FMF 2003 Model Calendar: Advertisting deadline: Spring 2003 (to be announced)
One of the events held during the Future Music Festival will be a 2003 Model Calendar Search. This calendar will include not only important holidays, but also important dates to remember for future Mixcraft events, industry events, and more. It will be given to the patrons who registered for a festival pass BEFORE the event. If by chance under 500 register, it will be offered to the first 500 patrons who register at the opening night party, or any of the other events during the week of the festival.
The calendar is a great way for sponsors to have their product or service reinforced to patrons who attended the festival all year long. It will also be marketed on the Mixcraft website until the end of March.

Festival badges
no longer have a deadline. You can guarantee yourself a badge by registering early, or procrastinating as many of us do, and just show up. We will announce locations on and offline to purchase a badge in the upcoming months. 
Only Freedom and Diamond sponsors will have their names printed on this badge. Freedom sponsors will have their name printed on the front of the badge AND the string for the badge; Diamond sponsors will have their names printed on the front or back of the badge only (depending on availability). Badges will be ready by the end of September. Patrons, press, staff, and sponsors will all be able to pick up their badges at a specified location to be announced shortly.

Banners:
On our upgraded website to be launched late fall, we will offer banners. They will be created and customized to each companies' need. All sponsors automatically qualify for a banner on this website. There is no deadline, as banners are posted and kept online from the time of confirmation to 30 days after the festival. This is an excellent opportunity to build your company's reputation among a loyal and dedicated base of patrons from Houston to the world.

Promotion/advertising/marketing
: All sponsors receive different levels of promotion, according to their needs.
Some of the means we are using to promote the festival are internet (our site, and several promoter partners both here in Houston, as well as all over the country), flyers, posters, radio ads, pre-festival parties, local magazines and newspapers. There are others that can be utilized to better suit your needs, but these are the most basic and essential.
The details of specifics are to be inquired about, as they vary from the needs of one company to another.
