Socially Responsible Business Awards Sponsorships Open

BOSTON, MA (May 28, 2008) – Sponsorship opportunities are now available for the 14th Socially Responsible Business Awards (SRBA), the free breakfast event held during Natural Products Expo East at the Boston Convention Center. The Friday, October 10, 2008 event will feature an interview-style discussion with internationally known social entrepreneur and Clif Bar founder Gary Erickson.

Sponsorship of the SRBA Breakfast gives industry companies and organizations the chance to join with other like-minded businesses in supporting socially responsible and sustainable business practices and creating community around these issues. Sponsorship also provides those companies with a unique opportunity to promote their own socially responsible initiatives to members of the natural products industry through alignment with the event, which includes pre-event promotion, on-site and online recognition, and post-show, trade-media coverage.

All co-sponsors are invited to donate food and beverage items to be served at the breakfast. 2008 sponsorship must be confirmed by August 14, 2008, to be included in event signage. Levels of sponsorship include:

Gold Associate Sponsor: $1,200

Silver Co-sponsor: $600
