What is Commercial Advertising?

The Army’s Family and MWR Commercial Advertising Program generates revenue for Fort Drum's military community through its activities and programs. Family and MWR Commercial Advertisers are guaranteed promotion of their products, services, and businesses within the military community.

What is Commercial Sponsorship?

Commercial Sponsorship is an exchange of values. Family and MWR Commercial Sponsors provide goods, cash, or services to underwrite the cost of  Family and MWR programs and events in return for advertising or promotional opportunities within the military community.

What’s in it for you?

Family and MWR Commercial Sponsorship and Advertising is an effective means of achieving visibility in the military market. Your business can build name awareness, enhance business image, and increase visibility through:

  • Visual identification with sponsor’s trademark, logo, name or message used on flyers, printed programs, table tents, bookmarks, balloons, signs, banners, coupons, electronic media, and other promotional materials.
  • Acknowledgment in event publicity including public news releases, on-site announcements, and other promotional materials.
  • Opportunity for product sales tie-ins, exhibits, displays and demonstrations, sampling, and the opportunity to do market research prior to or at events.
  • Direct access to the military market.
  • Maximum exposure and visibility for your products and services.
