We need the support of the business community to show their support and solidarity as Kaiapoi reinvents itself and the Carnival's and Santa Parade's new format.
The KPA has been able to secure a small amount of funding from community funding grants but as always there are a lot of requests from other organisations with valid applications, to draw from the same small pool of money.
We are asking the business community to lend their support in creating an event that becomes an iconic Canterbury event, that brings day trippers into the Kaiapoi township and raises the media profile of Kaiapoi, whilst supporting our local residents and community groups for the betterment of all in Kaiapoi with two days of family orientated fun.
How can a business become involved as a sponsor?
We have lots of options available at varying sponsorship values and can tailor options to meet the levels of contribution and commitment to suit each business.
Because the event is a very different format from previous years, there are greater opportunities to promote businesses than ever before.
Combined with the digital age and proactive use of social media, sponsorship acknowledgement is greatly enhanced for all sponsors who have raised their hand in support of this event and demonstrated their commitment to the continuing journey of regenerating the Kaiapoi township.
Andrew Bakker, as our professional event manager has drawn upon his international experience to create a suite of sponsorship opportunities that will enhance the community commitment ethos of any business involved in the kaiapoi Carnival and Santa Parade.
