Hiitting High Notes: Spend On Performing Arts, Orchestras To Top Record $1B

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

March 15, 2018: Performing arts organizations, symphony orchestras and other arts organizations in North America are hearing what must be music to their ears when it comes to securing corporate sponsorship, with half of the notes being played by Bank of America.

Sponsorship spending in those categories is expected to top $1B for first time, reaching a projected $1.03 billion in 2018.

That would be a 3.7% increase from the $993 million sponsor spend in 2017 and representing the largest year-over-year increase since 2006, according to research and consulting firm ESP Properties, Chicago.

ESP expects North American sponsorship spending to see and even larger year-over-year increase in 2018, projected to grow 4.5% in 2018 following the 3.6% in 2017.

“The increased spend is largely due to the rebound in overall sponsorship spending rather than any specific factors,” according to ESP Properties.

Sponsor spend for performing arts organizations, symphony orchestras and other arts organizations in North America has seen a slow but steady rise over the past few years, from $923 million in 2014, $939 million in 2015 and $962 million in 2016.

Banks are the most active category sponsoring the arts, as they have been in recent years.

Banks are eight times more likely to sponsor the arts than the average of all categories, according to ESP Properties.

Bank of America maintains its status as the most active sponsor.

According to ESP data, Bank of America sponsors 50% of arts organizations with a sponsor in the bank category.

We partner with dozens of cultural organizations yearly,” offers Bank of America on its sponsorship Web site. “We are a Founding Member of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., Global Sponsor of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and serve as the main sponsor of approximately ten museum exhibitions a year.”

Also among the Top Ten active sponsors were: Wells Fargo (sponsors 38% of  arts organizations with a sponsor in the bank category), U.S. Bank (22%), JPMorgan Chase (21%), Macy’s (19%), PNC Bank (17%), American Airlines (16%), Northern Trust (16%), Exelon (16%), KPMG (15%) and PWC (15%).

Following banks among most active categories were Professional Services (6.9 times more likely to sponsor the arts than the average of all sponsors), Financial Services (3.9), Insurance (2.6), Retail (2.4), Media (2.2), Tech (1.7), Real Estate (1.5), Utilities (1.5) and Airlines (1.4).

Looking at 2018, projected shares of North American sponsorship market will be led by sports (70%), entertainment (10%), causes (9%), Arts (4%), festivals-fairs-annual events (4%) and associations-membership organizations (3%).
