Hip Hop Hall of Fame + Museum developers, and the upcoming Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards Induction Ceremony & Concert TV Show producers announce its inaugural Corporate Brands Upfront Sponsorship Mixer Event to take place in November 2015 to lock in hip hop artists, moguls and national brand leaders for official category sponsorships, naming rights and strategic partnerships.
There are multi-tiered levels of sponsorships, partnerships, and major tax deductible gift and donation packages for the Non-profit Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum’s new Harlem Building location, and annual HHHOF Co-Branded Live Events & Programming including the flagship Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards TV Show.
The HHHOF Co-Branded Events sponsorships provide brands the opportunity to be the official HHHOF multi-cultural marketing & community outreach partners in all local and national promotional campaigns and tours scheduled for activation in the 4th quarter 2015 through the Hip Hop Museum grand opening in late 2016-2017.
HHHOF Museum naming rights and sponsorships provide brands and major gift donors a direct opportunity to help support and establish the HHHOF Museum including architectural design, exhibits & attractions, design & construction, building construction, museum exhibits build-out and general fund operations.
These contributions also provide exclusivity and naming rights on exhibits and museum components, educational programs and targeted applications. These opportunities also extend to the building outdoor marquee, video wall, floors, concert lounge, restaurant & retail vendor partnerships, in-house television studios, websites, quarterly symposiums and magazine, plus national & international tours. The recent success of the HHHOF and Live Nation partnership on the Legends Concert is the model set for the upcoming Hip Hop Hall of Fame 20 City ‘Legends History Tour’ with a traveling museum exhibit for youth and community engagement and live concert event.
The Hip Hop Hall of Fame + Museum will also utilize and serve these sponsorship partner brands products, drinks, equipment and services in the daily museum operations at the facility, and incorporate them into the fabric of the museums displays, attractions and exhibits architecture. “We will also offer a wide-ranging selection of direct support opportunities for major gift providers and donors who will become the Founding Partners and Sponsors of the Hip Hop Hall of Fame + Museum that will become a national treasure,” stated JT Thompson creator of the HHHOF Awards on BET and founder of the HHHOF Museum.
