Dear environmental organization,
Join us next year as a Sponsor or Exhibitor at the 14th annual Halton Eco Festival.
This one-day event will take place on Saturday, April 5, 2014 from 10 am to 5 pm at the Glen Abbey Community Centre on Third Line in Oakville. Booths can be set up on Friday.
The Halton Eco Festival is one of Ontario’s longest-running environmental fairs and one of the premiere events in our community each year. 2,700 visitors attended last spring.
The environmental movement, governmental initiatives, alternative healthcare and green businesses are featured at the Halton Eco Festival.
The Halton Eco Festival offers our visitors an interactive, informative and fun event that showcases a wide-range of eco-friendly products, services and campaigns to help people choose sustainable options for themselves and their families.
The Halton Eco Festival is an environmental fair for sustainable living, biodiversity and all things green!
We are promoting the concept of biodiversity because the years 2011 to 2020 have been declared to be the Decade of Biodiversity by the United Nations and we would like to make a significant contribution to its goals. Please contact the Halton Peel Biodiversity Network for more information.
THERE ARE MANY REASONS TO REGISTER AS A SPONSOR OR EXHIBITOR
It’s difficult finding new prospective clients and volunteers. Let the Halton Eco Festival deliver potential customers and supporters right to your booth at the Halton Eco Festival on April 5, 2014.
The Halton Eco Festival will also assist you in generating leads, demonstrating products and services, creating brand awareness, and raising your profile in the community.
Sell your products and/or services to people living in Canada’s most affluent region. Recruit them.
The event receives extensive media attention, generates a lot of positive energy and contributes immensely to the development of a greater environmental consciousness throughout Halton Region (Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville).
Organizers promote the event in a wide variety of ways. Last year’s poster was displayed in more than 200 store windows. All 160 Halton Region schools received copies and it was pinned up on library bulletin boards and seen in various government and medical offices. Advertisements are placed in local community newspapers and other publications.
All registered sponsors and exhibitors receive a free listing on our website and in our well distributed event newspaper and poster. People will discover you here before and after the event.
Network with other organizations in attendance; many new initiatives have emerged by getting connected with others at the Halton Eco Festival.
Take advantage of one of the best opportunities available locally to meet visitors who are looking for ways to live a more healthy life, want to reduce their environmental impact, are becoming more actively involved in defining their communities and aspire to live in a more sustainable world that greatly values biodiversity.
1. Live presentations of animals, birds of prey and reptiles are very popular with young families.
2. Guest speakers will discuss a variety of environmental issues relating to biodiversity at workshops convened throughout the day.
3. An interactive children’s eco zone will keep the kids busy and having fun.
4. People will relax at our food booth. We maintain an eco cafe with food and hot and cold beverages available for your consumption.
5. Halton Region distributes hundreds of free blue boxes and orange boxes to visitors.
6. There are door prizes, free giveaways and a silent auction of donated goods and services.
7. Students will enlist visitors to participate in our inventive Eco Jeopardy game.
8. Our event strives to be as waste-free as possible and last year’s environmental fair sent just one bag of garbage to the landfill. Thanks are extended again to volunteers with BurlingtonGreen.
