Sponsorship is a critical and fundamental ingredient of Gemfest – “Festival of Gems”. Over the years, the generous support by organisations and individuals is directly responsible for the event’s success as a method of showcasing and celebrating the unique Gems that are found on the Sapphire Gemfields.

Gemfest is responsible for bringing visitors to our region to experience the unique Festival, but also for showcasing the Sapphire Gemfields for visitors 52 weeks of the year.

Zircon_120This year Gemfest is in its 28th year. This year’s major Gemfest promotions include attendance at the Sydney Caravan, Camping and Holiday Supershow (11th to 19th April) and the Brisbane Caravan, Camping and Touring Holiday Supershow (4th to 10th June). This will promote the whole of the Gemfields with a flow on effect to all local businesses.

Quartz_120Once more, we are appealing for sponsorship big and small to join us in making Gemfest 2015 the most successful yet. Gemfest- “Festival of Gems” offers a number of Sponsorship Packages. We recognise that donations are very carefully considered in the current financial climate. We are keen to ensure that sponsors are rewarded for their generosity with community recognition and positive commercial benefits.

Remembering that your commitment is 50% cash and 50% prize, the four levels are:

  • Sapphire $2,000
  • Zircon $1,000
  • Quartz $500
  • Spinel $200

Please, feel free to contact us if you have any ideas or suggestions to customise any Package to your needs.

Spinel_120We do not require the cash component until 30th June. We do need you to sign off on the agreement by the 31st March so we can ensure you are included in all the benefits of your participation. The Gemfest committee is working towards having the Passport out as soon as possible. Attached are the benefits of each level.

Kind regards
