Themed attractions and trade show expert Global Experience Specialists (GES), in partnership with legendary ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau and respected water-sports company Body Glove, announced sponsorship opportunities for an in-development, educational touring exhibition, Ocean Explorers. Levels of participation include Partner, Sponsor, and Supplier, and will include multi-year and multi-dimensional alliances with the exhibition and the creators. For more information, please contact Lisa O’Keefe, director of partner development for GES, at email@example.com.
Ocean Explorers is expected to attract nearly 2 million visitors during a five-year, 15-market tour, and generate in excess of 200 million impressions in leading national, regional and local media. All levels of participation will receive recognition with official designation on promotional materials, including websites, banners, billboards, at-venue signage, and customized press kit materials.
“Any organization that supports conservation and education can benefit from this sponsorship, by being part of an extraordinary and historic exhibition dedicated to ocean education, preservation and protection,” said Eddie Newquist, chief creative officer for GES. “It’s our goal to drive environmental awareness in a fun and interactive way to people all over North America—through schools and communities—in an effort to encourage visitors to take action in their own neighborhoods.”
Through Ocean Explorers’ unique interactive elements, guests can learn how ocean ecosystems are interconnected with all life on Earth. Visitors are reminded of the immense beauty, power and fragility of the waters encircling the planet, and are inspired to protect the world’s greatest natural resource and make a difference in their communities—a difference that can impact our planet for generations.
Guests can take a virtual journey in a deep-sea submersible to a depth of 11,000 meters into the deepest corners of the ocean. In addition to learning about environmental awareness and protection, visitors can also gain an understanding of key oceanographic concepts such as density, pressure, buoyancy, temperature, and gravity waves. The role of technology and breakthrough advancements that paved the way for extreme underwater exploration are also presented, including Jacques Cousteau’s invention of the Aqualung and Body Glove’s innovative wetsuit designs.
“This exhibit will give guests a unique opportunity to have fun, to be entertained, to make discoveries and take on ocean adventures,” says Jean-Michel Cousteau, president of Ocean Futures Society.
Tomorrow, November 14, 2012, at the DEMA Show in Las Vegas at the Sands Expo Center, Jean-Michel Cousteau and representatives from Body Glove and GES will discuss the exhibition and host a Q&A panel at the Body Glove booth. They will also unveil a never-before-exhibited historic artifact important to the Cousteau and Body Glove partnership, which will be featured inside the exhibition for the duration of the tour.
