Sponsorship Opportunities

Get unique access to Florida’s Port CEOs by becoming a Florida Ports Council Sponsor!

Florida Ports Council Sponsors are in the spotlight at our events. Our sponsorship program is designed to foster collaboration, support, and partnership opportunities between the Florida Ports Council Board of Directors and businesses and organizations, interested in the growth and development of Florida’s seaports. This program offers a range of sponsorship levels, each tailored to provide unique benefits, recognition, and engagement opportunities throughout the year.

Sponsors are given name and logo recognition on all our event marketing – which includes our website, email, social media and print marketing. Not only are you able to network with key decision makers, sponsors are often given time to speak during the event so that you can deliver your message directly. We offer everything from intimate dinner gatherings, to a larger audience at our VIP cocktail reception.  Some event options are very popular so confirm your sponsorship early if you desire something specific.
