Last Call for Sponsors for Lights at Lafarge Winter Lights Display

by Katya Irwin |

COQUITLAM, BC, Nov. 2, 2017 – Businesses interested in gaining exposure to more than 100,000 people during Coquitlam's Lights at Lafarge Winter Lights Display have one week left to sign up as corporate partners.

The City is inviting a limited number of businesses to come on board as partners for this hugely popular event, which is already generating positive media exposure.

This much-loved event was a resounding success last year and garnered enthusiastic feedback throughout the community and beyond.

The final deadline to join the City as a corporate partner is Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017. As a partner, your business will have the opportunity to build positive relationships with new or existing customers throughout the community. Your company will be recognized in ads, event posters, the City’s website and other promotional materials.

Each lights partner will have the opportunity to host a “Night at the Lights,” which involves on-site presence such as leading an activity or themed walking tour of the lights, handing out appropriate giveaways, or leading caroling.

Partners already on board include HSBC and the Port of Vancouver, which are sponsoring themed zones throughout the display. Our media partners include Vancouver blogger Miss 604 and the Tri-City News.

This year's event will be bigger and brighter than ever before, with hundreds of thousands of lights wrapping their way around the 1.2-km circuit trail looping Lafarge Lake in Coquitlam's Town Centre Park. It's a free, family-friendly night out with easy access from SkyTrain, offering easy access for visitors throughout Metro Vancouver.

Event highlights:

  • More than 100,000 visits to the display
  • Very positive public response
  • Most participants visited more than once
  • 4 out of 10 visitors were from outside Coquitlam
  • Runs from Nov. 25 to Jan. 21, 2018
  • Easily accessed by SkyTrain
