Opportunities for Businesses

NewfStock is a huge gathering of supporters of Newf Friends Newfoundland Dog Rescue (a division of HART) and the 3 day event draws hundreds of dog lovers from across Canada and the US. The main event is on Saturday, Sept 17, 2016 in Millennium Park, Bancroft.

There are many opportunities for area businesses to benefit from this event.
  • Promote your business for free in our welcome package:  We're putting together welcome packages for attendees, many of whom are coming from out of town and staying 3 or more days in Bancroft. Welcome packages will be distributed to all attendees who check into the hotel and to everyone who visits the welcome booth at Millennium Park on Sept 17.  
  • If you'd like to offer a discount or special deal for NewfStock attendees let us know the details and we'll include that in our package.  Email us at newf.friends@gmail.com
  • If you have product samples, vouchers, coupons or brochures to share please drop them off to Sandra at West Wind Gallery & Gifts by the end of August 2016 (please bring a minimum of 250 - more if you want everyone who comes to the park to get one).
  • Set up a booth: Do you have products or services that you think will be of interest to our attendees?  Consider setting up a booth at NewfStock. Contact us with the details about the product or services you offer to see if you're eligible to set up a booth.  Email us at newf.friends@gmail.com
  • Offer a demonstration or seminar:  Are you able to run a seminar or do a live demonstration that may be of interest to our attendees?  Contact us with details and we can talk further.  Email us at newf.friends@gmail.com
  • Donate a raffle or silent auction item:  Our raffle and auction booths are always a popular stop for our attendees.  You can promote your business by donating an item for our event.  We will display your donation and include your business information for all to see.  A tax receipt will be issued for your kind donation.  Many of our auction items are posted online for advance bidding and will be viewed by thousands of our followers and supporters - a great way to reach out of town customers.
  • Suggest another way you can get involved!  If you have an idea about how you would like to participate in NewfStock, let us know.  Email us the details at newf.friends@gmail.com
