*These are our standard sponsorship packages, but we are also open to other arrangements. If it’s important that your competitors aren’t present, we are happy to discuss exclusivity. If you are more interested in advertising space than presenting or tabling at the event, we can create a more robust advertising package. We can also work together to create a customized experience of your brand for our festival goers. PSNY’s production arm specializes in immersive, interactive, experiential marketing; it would be our pleasure to more meaningfully integrate your brand into the festival environment and the natural beauty of Governors Island.
