Advertising and Sponsorship

The grass is greener where you water it.
Neil Barringham

Advertising Sponsorship is a great way to help support the wonderful events of Jeff Mach Events while also building your business.

You do not have to be a vendor at GKE Classic to advertise or sponsor! You can reach our attendees even if you can’t be at the event!

Through our sponsorship program, you can leverage the popularity of our events to promote yourself through program book ads, web ads, and even social media.

A 10% discount will be offered to those advertising/sponsoring at both GKE:NE and GKE Classic.

An overview of advertising and sponsorship is below. Through our sponsorship program, you can leverage the popularity of our events to promote yourself through program book ads, web ads, and even social media.

All files must be 300dpi and CMYK. File Formats accepted for print ads: PDF, JPG, PSD, and TIF. Please add a 1/8th inch bleed on all printed ads. Don’t have an ad? No problem! Design services are available.

KinKardia (ConCardia – GKE:NE variation)

ConCardia will be at GKE:NE! You also have the opportunity to provide tournament prizes. GKE:NE features a Kink specific version of ConCardia – KinKardia!

Info at http://www.concardia.info.  ConCardia is a separate entity from Jeff Mach Events. If you have questions regarding ConCardia, please contact Michael Whitehouse at info@concardiagame.com

What is ConCardia? ConCardia is a collectible card game in the truest sense of the phrase. Rather than buying packs, players get cards by exploring the convention. They sign up at the ConCardia table for free and are given a series of tasks and quests to get cards. The very first quest they must complete before they can pursue any others is that of visiting every single sponsoring vendor to get the card that they hold.

  • Basic KinKardia Sponsorship (100 cards) – $50
  • Extra KinKardia card sets – $10/100 cards
