Advertise with commercial spots during our webcast programs
Each 30-minute episode of Showcase PDX embeds brief commercials. Spots that appear in the weekly broadcast remain in the webcast version for up to one full month! That’s double the impact at one low price! Plus you retain copyright to use these commercials in other venues.
Showcase Program Sponsorships
You’ve heard the announcements at the start of almost everything aired on PBS: “This program is brought to you with the support of …” Showcase PDX offers that same opportunity at the local level, an opportunity for you to show our viewers that you support Portland innovation and the growth of our local economy.
Sponsoring an entire program at at various levels comes with a marketing package that provides value far above your cost. At Showcase PDX, we want our sponsors to receive all the recognition they deserve.
For sponsorship opportunities, please contact our Advertising Department.
Site Advertising Opportunities
ShowcasePDX offers a variety of advertising zones that may be purchased by CPM, by the week or by the month. Our Media and Advertising Kit offers a complete profile on Showcase PDX and its services. To receive your copy, contact us.
Sponsored content is a way to show our audience that you care about a particular issue and want to share your expertise (for example, a chiropractor may want to sponsor a series on back health).
Sponsors work with Showcase PDX editors on the material to be featured, and our editors have final approval of the finished product. Sponsored content cannot directly advertise the sponsor’s business; instead, content sponsors receive logo placement and a web link to their business with a brief description (Example: “Dr James Smith, owner of Back to Health, has been in practice for 12 years and specializes in post-injury recovery”).
Event Sponsorship Opportunities
Showcase PDX reaches beyond the internet. We also produce Showcase Live! and ThirdSpace – events that bring top creative talent to venues around the region. Combining local cuisine, arts and entertainment, ThirdSpace events are more than just a night out -patrons can meet creative innovators and discuss their work one-on-one, and even purchase items. Showcase Live! is our premiere performance series, focused exclusively on local talent.
Sponsoring ThirdSpace and Showcase Live! events is a great way to highlight your involvement with the most exciting cultural events in Portland. These events are hosted every month. Event sponsors receive recognition in a variety of ways, including:
- Logo placements and mention in related advertising and on Showcase PDX
- Press Coverage
Showcase PDX can also custom-craft a sponsorship package that more specifically meets your needs.

Showcase Local Promotions
We understand the importance of buying local. A dollar spent within the community multiplies six times. Showcase wants to help local businesses maximize their exposure at a reasonable cost. One way to do this is by bundling messages into packages and passing on the savings of bulk media buying.
“Showcase Presents” Business Montages are packages of short commercials – 15 to 30 seconds each – presented in 3-minute blocks and aired in local media outlets, including theater screens, broadcast and cable television and video-based websites.
Video, Audio and Web – use the multi-platform power of Showcase PDX to grab new customers and grow your business! For more information on the current Showcase Local Promotion contact ShowcaseLocal.
