In 2019, Plastic Playground will be a single event at Liquid Leisure, the world’s best wake park. Plastic Playground is the only wakeboarding competition to attract the very best wakeboarders from around world to every event. News and live video from the Plastic Playground events is covered and shared by the global wakeboard industry press.
PLASTIC PLAYGROUND EVENTS
One of the clearest advantages of sponsoring a Plastic Playground event is the ability for your company to reach a broad global audience – something that is becoming more difficult in an increasingly fragmented media landscape. Wakeboarding, and in particular cable wakeboarding, has always appealed to a wide range of demographics. The social nature of the sport creates an interesting mix of aspiring like-minded people. This audience will be reflected in the travelling and online spectators, who are typically a mix of different age groups and professions.

On average, 100 competitors attend Plastic Playground events, with a combined global social media reach of over 1,000,000 followers.

ON-SITE EVENT OPPORTUNITIES
There are opportunities both small and large at Plastic Playground events for brands to display and interact directly with both the audience and competitors. From running a trade stand to promote your brand or gain direct sales, to displaying branding in prominent locations, so it is captured in photos/videos and shared across social media platforms. These are just some of the off the shelf opportunities available when partnering with the Plastic Playground World Series.
For those brands who look to increase their activities beyond the above, the Plastic Playground team will work with them to create a bespoke package. Previously, these have included product giveaways, branded areas and other interactive experiences for the audience and competitors at the events.
This is reserved for a partner that is looking for the ultimate in brand activation. The position as Title Sponsor is an exclusive opportunity, where the partner would not be sharing this prime brand positioning. This package includes; but is not limited to:
- Prominent logo and link to your website on the relevant event webpages
- Large logo on transitions during the highlight shows
- Frequent commentary references during highlight shows
- Logo on all social media videos
- Prominent references on social media posts (positioned above Associated Sponsors)
- Ability to display banners, feather flags and table parasols at the event(s)
- 12m x 4m (space only) trade stand position at event(s)
These positions are available to partners who want to build their brand recognition at a lower cost than Title Sponsors, or if that exclusive position has already been taken. Associated Sponsors will have their brand on show before, during and after the event. This package includes:
- Logo and link to your website on the relevant event webpages
- Small logo on transitions during the highlight shows
- Infrequent commentary references during highlight shows
- References on social media posts (positioned lower than the Title Sponsor)
- Ability to display limited number of banners and feather flags at the relevant stop(s)

If you have any further questions about any of the packages, or have any other ideas about teaming up with Plastic Playground, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We would love to show you around the Liquid Leisure facilities near Windsor, so you can see the potential for your brand at the home of Plastic Playground.
