Each Sponsorship will include recognition on iowabeefexpo.com with a link to your website and recognition in respective levels in any print advertising before, during, and after the IBE. Each sponsorship will get a detailed IBE Facebook post that includes details about each company.
Each company can pick from the following list of what they would like to specifically sponsor. For example, if you want to be a Silver Sponsor, you can pick a $500 option and be a sponsor of a day or you can sponsor two judging contest awards. If you only want to donate at a Silver Level but want to sponsor a higher level option then you can pair with another Silver sponsor to cover that option. For example two companies at a Silver Sponsorship can pick the Sale Ring Sponsorship. Just keep in mind when you do this, you will be sharing the advertising benefits.
