Join the Conversation on the Ocean and Great Lakes

The Blue Beacon Series aims to bring to light the ocean and Great Lakes’ biggest challenges through panels, lectures, and film screenings hosted around the country in order to build communities of support for marine protected areas. This series builds on the momentum of Capitol Hill Ocean Week, the nation’s premier conference on ocean and Great Lakes policy issues by bringing these important conversations into locally relevant contexts.

Sponsorship Opportunities

The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation is currently seeking sponsors to support Blue Beacon Series events in new communities. Sponsorship of individual events or for the overall series provides an excellent opportunity for your brand to reach new audiences and demonstrate a commitment to social responsibility. Sponsors have the opportunity to provide remarks at series events, be included in digital marketing, enjoy reserved seating and other privileges at events, and have their logo featured on signage and printed materials.

Blue Beacon Sponsorships are $5,000 for a Blue Beacon Event Sponsorship, for a single event in a specific location, and $20,000 for a Blue Beacon Series Sponsorship, for all events in the series and at all locations.
