Dania Beach, FL – According to IEG, the leader in sponsorship consulting, “78% of companies say that participating in festivals is the most conducive environment for experiential sampling and has a significant, measurable impact on consumer sales of their product or service.” Dania Beach CRA Executive Director Jeremy Earle states, “By sponsoring the Dania Beach Arts and Seafood Celebration the last three years, these Companies gained the publicity and brand recognition they needed to compete in today’s competitive environment by insuring they make those important connections necessary for the future growth and success of their businesses.” Recognizing last year’s event as such an enormous success, with attendance nearly tripling in a year— sponsors from 2014 decided to return without hesitation for the 2015 Celebration. Vacation Villages, Stephens Distributing, Florida Power and Light, Quarterdeck, Waste Management, Florida Home Improvement, Davey Marine Center, Memorial Hospital, Truly Nolen, Fresh from Florida and Storm Tight Windows again proudly sponsor the Dania Beach Arts and Seafood Celebration’s third annual event. With such incredible benefits and effective exposure opportunity, new companies have now partnered with the City of Dania Beach and Dania Beach Community Redevelopment Agency for this award-winning event. Dania Beach Arts and Seafood Celebration warmly welcomes LaCroix and Healthy Home to the list of benefactors.

Attendance at the inaugural event in 2013 was a tremendous accomplishment with over 8,000 guests. The 2014 annual event was incredibly successful with over 20,000 attendees; the third annual 2015 event is anticipated to have continued growth. Sponsoring the Dania Beach Arts and Seafood Celebration has a proven benefit; business-to-business marketing, general marketing exposure, civic responsibility and employee engagement are just a few. “The benefits gained from this spectacular event are the reason we are sponsoring the Dania Beach Arts and Seafood Celebration for the third year in a row. In addition to having a great time, we are simultaneously supporting our wonderful community”, says Mervin Robinson from Truly Nolen. This premiere family event of 2015’s Spring season will create an environment where observational/demonstrable marketing is at its best, providing an unique and targeted way to advertise and reach customers, by driving purchases and consideration across age, gender and ethnicity.
