END OF YEAR GALA SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

        Join the Korean Society of Maryland as we mark 2016 at a Gala event with over 600 attendees. With our comprehensive knowledge of the Washington DC metro area and the experience of working with Asian and Asian American leaders, we are excited to host the 2016 End of Year Gala, a yearly tradition. Under the amazing leadership of President Seong Baik the Korean Society of Maryland has had a tremendous year of service and commitment to the Korean population in Maryland. This years’ Korean Festival had a record breaking attendance of over 17,000 and broke the Centennial Park attendance record for any event.  Our End of Year Gala event on December 18, 2016 Sunday from 6pm – 11pm at Martin’s West in the Baltimore/Ellicott City area will be a memorable night of fun. Attendees will enjoy dinner, dancing, entertainment, traditional performances and games and more. Our 44th Annual End of Year Gala will be a special opportunity for you to enhance your identity to a large business and consumer minded audience. Sponsorship opportunities are available.

WHY SPONSOR US?

       Korean Americans have the highest purchasing power in the US and are one of the fastest growing ethnic groups in the US. With a total of 120 billion dollars in annual buying power in the United States, its growth in the DC metro area is one of the largest portions of that purchasing power. In addition, the projected increase from 2014 to 2050 in the Korean American population is expected to be over 120%. Couple that with the ratio of the highest proportion of college graduates of any race or ethnic group and it becomes clear why it is important to sponsor Korean American events across the country and target that ever growing demographic. Rest assured your contribution supports our mission of building an inclusive and diverse “ONE” community in the Maryland Asian American and Korean American communities.

 

       All Sponsorship Levels Receive:

  • Direct social media exposure to more than 10,000 Korean American and Asian American audience members throughout DC, Maryland and Virginia through our Facebook page, website & social media marketing materials.
  • Name, Logo and Website hyperlinked on our ticketing and Facebook event pages.
