Autumn Moon>


Sponsorship Opportunities

This unique event provides a terrific opportunity for your corporation to gain maximum exposure on a local, national and international level. By participating as a sponsor, you will reach a wide selection of emerging and niche markets, which include the Chinese American and Asian American markets, the New York City tourism market, metro area consumers and china. Absolutely no other event in New York provides direct access to these important consumer segments like the Chinatown Autumn Moon Festival Ceremony.



New York City's Chinatown is the largest Chinese community in the Western Hemisphere and located in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Manhattan. Founded in the late 1870's by Chinese immigrants, Chinatown offers a unique historical and cultural experience not found anywhere else in the world. Possessing over 40 square miles and inhabited by 150,000+ residents, Chinatown is also the biggest neighborhood in all of Lower Manhattan.


Asian Americans

Within the last decade, Chinatown has become a hub for the tri-state area's 4.5 million Asian American community. On any given day, you will see Asian Americans from diverse backgrounds, (i.e. Korean, Japanese, Filipino, Vietnamese, Thai) converging in Chinatown to purchase Asian groceries or enjoying a family meal. In recent years, Asian Americans have been heralded as the next breakthrough consumer segment by marketers across the country as they are the fastest growing minority group (6x the national average) and possess the highest median income (60% have income over $50,000) and education (37% have a bachelors degree or higher) among all ethnic groups.


Chinatown Tourism Market

Chinatown attracts over 20 million local, domestic and international tourists each year. This market is rapidly increasing due to the development of local bus lines to and from major cities like Boston, Washington DC and Philadelphia, which are making Chinatown more accessible than ever. Chinatown is also at the center of many high profile tourist destinations including Ground Zero, the South Street Seaport, Little Italy, Tribeca and SoHo.



New York's Chinatown has long been a gateway into the American market for China-based companies and brands.? With global interest in the Chinese market at an all-time high, many domestic corporations are now looking towards Chinatown as a threshold into China. This is not surprising when you consider the facts: (1) a large percentage of Chinatown residents travel to China on a regular basis, (2) most Chinatown residents call China on a weekly basis, (3) Chinatown is a must-see destination for Chinese expatriates and tourists, and (4) Chinatown-based newspapers work closely with their main bureaus in Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai.
