Additional Year-Round Visibility Opportunities

Don’t Limit Your Exposure to Just the NCA Convention!

The following provides added valuable opportunities to partner with the industry’s leading trade association and maintain a strategic, consistent, high-profile presence with NCA members and customers throughout the year.

NCA Cold Brew Safety Toolkit For Retailers And Video Series Sponsorship Opportunity

Cold brew is, undoubtedly, one of the hottest categories in coffee. Its rapid growth has taken everyone by surprise -- and safety regulations have been slow to adapt. 

To fill this void and help cold brew retailers brew, serve, and store cold brew safely, the NCA is assembling an all-new cold brew toolkit and video series geared for retailers. Position your brand as a leader in cold brew by sponsoring the industry's go-to guide for retail cold brew safety.

This sponsorship opportunity spans two products for NCA members that will be heavily promoted to our membership and the general public across all NCA channels, and will live in near-perpetuity* online:

  • A multi-page technical guide that will provide step-by-step guidance to NCA members who wish to brew, store, and serve cold brew safely in a retail setting; and
  • Three (3) 60-second, professionally-animated explainer videos covering the principles of cold brew safety and offering specific guidance to retailers and manufacturers of cold brew products.

This is an unparalleled opportunity to put your brand front and center in a suite of professional cold brew resources that many in the industry will refer to for critical guidance repeatedly for years to come. 
 

There are sponsorship options for every marketing objective and budget. For more information, contact Terri Bartlett, Director of Member Relations, at trbartlett@ncausa.org or at 646.924.4039.

*Minimum two years of exposure guaranteed.

 

NCA Webinar Sponsorship

Sponsoring an NCA coffee-centric webinar is a low-cost, high-visibility opportunity to reach an interested and captive audience. Benefits include:

  • Name/logo/web link displayed on opening and closing presentation slides.
  • Verbal acknowledgement of company description and web link at the opening and closing of the webinar.
  • The verbal and visual acknowledgments listed above will be captured during the recording process and will have a permanent presence on the on-demand video recording.
  • Opportunity to be featured in the NCA’s blog, The First Pull, in a sponsor spotlight.
  • Acknowledgement in sponsored webinar marketing communications.

Visit www.ncausa.org for upcoming webinars. For more information, contact Terri Bartlett at trbartlett@ncausa.org  or at 646.924.4039.
