Wings Over Illawarra is a unique, exciting, popular and well located airshow that grown significantly over the last few years is poised for further growth in 2020 and beyond. Sponsoring Wings Over Illawarra can help you build your organisation’s brand, connect with target markets, and attract attention from a growing audience - all while being associated with a source of enjoyment.

With the endless array of marketing options available, deciding how to get the best value from your marketing dollar can be challenging. But when it comes to connecting with target markets, influencing stakeholders or engaging employees, nothing provides deeper and longer lasting connections than a well chosen and leveraged event sponsorship.

In human history few quests have captured imaginations, stirred passions, fostered creativity and inspired innovation like man’s desire to fly. Today the miracle of flight continues to bring people together from all walks of life - provoking amazement, passion, curiosity, and investment.

Broad Demographic

An event such as Wings Over Illawarra is more than just an airshow, encompassing many aspects of the aviation industry. The event appeals to a very broad audience via its ability to showcase the latest drone technology and flight simulation developments through to recreational and general aviation pursuits and of course the finest military and historic aircraft displays.

Wings Over Illawarra appeals to five key visitor segments with attendees range from:

  • Senior citizens basking in the nostalgia of vintage aircraft,
  • Affluent ‘baby boomers’ enjoying their passion for aviation and adventure,
  • Young families sharing positive experiences,
  • Teenagers dreaming of an aviation career,
  • Pilots and aviation industry members.

Whatever market you’re targeting, sponsoring Wings Over Illawarra can help you connect with it.

Sydneysiders love big events and Sydney’s event calendar is as diverse as it is plentiful; offering everything from concerts, festivals and culture to cricket, football and car racing.

Yet, there remains one event missing…

One event that stirs passions, captures imaginations and excites people like no other.
One event that is unique, spectacular and appealing to all generations, genders and backgrounds.
One event that Sydneysiders have had to travel long distances at great expense to enjoy ... until now.

That event is an airshow.

Sydney’s busy airspace and heavily populated suburbs make a metropolitan air show impossible, but Sydneysiders have a first class air show right on their doorstep - just a short drive or easy train ride away.

From humble beginnings as a local volunteer-run community event, Wings Over Illawarra has grown to become a fully-fledged commercial airshow. It attracts Australia’s most popular aircraft and aerobatic pilots to offer air and ground displays that outstrip most airshows across Australia and New Zealand. With the addition of The NSW Drone Expo, Oz Flight Sim Expo and a General Aviation Precinct to the already outstanding list of attractions, Wings Over Illawarra is set to increase its footprint and awareness in the Sydney and NSW markets and in 2020 will give you the chance to build your brand in partnership with Sydney’s only airshow.

Wings Over Illawarra is ready for take-off in the Sydney market, giving you the chance to build your brand in partnership with Sydney’s next big event. Don’t let this opportunity fly by!
