Sponsorship Proposal Guidelines
Why we have guidelines:


Conrad Jupiters recognises the important role that the organisation plays in the
local community and we are committed to continuing the company’s record as
patron of many charity, cultural, and community activities in the South East
Queensland region.

However due to the large number of proposals we receive each week, it
unfortunately makes it difficult for us to accept every idea presented to us.

Hence, we have outlined below a series of guidelines to help you submit a
proposal that meets our needs.


In general:

These are the general criteria by which we initially assess the proposals:
• We will consider proposals in all categories except sponsorship of individuals
  who are not competing at an elite or international level;
• We prefer to support local or Gold Coast regional events;
• We generally require a minimum of six months lead-time;
• Logo exposure is not the primary goal of sponsorship, it is considered a
  bonus;
• We prefer to invest in sponsorships that carry out audience research during
  and/or after the event, including sponsor questions and provide the results of
  the research to Conrad Jupiters.
• Both Conrad Jupiters and Conrad Treasury contribute monies to the Jupiters
  Casino Community Benefit Fund. The aim of this organisation is to assist
  local charities to purchase capital items necessary to run their day to day
  business. Any requests for grants should be addressed directly to the fund:

Servicing expectations:

If your proposal is successful, it is expected that Conrad Jupiters would receive
written reports both during and at the completion of the event outlining how our
objectives were achieved.

Evaluation:

It is also expected that both parties would conduct an evaluation process after the
event to determine if both organisations’ objectives were met.

Where appropriate, the post evaluation document should include the following
information:

• Introduction;
• Situational analysis;
• Sponsorship analysis;
• Results i.e. sales, media coverage, research, sponsor’s image i.e. awareness of
  sponsor, attitude to sponsor etc, numbers affected by the sponsorship;
• Attendance figures;

Exclusions:

As a gaming establishment, Conrad Jupiters maintains a high regard for the
importance it plays in the community. Hence, any proposal that is primarily aimed
at the following would not be considered:

• children or anyone under the age of 18;
• any event that contravenes the government’s gaming rules and regulations (Qld
  Government Law prohibits the Casino from promoting at events primarily of
  appeal to minors e.g. children’s concert or children’s sporting event);
• individuals seeking support for overseas travel to compete in specific events or
  academic study;
• quest/ beauty competitions;
• political organisations or campaigns;
• religious organisations or campaigns;
• requests for print or online advertising;
                                         -4-

•   All proposals are reviewed by the Public Relations Manager to assess
    suitability, feasibility, and resources required to manage the event. Proposals
    must be on company or the organisation’s letterhead and be addressed to:
