Testimonials from Sponsors of St. Patrick's Festival 2024

'We had a fantastic experience with St. Patrick's Festival. This was our 3rd consecutive year as a main sponsor for the festival and that alone shows the benefits of such a corporate partnership to us as a brand. In 2024, following a short briefing process, organisers responded with a detailed activation plan that was designed to showcase our sustainability strategy to festival goers. Not only did they create 5 floats in the parade, but they also produced an activation at Festival Quarter to provide a tangible vision of how recycled materials are used in our vehicles as part of our journey towards Carbon Neutrality. Overall, feedback from attendees was excellent and we were delighted with this partnership .'

'The Olympic Federation of Ireland along with its primary sponsor PTSB would strongly recommend an involvement with St. Patrick's Festival. The range of options to deliver real impact at community, national and international level make it a very interesting opportunity and, in our case, helped to leverage the excitement ahead of the Olympic Games and our centenary year. The attention to detail, flexibility and communication with the staff at St. Patrick’s Festival and the creative teams was excellent. Overall, a very positive experience underpinned by strong results.'

European Recycling Platform Ireland

24 DV Trash Mammoth FQ

'At ERP Ireland, we were delighted to work with Ellie Dowling and all the team at St. Patrick’s Festival on bringing our combined vision for Trash Mammoth at SPF to life.​

The team really took the time to understand what we wanted to achieve from our sustainable partnership and the key messages that we wanted to impart on festival-goers. The festival provided an excellent platform to promote electrical waste recycling and the circular economy through a unique partnership opportunity. The St. Patrick’s Festival team ensured that there was someone available to us at each stage of the project - from working on our joint communications output, to assembling the Trash Mammoth installation on site, to providing evaluation materials at the end of the campaign. Ellie was with us every step of the way and was attentive to all of our queries throughout; we would certainly endeavour to work with St. Patrick’s Festival again in future​.'
