Who can use this Sponsorship Agreement?
This sponsorship agreement for use by a company or organisation that finds a sponsor to provide sponsorship for an event.
What is this Sponsorship Agreement for?
The sponsorship agreement contains terms that are flexible enough for a wide range of sponsorship deals as well as a right wide range of events – sporting, fashion or something else.
What are the main issues?
The sponsor and the company organising the event will agree and set out the commitments of the sponsor plus the sponsor’s benefits and marketing rights while also detailing the nature of the event.
The agreement will require the sponsor to provide sample marketing and promotional materials for approval by the organiser and there may requirements and/or limits on the type of marketing and web coverage. Intellectual property rights will be dealt with as well.
Events require a lot of planning so the agreement will identify individuals with particular responsibilities and establish proper communication between the sponsor and the organiser so that changes that affect either party can be notified early and dealt with.
Confidentiality is another issue to be covered and neither sponsor nor organiser will want open-ended liability for problems that might arise.
The financial arrangements are of particular importance for the company and these need to be spelt out clearly.
