Event Sponsorships

ready to reach customers?

Supporting local businesses and artists is what we are all about at the Xpand brand. We understand that each business has it’s own challenges and priorities and we have the expertise to create an event or partnership marketing package that is designed specifically for you.

By truly partnering with our sponsors and local businesses we avoid cookie cutter marketing strategies to create synergy, maximizing our shared target audience. With a “local-first” mentality you can be sure that your image will not be lost and that we will work directly with you to achieve results. 
According to a study done by the City of Asheville, outdoor festivals and events contribute more than 2.5 million dollars a year to the local economy, and the Xpand brand is one of the companies supporting local businesses in accessing those dollars. With business booths, activation opportunities and custom curated partnership our programs and events are a platform to connects individuals with businesses they can be proud to support.

Partner & Media Quotes:

“Xpand Fest has proven to be a terrific boon to our bottom line (increasing sales by 3x!) and utterly pleasant.”

2018 Partner and local business owner on Coxe Avenue

“Xpand Fest and the Xpand brand programming is a huge opportunity for Asheville to showcase how local businesses, artists, and wellness practitioners collaborating and supporting each other brings strength to families and the community.”

2017/2018 Xpand Fest Vendor and Partner

“From the treatment of the artists and musicians to the set up of the festival itself Xpand Fest is one of the most professional and cutting edge festivals out there. If this was happening in downtown Denver it would still be the coolest thing in town that weekend.”
