Sponsorship Opportunities

Gain access to the minds and markets leading economic development in Dutchess County and the Hudson Valley by becoming a sponsor of Think Dutchess Alliance for Business events.  Our events create opportunities to attract new clients and enhance your business relationships with current customers. As a Think Dutchess event sponsor, you will earn the recognition of your peers for your commitment to, and leadership in, the economic development community. We offer a wide range of sponsorship opportunities to give you added visibility and exposure to your peers and customers.

The Business Excellence Awards

Our signature event, The Business Excellence Awards, is the premier business event in Dutchess County. Celebrating the best in business for more than 20 years, the event brings together the county’s most renowned business leaders, entrepreneurs and government officials impacting the local economy and the Hudson Valley region. Sponsorship creates a valuable opportunity to place your business at the center of development and in reach of the most important influencers in the Hudson Valley.

Join Us For A Special Virtual Event

Although we may not be able to safely gather in person for the region’s favorite
networking event, we can still celebrate together!

This year, perhaps more than ever, we need to honor the accomplishments, creativity and resilience of the businesses that are committed to moving Dutchess County forward.

The Business Excellence Awards typically gathers nearly 400 of the region’s top C-Suite executives, community leaders and innovative entrepreneurs that consistently elevate Dutchess County’s work and lifestyle offerings.

This year, your support is appreciated even more! We all know that supporting our small business sector is essential to our economic vitality. Sponsorship and “ticket” sales for this year’s virtual event will support local restaurants.

With your contribution, you will receive at least one “Stay At Home Celebration
Ticket.” Each ticket will include a special boxed treat from one of several
Dutchess-based eateries available for pick up the day of the event.



Completed sponsorship forms can be emailed to rachel@thinkdutchess.com or mailed to: Think Dutchess Alliance for Business 3 Neptune Road Poughkeepsie, NY 12601 Suite A-21. All forms and payment must be submitted by November 6, 2020 to assure full sponsorship benefits.
