No, Recess doesn’t charge Universities a fee to list their events.
After you upload your event information, brands then have the opportunity to search events. Brands will then select the events that are the best fit for them and send a sponsorship offer for you to review and choose to accept or deny.
If you receive an offer, you will receive a notification on your Recess account, as well as an email notification.
After you have uploaded your event, it generally takes 4 weeks until you start to receive sponsorship opportunities.
Absolutely! By becoming a Recess partner you are under no obligation to have your sponsorships provided exclusively through Recess. In fact, if you are able to introduce us to another Brand or University that we are not currently with and we are able to onboard them, we will PAY YOU a REFERRAL FEE!
From Alienware’s mobile gaming truck that allows students to live stream themselves playing unreleased games, to a 3D Photo Booth, Free Food Trucks, and much more - the options are endless! We strive to bring sponsorship opportunities that not only help financially, but also enhance your event by providing additional activities, items, and experiences for your attendees to enjoy!
