What we do

Research, insights & analytics

Investments in sponsoring and their Return on Investment are important growth and success drivers for our clients. We at IRIS are therefore reviewing sponsoring comprehensively from a 360° perspective.

Our services and the resulting insights are targeting to provide valuable decision support around your sponsoring activities and a solid basis for the successful integration of sponsoring in your corporate communication.

The basis we are building upon is the objective, comprehensive, compliant monitoring and evaluation of all relevant formats in the respective national and international broadcasts and publications.

Based on our long-time industry expertise, we consult clients in the sponsoring selection phase, review sponsoring contracts, deliver media performance documentation, provide optimization proposals for your sponsoring implementation and investigate and analyze perception about your sponsoring impact in the target group.

Based on this platform of services, our innovative approach enables us to determine the contribution of sponsoring to brand performance and sales and to optimize your sponsoring implementation.

We are using all available Media, Market and Consumer Research instruments to integrate and embed sponsoring more successfully in the overall marketing communication strategy of our clients.

Who we are

We are a team of Sponsoring, Media and Research Experts. We take care of your sponsorship!

Our experience and the drive for quality brought us together to optimize Market and Media Research for sponsors, associations, clubs, athletes and media.
