SPONSORSHIP

This challenge has the potential to have a huge, positive impact for those who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. To get to the starting line, the team are relying on the help of product and financial partners.  The opportunities for sponsors from a branding and awareness standpoint are enormous.  Please take a look at the benefits of becoming a partner and sponsor to the Indian Ocean Row 2018 team.

THE OPPORTUNITY

The Indian Ocean Row 2018 provides a fantastic opportunity for any organisation to boost its profile and reputation by aligning itself with an incredible cause and an important piece of research by Oxford Brookes University into Parkinson’s.

In addition, it also provides a unique opportunity to “row test” products and showcase them via video streaming.

The crew have engaged the services of Mave, a PR agency and THIRTEEN, a digital marketing agency to raise the profile of the challenge and of the sponsors.

The row and crew have already received a lot of positive media attention nationally – The Daily Telegraph, ITV and Radio 5 Live, as well as in the local media.  Their following on Facebook and Twitter is also steadily growing.

Discussions are also underway with TV networks about a documentary which will follow the men on their incredible journey.

This is just the start. 2017/2018 is about ramping up the media and social media efforts not only in the UK but globally. The crew will also be attending various boat shows, festivals and other key events around the country to promote the row.
