SUN ‘n FUN Advertising Opportunities

The SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo is the “start of the aviation/airshow season” in North America. According to many of our exhibitors, SUN ‘n FUN is a “selling” show. Our event is a six-day aviation extravaganza that hosts over 500 aviation exhibitors, sponsors, advertisers and over 500 national and international media representatives.

Many of our guests are interested in new technologies and innovative products and are coming out of a long winter with limited flight time and pent-up buying interests.  We welcome guests from all fifty states and over 80 countries. They come to SUN ‘n FUN because it is the first to find what they are looking for!

SUN ‘n FUN offers a variety of opportunities that impact the “purchase-ready” pilots and aviation enthusiasts who attend each year. The variety of advertising media enables each exhibitor to design a marketing program that will support the investment each has made as an exhibitor at the show and achieve the results they expect.

Please download the 2023 SUN ‘n FUN Advertising Packet, it includes an “Advertising Opportunities & Information” section to this packet. It provides a bit more detail on the products included as well as our current statistics. We hope you will find this information useful when determining your advertising needs for the coming year.

Promote your product throughout the year and during the SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo in several ways, such as the In-Flight Guide, and Expo Map, which are distributed to over 25,000 guests during the week and provide our guests with event information and souvenirs to take home.  Secure an ad panel on our onsite trams and get your advertisement seen from one end of the campus to the other!
