Why Partner With Us?
The Commercial Sponsorship and Advertising Program is the only authorized avenue at Hanscom to target this dynamic market. By partnering with the 66 FSS your business and brand will be exposed to a lucrative hard-to-reach military market and civilian workforce. We offer fitness, sporting, and health events, youth and family programs, and more. We use a variety of marketing tools and can customize an opportunity for your business to ensure the best exposure. We’re extremely appreciative for any support from local and national businesses that understand the sacrifice made by our military and their families. Any contribution makes a significant impact – new equipment, uniforms, gift certificates, prizes, etc. We look forward to building a lasting partnership and fostering bilateral goodwill.
Commercial Sponsorship can be in the form of cash, goods, and/or services or a combination of the three in exchange for stipulated marketing. When you choose to promote your business at our events you reach hundreds and even thousands of consumers with your onsite signage, product displays, samples, and demonstrations. You will increase brand awareness within the Hanscom community while at the same time expand and enhance the vital programs that contribute to the quality of life for our military community. Some of these events would be cost-prohibitive without sponsorship.
The 66 FSS promotes hundreds of targeted events each year. We have a diverse array of potential customers at our golf and bowling tournaments, club events, youth programs, recreation trips and festivals. Below are examples of events that take place on Hanscom AFB each year. These events provide great opportunities for exposure to the military community. Please ask for a current list of planned events with specific dates.
Donations to the Hanscom community are very special gifts. We’ll work diligently to place your gift to work in programs that need assistance to continue to serve those who serve our nation. In addition to our gratitude, we’ll mention your gift at one of our events.
The Commercial Advertising Program offers the opportunity to display your company’s information in a variety of online/print materials, as well as within the facilities.
Hanscom’s military members and families want to leave the base and interact with new surroundings, experience new things and travel to new places. Advertising provides the opportunity to target our community who may not know about your business. A consistent and repetitive advertising campaign is the easiest and most effective way to build brand awareness.
Hanscom Bowling Lanes
Hanscom Lanes 12-lane bowling center features automated, computerized score keeping consoles and overhead scoring monitors. When a lane is not in use, the screen continuously loops advertisements. The center features a snack bar and beverages. This location is a hot-stop on the base for families, kids, and various leagues. Multiple bowling tournaments are held in the facility during the year. Your advertisement will make more than 2,000 impressions per week.
Throughout Hanscom AFB, the 66 FSS maintains full color digital vertical/horizontal display monitors that constantly rotate our programs and events in high-traffic areas. These monitors are open to a limited number of advertisers to ensure maximum exposure. You can expect your advertisement to be seen by more than 3,500 customers per week.
We have great locations for posters. Your poster will be placed in a triple-stand as featured or in a single frame.
The mobile-friendly FSS website is a one-stop comprehensive guide for all FSS events, programs, services, facility hours, contact information, and more. This is the only website authorized on Hanscom to advertise to the base community. The advertisement will directly connect to your website.
For maximum consumer exposure, we offer select high-traffic indoor/outdoor locations to hang banners. Choice of location is on a first come, first serve basis. Business must provide weather-resistant banner that is equipped with grommets and wind slits. The 66 FSS is not responsible for lost or damaged banners due to inclement weather.
