Sponsorship Opportunities

Corporate Sponsorship

Corporate sponsorship is a true, year-long partnership. Companies are an integral part of RAIN’s success. Companies gain brand recognition and awareness among the thousands that attend RAIN events every year. RAIN sponsorship opportunities can be tailored to meet specific needs and interests of businesses and corporations. Individual event sponsorship opportunities are also available.
