Hanscom Force Support Squadron: Delivering vital programs and services to sustain & support today's total force. From acquiring new customers to developing long-term relationships, Commercial Sponsorship and advertising programs on Hanscom can provide the ideal platform for reaching our diverse market with 8.4 billion in annual buying power.
Programs, promotions and special events are vital to the Air Force mission and contribute to recruitment and retention of the world’s greatest Air Force. These programs provide for the physical, cultural, and social needs and general well-being of military members and their families. Promotions and events contribute to a strong community that turns Air Force bases into hometowns for our mobile military population. Although Hanscom is a gated installation, our reach of consumers extends into the local communities of Bedford, Lexington, Burlington, Billerica and beyond. Our Fitness & Sports Center, Swimming Pool, Minuteman Commons, Hanscom Lanes and Aero Club play host to many on base community activities. Our “out of gate” activities include the Patriot Golf Course, FamCamp and Fourth Cliff Recreation area (located in Scituate).
Through commercial sponsorship, brands can sustain marketing messages over the course of the year, provide for sales campaigns and allow for awareness, trial and usage of new products. In exchange for financial and in-kind support of these programs, we are able to provide our sponsors and advertisers publicity through a variety of media channels, recognition on promotional materials, interactive opportunities and a guarantee of product category exclusivity.
All promotions are heavily advertised through a variety of media channels to include print, collateral materials, digital signage, web sites, base papers, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube videos, press releases, AF leadership briefings and more.
