Sponsorship & Advertising

Partnering with MWR onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Fallon puts you in direct contact with more than 15,000 active duty military, reservists, retirees and DoD civilians at their workplaces, home and online. Annually, more than $573 million flows into Churchill, Lyon and Washoe Counties' economy from the military.

Your advertising directly benefits and supports our troops and their families. Your involvement helps MWR provide quality of life events, activities and facilities which greatly enrich the lives of our service members and their families. When you support our military with your advertising messages, you are also building awareness and desirability about your company, product or service.

Contact us today for information on how you can reserve your preferred advertising on theater slides, in our Desert Views Magazine, on banners, posters, countertop signs or our MWR vehicle to start building your brand awareness with Fallon’s military consumers who contribute more than $573 million yearly to the area’s economy. I look forward to your call and the opportunity to partner with you and your company.

Sincerely,

NAS Fallon MWR Marketing

VEHICLE WRAP

Build brand awareness and desirability with this unique and catchy form of advertising. Vehicle wraps are an excellent way to get your company noticed and remembered. The Federal Highway Administration reports that a vehicle outfitted with an advertisement generates thousands of impressions per day.

Transform MWR's vehicle into your company's travelling billboard. Wrapped with your advertisement, it will be seen by up to 3,000 base personnel daily as it delivers MWR's KingPin Pizza to the base enlisted quarters, two student dorms and the Navy Gateway Inns and Suites. Your message will receive up to 90,000 exposures a month and more than one million impressions per year. Compare the monthly cost of a vehicle wrap to newspaper, radio or television advertising and you will realize the minimal cost of a vehicle wrap that advertises your message for a continuous 365 days.

Build brand recognition with everyone who sees your message on MWR's wrapped vehicle and raise your company's profile. Advertiser supplies, installs and removes wrap.
