The ICANNWiki Playing Cards are a fun take on our recognizable caricatures, with each card displaying the caricature a member of the ICANN Community. Suits are often (loosely) themed, for example with Diamonds representing our Sponsors or Spades representing the ICANN Board and Staff.
Playing Cards Sponsor
Being the Playing Card Sponsor is one of the special sponsorship opportunities that we currently offer. These highly visible opportunities are largely offered to our Platinum Sponsors, who enjoy top placement on all ICANNWiki material. Platinum sponsorship and the special sponsorship opportunities contribute to our continued, enthusiastic participation at all three annual ICANN conferences. At these events we have an official booth space that is used to educate newcomers about our site, update the articles of established ICANN attendees, and hand out our popular giveaways.
The Playing Card Sponsor has their logo exclusively featured on one side of the playing card box as well as throughout deck. The playing cards themselves are a fun extension of our recognizable caricatures, which we create for ICANN attendees as a thank you for opting into our system. Each card features a different caricature, and the decks are unique to a conference. Platinum Sponsors also enjoy the added benefit of seeing their company's representatives included as faces within the deck! We welcome the opportunity to personalize the decks with an interested sponsor, creating a product that features caricatures, facts, contacts, and logos relevant to the sponsor. These decks are distributed at our booth, and have previously been called the best giveaway at an ICANN conference. At previous ICANN conferences we distributed 1,000 individual playing card decks to the ICANN participants in attendance. We could also produce decks for an interested Platinum sponsor for them to distribute via their representatives or at their own booth.
The current examples display logos of all of our sponsors for the Singapore 2011 and Dakar 2011 shows. Becoming the Playing Card Sponsor would mean replacing that group of logos with a large, high-quality version of your logo.
Note: Participation as Playing Cards Sponsor is on a first-come, first-serve basis. The current Playing Cards Sponsor is Neustar. Other high-level sponsorship opportunities include prominent placement on our printed caricatures, our map illustrations, and placement on individual, high-trafficked pages on the ICANNWiki site. We are excited to develop other giveaways with an interested sponsor.
