Partner with this exceptional event and become a sponsor for our 28th Anniversary. We have a lot of great plans for 2011 and are excited to offer you excellent exposure to our LGBT community.
The LGBT community can be summed up as trendsetters, loyal, affluent and receptive to companies who talk directly to them and support companies who support them. The North American LGBT community had an estimated buying power of $610 billion just a couple of years ago! This is a tremendous opportunity for you to reach that market and make an impact. Join us and support the LGBT community by Sponsoring Pride 2011.
We welcome the opportunity to discuss how you and your company can be part of this exciting annual pride festival. There are several different sponsorship levels as well as unique marketing opportunities available to support Long Beach Pride. We are available to discuss and custom tailor a sponsorship package to fit your interests.
