THE EVENT                                             

The Miami Valley Cycling Summit is coming to GREENE COUNTY, OHIO in May, 2017.
The event will be held at Wright State University’s Student Union in Fairborn, Ohio.  Named to honor aviation pioneers Orville and Wilbur Wright, the student union offers vast physical resources making it a prime location for the Summit.

The Miami Valley Cycling Summit (MVCS) is a regional biennial forum facilitated by Bike Miami Valley, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit advocacy organization dedicated to promoting, enabling and creating safe bicycling for recreation and transportation in the Miami Valley region. The summit is conducted as an interactive, conference-style program and includes presentations from nationally respected speakers and professionals in the field of bicycle advocacy.

The theme for the 2017 summit is CYCLING ATTRACTS … The idea behind this theme is that cycling “attracts” or helps to nurture and grow business, community health, economic development, tourism, wellness, and more!

SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

We believe that communities and businesses benefit from the economic impact, the health and wellness, and the lifestyle amenities of a bicycle friendly community.  We invite you to join with us in promoting the MVCS by serving as a sponsor of the event.  Depending on the sponsorship level you select, benefits may include, but are not limited to:

  • A table in the exhibit hall which will be accessible to all summit attendees (anticipated to be over 400) throughout the day. There will be designated times during the summit which will allow the attendees to stop by your booth and see all that you have to offer.
  • Your organization will receive widespread pre-event promotion including radio and print advertising, social media blasts, and a presence on the Miami Valley Cycling Summit website. In addition to these direct marketing tools, the event will also be promoted through various bicycle networks and professional agencies that support the event – resulting in a promotional reach across the region.
  • As a summit sponsor, you will help strengthen the movement that has already made the Miami Valley a more bicycle friendly region. Your associates, employees, business partners and customers will see the value that is placed in a vibrant community with active living and recreational opportunities.

Below you will find varying sponsorship packages. The committee is open to your suggestions and has the ability to customize sponsorship packages according to your desires and budget.
