We would like to offer you the opportunity to be a part of Winnipeg’s Biggest Tattoo Show brought to you by artists, for artists! This wonderful event will be held at the RBC Convention Center, a venue that will highlight the wide variety of art and talent in the tattoo industry. The goal we wish to achieve by hosting Winnipeg’s biggest tattoo show is to educate and inspire artists and the public about our historic industry, and we would love for you to be apart of it!
We are offering you a unique opportunity to be a part of the show by sponsoring some of the events, and awards that will be taking place throughout the duration of the weekend. By sponsoring one of the packages listed, it creates an amazing advertising opportunity which will generate tons of exposure to all the artists, vendors, tattoo enthusiasts and general public that we expect to be in attendance.
If you are interested please take the time to read through all of our various sponsorship offers listed below as each is unique in the way we plan to give you exposure, in support of our event.
Every sponsor of the show or one of its components (Peg City Pinup, Winnipeg Beauty Unlimited) will also have their logo placed on a step and repeat banner (5’x8’) located at the main entrance. All media interviews with artists or organizers will take place in front of this banner. Last year our show had three live interviews from 3 TV stations, and we had 4 additional press interviews and photos in front of this location.
We request that you supply digital imagery to be used for the display banners and the digital banners as we understand some business images are registered or copyrighted and we do not wish to infringe on the logo or imagery. You may also elect to send us an email allowing us to access your imagery online from your sites or social media and we will draw from them for your advertising package.
