Make sure your company name is a “live link” next to the proper material categories. Sponsor a materials guide with your logo. Put your product in our Marketplace section. Or tell your story with a company profile package (see below) that includes all of the above!
Feature Editorial/Photo Content Development
Material Intelligence can help suppliers and fabricators tell their company or product story to the design community. All stories are featured and archived on the Material Intelligence site, and tagged for search by the type of materials and projects involved, as well as by your company name. Further, clients are free to use the content for their own marketing and communication efforts.
Content categories include project case studies, company profiles, and Continuing Education Unit (CEU) features. Company profiles are offered at a special rate, and include a marketplace showcase ad. Contact us for details on editorial and photography services.
Participation in Materials Pavilion Exhibits at Major Designer Events
Material Intelligence created quite a buzz at NeoCon 2010 in Chicago with its Materials Pavilion, in collaboration with Interiors & Sources magazine and THINK:Material.
In 2011, we’re going to turn that buzz into a roar. Both NeoCon and IIDEX have gotten behind the Materials Pavilion concept, and feedback from attendees is helping us hone the concept for greater impact. We’re exploring the possibility of taking the Pavilion to other major design shows in 2011; your feedback is welcome!
Don’t miss these great opportunities to make a direct connection with working specifiers.
Sponsorship of ‘Material Buzz’ E-blasts to 5,000+ Specifiers
New for 2011, Material Intelligence will be publishing and distributing “Material Buzz” e-blasts to thousands of A&D specifiers, as well as to the value-added decorative surfacing industry.
Our detailed editorial and visual focus on materials featured at industry exhibitions like the International Furniture Fair in Cologne, Germany, Surfaces, GlobalShop, NeoCon and IIDEX has proven popular with interior design specifiers, and will become a regular feature on the new Material Intelligence site.
And, in the spirit of “going where they are,” Material Buzz content will be shared with qualified opt-in lists of interior design specifiers in the form of high-impact e-blast newsletters. Every Buzz will reach at least 5,000 qualified A&D specifiers, driving traffic back to Material Intelligence and sponsor sites. Recipients are drawn from the ever-growing MI database and Interiors & Sources’ subscriber lists.
Support options include sole sponsorships and display ads linking to your site, or to your hosted Supplier Profile for feature stories on Material Intelligence.com.
In-Print Features, Advertorials and CEUs
Yes, Virginia, people still read magazines, but they’re choosier than ever. Save a tree or two by being selective with your print placements.
Share the content you’ve created with the 30,000+ qualified commercial interior designers and architects who read Interiors & Sources magazine by placing it as an advertorial feature alongside special material coverage. Or, collaborate on an in-print CEU for these critical readers.
If you’re looking to reach furniture fabricators, put your message in front of 65,000 of the best qualified fabricator readers in the industry with a full- or half-page advertorial message in the decorative surfacing section Redbook from Wood & Wood Products.
