Marketing and Promotion

Feature advertising in Oakville, Halton, Hamilton and the western GTA ensures our sponsors are highlighted during the weeks leading up to the event. Advertisements are found in the printed and online versions of the Oakville Beaver, Burlington Post, Milton Canadian Champion, Hamilton Spectator, Home Digest, and City Parent with additional support provided with brochures and lawn signs strategically placed throughout Oakville. Oakville town exposure was present in the 6 billboards around town and further exposure through TV Cogeco who promoted the event, before, during and after. Social media is an important component in our advertising mix and our increased advertising on social media recorded increases of 300—400% for the total number of people reached.
