As National Presenting Sponsor, your company name is attached to all annual events, including the official event name, and is included in all marketing and public relations materials, i.e. "Grand National Championships Presented by Yamaha."

The Corporate Level entitles the sponsor to a greater association by giving logo placement on appropriate print ads and media placements annually. Opportunity for an annual activation meeting to enhance the marketing benefits through program planning.
