See what our sponsors have to say:
Groupon: Working with Festivals Inc. on the Bite of Seattle® has been one of the best sponsorship experiences I have had. Not only was the event exactly what they promised, they were quick to respond to questions
and never said no. Rather than saying they couldn't make
something happen, they would present all the opportunities
and let us pick the one that fit our needs best.
Boeing Employees Credit Union: I have had the opportunity to work with Festivals Inc. now for several years and it is always a pleasure to work with them. I appreciate their professionalism and flexibility. I know that they are always open to new ideas and work very, very hard at creating a true partnership. I know when I work with them that the outcome will benefit my business and
I look forward to working with them for many years to come.
Crystal Springs Water: First and foremost I would like to say “Thank-YOU”…and that comes the myself and Crystal Springs Sales team. You and your team made all the events we participated in this summer absolutely awesome. With all the demands you guys have to manage
during these events we never go without any request we may
have being fulfilled. Looking forward to working with you for years to come.
Hendrick's Gin Tour: From a volume perspective, there are few better opportunities to get your brand and product in front of a large audience than Bite of Seattle® . Our booth was an absolute hit and we’re beyond satisfied with our partnership.
Natures Path: Attending Bite for the first time, we thought all the volunteers and the event staff, particularly Brett Gorrell, were fabulous, friendly and so easy to work with! They were always available to answer any of our questions or accommodate our needs throughout the pre-planning stages to the actual event to ensure our presence was delightfully nourishing at Bite. We’ll be back next year!
Daiya Foods: We’ve had a fantastic experience at Bite of Seattle® the past several years. I don’t think we’ve ever sampled so many people in three days! Bite of Seattle® was a wonderful opportunity to network with consumers from every walk of life. From young to old, foodie to food naive, each day at the event allowed my company to get product into the mouths of individuals we wouldn’t have had the chance to get in front of any other way. Between the delicious food offerings, numerous live music stages, and the beautiful setting of Seattle Center, Bite of Seattle® was more than just a great marketing opportunity; it was also a joy to attend. - Nicky Shaw, Brand Manager
Ocean Spray: I have to extend a special "thank you" to you and your entire staff. Your team was a real pleasure to work with and were great at accommodating all of our needs. Every time I needed anything at all, even the slightest request you answered right away and made it happen. Also please extend a "thank you" to the guys with the cart who went out of their way to help us bring more product from the truck.
Advil Liqui-Gels: From the moment we arrived at the Bite of Seattle® until our final load-out, the event was a great success. Brett Gorrell and his hardworking staff were very friendly and accommodating every step of the way. The atmosphere was lively and the attendance was huge, making it an ideal venue to distribute Advil® Liqui-Gels®.
Festivals Inc. eliminated our headaches, making it easy
for us to eliminate everyone else’s!
The Sponsorship Placement Company (representing Harley-Davidson): Working with the Bite of Seattle® is one of the best event marketing experiences in the industry. Their sponsor relations and communication before, during and post event is terrific. I'll continue to bring sponsors to this outstanding event whenever possible!
Tums Freshers (on behalf of OBO Activation): We travel to over 20 similar festivals each year and are thrilled to say the combination of the Taste of Tacoma® and Bite of Seattle® was by far our best activation to date. The events were professionally organized and managed with exceptional on site customer service throughout. In launching a new product for our client with these sponsorships,
we felt the brand was recognized and well received by the
consumers in attendance at both. - Ann Defforge / owner of OBO Activation
hp Mobile Promotions: We at Alloy Marketing and Promotions bring our marketing programs to hundreds of events throughout the year. The Bite of Seattle® is consistently one of the most successful with regards to offering our clients access to hundreds of thousands of savvy consumers in a fun, family environment.
Market Reach: Each year Market Reach takes part in 100 or more events nationwide on behalf of our clients. Without exaggeration Festivals Inc. is the most professional group we deal with. From the point of sponsorship sale to the event opening day it is always a smooth process with lots of personal contact along the way to make certain we are happy so our clients can be happy.
Unilever Best Foods: Not only does the staff at Festivals Inc. show complete dedication to the execution of a flawless event, but they have a great time in doing so. They've exceeded my and my client's expectations and I can't wait to work with them again in the future!
Quadrant Homes: What a surprise we had at the Bite of Seattle®! Over the years we have always stayed away from sponsorships like this because they are time intensive and we could never really get the ROI we expected. But your event was quite different. We were able to get over 200
leads from the event. And we got over 100 "renter
revolution" videos - I couldn't believe it.
Seattle Seahawks: The staff was very helpful and a pleasure to work with! Everyone was very accommodating and the event ran smoothly. As well, the other vendors made it a great experience. We had a really good time working these events! We can’t wait to be back next year!
Marketing Agency on behalf of General Mills: Working in the entertainment and marketing industry for over five years, I have to say that participating in the Bite of Seattle™ was by far my best experience ever. From the preliminary coordination stages to the end of event celebration, I have never met and worked with more accommodating people. The staff that puts on and manages this event is beyond professional and helpful, they have an amazing way of making you feel that you are the only person they are there to help. With the daunting task of distributing over
200,000 samples, the staff of Festivals Inc. bent over backwards
to ensure that the event was a total success for us. I look forward
to taking part in this event in years to come and will encourage all
of my clients to develop a sponsorship package that includes participation
in the Bite of Seattle™. I would like to give a special thanks to
Brett Gorrell and Jeff Fisher who went out of their way to make sure we
reached our goals and had a great time.
Conoco Phillips: The Bite of Seattle® is one of the biggest and best events in Seattle. The staff makes it so turn-key, how can you not be a part of it?
Mobile Media Enterprises / WNBA Tour: The event was a huge success for us, one of the best on the tour so far. Thanks for all of your help prior to and during the event.
The UPS Store: The event was amazing and all went well.
I did not anticipate our lunch caddy’s being such a hit. I’m glad we were able to participate and certainly appreciate all the help you andyour team provided. Every day was as seamless as the first.
Momentum WW on behalf of Glenfiddich: The feedback we received about the Bite has been very positive all-around, and it sounds like it was one of, if not the busiest event we’ve had to-date on our tour. The target demographic was well represented and our ability to deliver on our clients expectations of sampling at
scale was achieved.
Filippo Berio: Our sponsorship with the Bite of Seattle could not have gone better in our opinion. All the consumers were friendly, approachable, and very open to talking/learning more about Filippo Berio. We cannot thank the Bite of Seattle staff enough for making our load in/out and presence at Bite of Seattle seamless. In the age of ever climbing festival ticket prices, being a part of a free long standing festival was incredibly refreshing. We hope to be back next year, thanks again all!
