Ardmore Initiative offers many opportunities throughout the year to advertise and promote your business through publicity efforts, marketing initiatives, and special events. In addition to our signature events, we also offer various marketing and promotional opportunities to support your business by publishing gift and event guides, organizing holiday promotions, and event support.  We encourage our business community to work together and take advantage of appropriate cross-promotional opportunities and are happy to help facilitate these conversations. In addition, sponsorship opportunities – with significant publicity and advertising exposure – are available to businesses for most Ardmore Initiative events.
