Why Sponsor EITF?

Now in its 42nd year, The Edinburgh International Television Festival brought to you by YouTube and BT, is a non-profit making organisation with charitable status. Our on-going success and continued growth as the UK’s leading broadcasting industry event is dependent on the much valued commitment and support of our sponsors.

Sponsorship at the festival goes far beyond typical brand ‘badging’, as we seek to create sustainable, mutually beneficial partnerships that enable our sponsors to contribute to and enhance the overall Festival experience while achieving their ROI objectives on their investment.

As sponsor, you can become a thought leader via a co-produced session or workshop, host your own networking event or party to bring the elite of the TV industry to you or showcase your latest technologies and campaigns through a spectrum of on-site branded activities to suit all budgets.

Please contact us today to discuss your specific requirements.
