Shaping a partnership that works for your business
Sometimes it’s the simplest combination that makes the greatest impact. When your brand goes to market with a unique array of engaging events, the resulting partner program is greater than the sum of its parts. Here are just a few of the reasons our partners have chosen us:
High Brand Visibility
Naper Settlement gives you the opportunity to align with the community through an annual partnership to reach the right demographic for your brand. We learn about your goals and tailor a level of sponsorship to get the return on investment you want by promoting new products during an event weekend, through marketing, and annual visitors.
Our established relationships with local businesses, schools and the media help us maximize marketing exposure for our partners. Well-planned print advertising includes logos on event posters, annual sponsor thank-you banner, program maps, Summer/Winter guides, community mailings, member only magazine, events, linkable logos on website and logo placement on pole banners.
Facebook, twitter, YouTube, and e-blasts allow guests to be engaged.
In 2018, partnership provided the opportunity to get attention from a total of 18,937 special event guests while our website reached 156,380 annual visitors.
From Civil War reenactments to Naper Nights to Oktoberfest, our goal is to make learning fun. That’s what makes us a stand out attraction in the museum world. With 2,058 special event attendees, our partners have the chance to share in the fun with events and programming that run throughout the year.
For more than 50 years, our events, programs and exhibits have drawn crowds from the Midwest and all over the world. Our outdoor history museum reaches an audience that ranges from students to business leaders.
