Share Our Story


The National Music Centre provides a high-profile platform both locally and nationally for your brand. As Calgary’s first new attraction in 20 years, we anticipate high visitor traffic in the new facility. Our iconic architecture ensures people will take notice! And music is a universal art form – our exhibits and programs will touch people in all regions of Canada.  


Sponsorship is more than logos and signage  (although those are really important) – it’s also about attaching your brand to something that really resonates with your audience in a meaningful way. We’re eager to get creative and develop a tailored suite of benefits that take your brand higher with music.  


We know how to make partnerships really sing! We understand the value of activation and look forward to developing innovative ways to maximize the value you receive from working with the National Music Centre.

Contact Jeni Piepgrass for information on sponsorship opportunities or meet some of our supporters.
