New York, NY (PRWEB) August 17, 2009
LoftLife magazine (loftlifemag.com), announces a partnership with Castleberry Hill's Eighth Annual Loft Tour on September 26th and 27th, hosted by the Castleberry Hill Neighborhood Association & Paschal's Restaurant. The development of the media sponsorship was supported by recently launched marketing services platform, SponsorPitch.com.
The Loft Tour has grown each year, welcoming thousands of visitors each day to Castleberry Hill's Landmark District. The eighth annual Loft Tour will feature a juried tour through eight of the city's urban lofts, local cuisine from newly opened restaurants and a chance to browse the neighborhood's acclaimed art galleries and boutiques.
"LoftLife launched using Atlanta as a test market, so it is a no-brainer for us to support the Loft Tour, which showcases urban living in a historic neighborhood, and features eight distinct lofts of various styles and ranging in décor." said Erin Ryder of LoftLife magazine.
In addition to receiving sponsorship benefits on-site and online, LoftLifemag.com will feature Loft Tour content and event coverage.
"LoftLife is a natural fit for us," said Loft Tour Chair Carrie Sagel Burns. "As a media partner, LoftLife will help us maximize exposure for our event and add value to this year's Loft Tour experience. They have their pulse on the loft market worldwide and Castleberry Hill is one of the best examples of that market."
Assisting in Loft Tour's sales efforts, SponsorPitch.com helped share general sponsorship information with LoftLife and provided a showcase for the Castleberry Hill Loft Tour's sponsorship opportunity. Following review of the proposal, LoftLife and the Castleberry Hill Neighborhood Association discussed the sponsorship offline and came to an agreement.
"We are always on the look out for appropriate event partnerships," Ryder said. "While we were aware of the annual Castleberry Hill Loft Tour, we were impressed by their dynamic sponsorship presentation, and in follow-up, were able to negotiate a unique partnership both online and with a strong presence at the Loft Tour." said Ryder.
Tickets for the Castleberry Hill Loft Tour are $10 in advance and $15 on the days of the event. In addition, Loft Tour sponsorship opportunities are still available.
