March 6, UWM Day at the State Fair 2014 Meeting

3 p.m., Regents Room, 2nd floor, Chapman Hall

Once again this year, UWM will be the day sponsor at the Wisconsin State Fair on Sunday, August 3, 2014, and all schools, colleges, and departments are invited to participate.

Being a day sponsor allows UWM the opportunity to provide all of the programming in the Central Park area of the State Fair on Aug. 3 including entertainment and demonstrations on the Central Park stage, participation in the State Fair daily parade, coverage in all Fair collateral materials (preview booklet, daily fliers), print advertisements, web page, social media, billboards, gate signage, and PA announcements.

Last year, attendance on UW-Milwaukee Day at the State Fair exceeded 109,000! Additionally, all UW-Milwaukee Day volunteers receive free admission to the Fair along with a special “UW-Milwaukee Day at the State Fair” volunteer t-shirt.

If you would like to learn more about this incredible marketing opportunity for your school, college or department, please plan to attend the meeting on Thursday, March 6 at 3 p.m. in the Regents Room in Chapman Hall. At the meeting, we will provide of recap of UW-Milwaukee Day 2013, discuss ideas for this year’s day, share suggestions on how you can successfully market your group at UW-Milwaukee Day, and provide deadlines for signing up.

We hope to see you there. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Lynn Wilk at lcwilk@uwm.edu or 414-229-6917.
