Corporate Sponsorship

Sponsorships at the Mann Center offer visibility, promotion, and access. The Mann annually hosts the world-renowned Philadelphia Orchestra and a wide variety of pop, jazz, dance, rock, and contemporary artists in a beautiful outdoor setting. This broad array of entertainment attracts audiences from all backgrounds, interests, and ages.

With an annual attendance of 150,000, the Mann Center provides an opportunity for branding and marketing to these diverse audiences. The Mann’s park setting also provides a relaxed and casually elegant backdrop for dinner prior to fabulous evenings of entertainment, and thus a unique alternative to other summer entertainment options in the region.

Corporate opportunities for support include sponsorships of individual concerts and/or a series of concerts, special events, and product specific opportunities. In addition, companies may choose to provide important support to the Mann’s extensive education and community engagement initiatives.

Companies of all sizes are invited to join Corporate Partners to engage with other area companies in activities to support the Mann and open the door to the Mann experience.
