Below are quotes from our past sponsors:

“Fest Africa is a great outreach event for a company like ours.  The exposure we got from our sponsorship far exceeded the value of the Sponsorship fee.  The event was a great source of leads; in fact, a few of the households that visited our booth have since become our clients.  Any business that is interested in growth, especially amongst the audience that Fest Africa reaches, will certainly benefit from participation in this event and we plan to work with them for many years to come.”- Stacy Tucker State Farm Insurance Company

“Our company worked with Fest Africa as a 2013 festival sponsor. I highly recommend this opportunity to other small businesses and nonprofits who are hoping to gain more exposure in a fun and creative way. After being listed as a sponsor, we noticed immediate results including increased website visits that were referred by their website and social media postings. On the day of the event, we also received several inquiries and made connections with potential clients that were interested in our services.

Their sponsorship team was also a delight to work with. From our initial inquiry to the day of the event, all representatives were very professional and responsive. They followed through and delivered on all the benefits that were included in our package, and even went the extra mile with following up to ensure that we were satisfied with their services. I strongly recommend this sponsorship opportunity for other small businesses and nonprofits.”

Andrena Sawyer, P.E.R.K Consulting 

Working with FestAfrica was a delight and a pleasure. We took out the Gold sponsorship package and received true value for our money. We experienced considerable growth in our listener numbers which we tracked by comparing data from those listening in the DMV area prior to and immediately after the festival and the results were impressive.  Another bonus was working with an extremely organized and professional backend team that made every provision to accommodate us at the event. Looking forward to FestAfrica 2015.

Keep it up guys..
