Sponsors & Partners

This is a Festival for and about people. It is a time to enjoy our heritage and to explore the cultures of writers from around the world. An investment in the Festival is not only a marketing opportunity; it is an investment in the economic, social and cultural well-being of our society. By working together we are able to tailor a partnership that meets your objectives, delivers tangible outcomes and optimises return on your investment.

Our sponsors gain from: 

  • Targeting a diverse and discerning audience
  • Sending a positive message to stakeholders
  • Being an integral part of Asia’s premier literary arts Festival

Our sponsorship opportunities are unique and varied. We work with sponsors to take an individual and creative approach that
ensures objectives are met and partnerships are proactive.

Tailored benefit packages can include:

  • Branding in brochures and on the website
  • Branding in events
  • Access to tickets to events
  • Unique hospitality opportunities
