The Nitty Gritty of Sponsorship

MAFFC 2017 has a number of sponsorship levels available to our sponsors. Our sponsors are offered marketing opportunities that target our audience via:

  • pre-event marketing (website links, & flyers)
  • weekend of event display (programs & banners)
  • weekend of event display at our social event "The Bash" Saturday May 14th (tables & screen display)
  • as well as opportunities for displays at the Cobb County Safety Village where our classroom sessions will be held Saturday May 13th and Sunday May 14th giving you more opportunity to interact with our attendees.

Firefighters from metro Atlanta and around the country will attend, and it will be a great opportunity to showcase your products and/or support of the fire service in this large metropolitan market.

The Sponsor Raffle:

MAFFC attendees have always enjoyed being a part of our raffle. Each sponsor that wishes to participate in the raffle will provide MAFFC with a raffle item or package equal to $100 in value. Each MAFFC attendee will be given a Raffle Card with each participating sponsor’s logo on it. Before each attendee can put their raffle card into the raffle bucket to be drawn, each attendee has to take their cards to each sponsor sometime during MAFFC prior to the raffle and have each sponsor mark their cards. At the Bash on Saturday night May 13th, each sponsor will then have the opportunity to come to the stage to say a few words and to draw the name for the winner of their raffle prize.

 

THIS YEAR'S SOCIAL EVENT:

This year’s social event will be the Firefighter’s Bash on the evening of Saturday, May 13th 2017. We offer our sponsors direct interaction with fire service clientele within a festive atmosphere. There will be no competing with class room time and waiting on classroom breaks to market your products. The sponsor access will be for the entire Bash time except during microphone activities of the guest speaker, sponsor spots, and any awards that may be given. Last year’s event was a resounding success with around 300 firefighters in attendance. This year’s bash will be held at the Atlanta Marriott Northwest at Galleria 200 Interstate North Parkway SE · Atlanta, Georgia 30339.

MAFFC is an event of the Metro Atlanta Fire Officer’s Association (MAFOA). MAFOA is a non-profit organization with 501(c) 3 status.
