What do you want to tell the thousands of men at The Gathering?

The Gathering continues to grow and grow since we kicked it off in 2011 when 486 men attended. This year we’re, once again, expecting around 2,500 guys to be at The Gathering and the punters love it:

“One word describes my experience of The Gathering ... awesome. I found the whole experience to be faith-confirming, spiritually uplifting and lots of fun.” Stephen, North Yorkshire


1. Sponsor

We’re offering organisations the chance to communicate to our delegates onsite by sponsoring sections of The Gathering or advertising in our printed event programme. A copy goes to everyone onsite. To sponsor any of the below items contact us: admin@cvm.org.uk

2. Advertise

Apply to advertise in our printed programme HERE

3. Exhibit - FULLY BOOKED

Unfortunately we no longer have any exhibition spaces, as they are all now fully booked.

Sponsors, advertisers (and confirmed exhibitors) at The Gathering, will get noticed and awareness of their brand and message will be raised among a large group of proactive (mainly) Christian men.


Stewards Team T-shirt Sponsorship

£700 (sponsor to source and print t-shirts)

£1,500 (CVM to source and print t-shirts)

Our team of stewards are on duty all day from before The Gathering starts until every last delegate has departed on the Sunday. As a sponsor, you will be able to supply each steward team member with their official team t-shirt (x 2) which could include your name and message. (approx no. of stewards = 100).

You can either choose to have us source and print the t-shirts or do it all yourself.

Designs/logos/messages etc are to be agreed by CVM. If sponsor is sourcing and printing the t-shirts, CVM will need to see a sample of quality of t-shirt and print.

Please contact: admin@cvm.org.uk to discuss promotion options.

Five-a-Side Competition and Trophy Sponsorship


This event gets fully booked-up onsite and has a whole bunch of guys competing for the prized trophy. Promotional options could include pitch-side banners, branded medals with your logo, branded t-shirts for the winners, branded bibs, main stage photo opportunity. All branded items are to be supplied by sponsor.

Official Carrier Bag co-Sponsorship

£500 + provision of bags

This is a great opportunity to literally get your message into the hands of, pretty much, all 2,500 delegates. We are offering an organisation the chance to be the main sponsor of all official Gathering carrier bags. CVM will be the only other sponsor. As well as delegate packs, these bags will be used by CVM, as well as our official bookshop, for any resources purchased. You will be required to source, provide and brand the bags including the CVM logo. Sponsors are at liberty to ‘pre-insert’ a leaflet or flyer in each bag, though branding designs and inserts are subject to agreement by CVM first. This will be the only way literature can be given to attendees of The Gathering, other than from official exhibition stands.
