PARTNERING SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

#DEN Partnering Sponsorship Opportunitie

In only its 4th year, and with numerous events planned around the globe in 2021 & 2022, Dîner en Noir has become one of the coolest community events celebrating the local arts and business communities. Partnering with us gives you one of the best opportunities to meet and network with the city's thriving #DEN Members and their guests consisting of VIPs, small business owners, social media/cultural influencers and the city's growing, exciting and diverse arts & business development communities and leaders.  While partnering sponsorships are a great way to keep membership and tickets cost low, each partnering sponsor request will undergo a rigorous review to ensure that the proposed partnership falls in line with the mission of Dîner en Noir.  All partnering sponsors are required to give a direct benefit/discounted return to members/guests either during the event or after the purchase of a ticket/event registration.

Future sponsors should know that the actual seated dinner is just one part of Dîner en Noir equation! Our typical schedule is built around networking, drinks, food, live music and support of our local vendor partners.  In fact, most of our events consist of a 3-part program that includes an Aperitif Cocktail Party, seated dinner and Digestif After-Dîner Party.

As much a social & networking event centered around food, drinks, fashion and fun, our mission of promoting the local arts and business communities provides the backdrop! Extraordinary attendance aside, Dîner en Noir partnership program is a unique sponsorship opportunity as 60% of our attendees would be considered high net worth, high income & well-educated by any standard

Each year, Dîner en Noir launches a massive pre-event marketing campaign in its respective markets. In addition to conventional & social media advertising via iHeartRadio, RadioOne, Pandora & social media platforms,  these campaigns generate millions of valuable impressions that our partnering sponsors benefit directly from. The event day is just one part of the marketing and brand awareness benefits. As a Partnering Sponsor of a Dîner en Noir event, your company will receive endless brand recognition for months leading up to the event and your return on investment can be measured months after the event.

Dîner en Noir's mission is to the promote the city's arts and business communities by uniting friends and strangers alike from diverse backgrounds for a night of elegance, great food, arts, music, dancing and communion at our unique dining events in support of the arts and business communities.  A portion of the event’s profits goes toward supporting the local arts & small business development programs & organizations. Founded on a concept of inviting and partnering with local businesses to come together and promote each city's unique artistic talent & businesses, Dîner en Noir has become both, a networking opportunity for its guests, as well as a chic and elegant way to support the local community.
