Sponsor Packages

We invite you to join us as a sponsor of the 55th Annual Beach Haven White Marlin Invitational, the oldest white marlin tournament in the country. We would not be able to carry on this tradition without the support of our generous sponsors. We encourage you to commit early to maximize your business’ exposure. As a sponsor of this event, your business will be visible to all tournament participants and thousands of visitors – in person, on our social media and website – and not only during the event, but from the day you commit as a sponsor. We ask for your support, at any level you feel is appropriate. Please review our sponsorship packet and consider becoming a part of our vision!

Why Become a WMIT Sponsor?

HIGH RETURN ON INVESTMENT

Your brand will be promoted at two events, the WMIT and Dock Road Marlin Fest. With an estimated 75 or more offshore fishing boats and thousands of patrons and attendees over four days, the exposure of your brand will be unprecedented compared to other tournaments. We are not just a fishing tournament; we have built a community of big game fishing enthusiasts both locally and nationally through our billfish conservation efforts and with the introduction of Dock Road Marlin Fest. The increasing popularity of this event will maximize your investment.

ONLINE PRESENCE

Sponsors have their logos displayed at www.WhiteMarlinInvitational.com, from the date of your commitment through the end of the year. Depending on your level of support, sponsors will also be promoted on the tournament’s social media platforms as well as the livestream broadcast during weigh-ins. With over five thousand followers on Facebook and Instagram, our social media presence continues to grow exponentially with the assistance of professional social media consultants. In addition, we are partnered with the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, Beach Haven Chamber of Commerce and Beach Haven Borough’s www.VisitBeachHaven.com in promoting our tournament on their social media sites.

LIVESTREAM ADVERTISING

Our 2023 livestream broadcast was a huge success. For the 55th WMIT, we are offering several levels of sponsorship which include the ability to promote your brand during our livestream broadcast. The weigh-ins at Dock Road Marlin Fest will once again be professionally livestreamed all three fishing days. Based on the level of sponsorship, sponsors will provide a promotional video which will be broadcast periodically during commercial breaks. The broadcast will be viewed on several social media platforms as well as our website and in local restaurants and bars. Videos must be received no later than four weeks prior to the event.

SPRING SPONSORSHIP MIXER

Each Spring, we hold an annual sponsorship “meet and greet” in Beach Haven for those who support and sponsor the WMIT.
