Rotorua X is making a real impact on the Rotorua economy helping create a vibrant and energetic business and charitable community.  We would be thrilled if your organisation decided to partner with us to help inspire and provide leadership to the Rotorua business community.

We have a range of sponsorship packages available to suit organisations and budgets of any size and shape.  At Rotorua X, we are a flexible bunch and we will work with you to explore how we can best support your sponsorship goals and objectives.

By becoming a sponsor you become part of the great Rotorua X fraternity and get all the kudos from being associated with such an innovative group.  The icing on the cake is the added exposure your organisation will get on Rotorua X e-newsletters, websites, event notices and the like.

As all businesses we do prefer sponsorship to be paid up front, but understand the constraints of cash flow on smaller organisations.  We offer a ten-month payment plan for all sponsorship packages as well as a discount for multiple year agreements.

Check out the 2018 Rotorua X Pitch Deck with all the benefits and sponsorship packages or contact us today, so we can develop a sponsorship package to suit you.
