There are many opportunities for forward-thinking tech, finance, manufacturing and creative industries and businesses to help magnify their reach and tell the story of Essex 2020.

This will be a high profile, year-long programme with an expected total audience of 500,000+ people amplified by media visibility of many times that. As well as increased PR and branding opportunities, our sponsors workforce can participate and gain professional development from events; receive invitations to VIP events and contribute to podcasts, videos and more.

We can offer a range of bespoke sponsorship opportunities, including help in kind (such as venues, transport or printing), for organisations with an interest in:

  • Media: sponsors will help us tell the story of Essex 2020 through podcast and film. Showcasing cutting-edge animation, documentary, contemporary video techniques and historical footage to capture the past, present and future of science and creativity in Essex.
  • Education: sponsors will join organisations such as The  Institute of Physics, Arts Council England and UK Space Agency to enable mass participation from schools and colleges through competitions and experiences; and engage children across Essex in hands-on STEAM learning activities.
  • Commissioning: sponsors will support the commissioning of new public art experiences, speaking events with global leaders in science and technology, travelling technology-driven performances, installations and projects to match-fund commitments from the Arts Council England, Essex Cultural Diversity Fund, Innovate UK, Chelmsford Cultural Trust, University of Essex and more.
  • Legacy: help us continue championing STEAM learning and local projects well beyond 2020 – sponsors to our Legacy fund will help ensure the continuation of our Essex-wide collaborative Hubs.
