GBC 2021 Event Sponsorship Program

Each year, the Greater Baltimore Committee hosts numerous programs and events that attract corporate CEOs, business and political leaders, and young professionals from the Greater Baltimore region. These events range from the successful GBC Newsmaker Speaker Series presenting local and regional influencers to our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summit. Our always popular Annual Meeting draws as many as 1,000 of Maryland’s most influential business and political leaders.

Sponsoring a GBC event provides a unique way to connect, share and build your brand. For more than 65 years, the GBC has consistently attracted top business leaders. When your company supports a GBC event it receives tremendous visibility through marketing collaterals that reach more than 10,000 readers.

The 2021 sponsorship guide that is linked on this page serves as an example of the numerous events and sponsorship opportunities that are frequently offered by the GBC during a calendar year.

The GBC offers three premier level sponsorships, Corporate, Ambassador and Signature, as well as individual event sponsorships. Each level offers exciting networking, brand exposure and brand visibility opportunities.

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic and restrictions placed on public gatherings, at the present time all of the GBC events (except the 2021 Golf Classic) have been transitioned to a “virtual” format. The events outlined in the 2021 sponsorship guide were designed for “in person” events. As a result of the GBC moving to a “virtual” meetings/events format many of those benefits are no longer applicable. However, there are many sponsorship benefits that have been designed for the GBC’s virtual event format and the sponsorship program has proven to be extremely successful in providing recognition to member companies that have taken advantage of event sponsorships.

The GBC has elected to continue its event offerings in a “virtual” format until further notice.  During this time we will adjust the sponsorship benefits for each event to align with the particulars of our virtual events. You should use the 2021 sponsorship guide merely as a resource for sponsor benefit opportunities.

Feel free to contact Lisa Byrd, GBC’s Director of Events and Business Development, at 410-727-2820 ext. 40, or at lisab@gbc.org to learn of current event sponsorship offerings or to develop a specialized package in order to meet your company’s marketing needs.
