What does MWR do for the military community?

Naval Support Activity Mid-South’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) Department provides high quality programs, ranging from child and youth programs, athletic and fitness programs, entertainment, food service, lodging, and a wide range of other recreational, social and leisure activities. Navy MWR’s mission is to enhance and improve the quality of life for our customers. MWR is the first choice for Sailors, Retirees, their families and Department of Defense (DoD) civilian employees.

WHAT IS COMMERCIAL SPONSORSHIP AND HOW DOES IT BENEFIT THE MILITARY COMMUNITY?

Commercial businesses and other non-federal organizations are given the opportunity to conduct commercial sponsorship (event marketing) at MWR events and programs onboard the installation. Sponsors, by entering into a negotiated agreement with MWR, and by paying a monetary and/or in-kind fee will receive access to MWR patrons, receive public recognitions and be associated with the sponsored event. Commercial Sponsorship is not philanthropy, a donation or a form of a gift, but rather, a business-based exchange of value. Assets generated through commercial sponsorship are used by MWR to enhance events and otherwise offer programming that would not be possible without sponsorship support.

WHAT CAN COMMERCIAL SPONSORSHIP DO FOR YOU?

  • Identify your product/service with the activities and lifestyles of the military market.
  • Provide visibility of your name and logo in pre-event advertising and at the sponsored event through web-based promotions, digital signage, banners, tickets, programs, flyers, etc.
  • Allow you to increase brand awareness through sampling of products/services at sponsored events.
  • Engage with our large customer base of Sailors, retirees, their families and civilian employees.
  • Generate positive publicity about your organization.
  • Include your company name in our scripted event announcements, at sponsor recognition events, etc.

 

Advertising opportunities

The MWR Advertising Opportunities are some of the only opportunities available for advertisers on-board the installation. Advertising varies from our Sponsorship Program because all opportunities are static, stand-alone promotions that are not tied to an event, but instead associated with a location for a set period of time. Advertisers are still required to enter into a negotiated agreement with MWR, and pay a monetary fee for the exposures. Advertising promotions can allow your organization to present a more detailed or direct message to the audience. Ways of Advertising your business through MWR…website, social media, banners, posters and digital displays.
