GeoBlue receives numerous sponsorship requests which we evaluate against specific criteria including relevance, brand fit, cost, audience and reach when evaluating the merit of a given sponsorship opportunity. 

In general, GeoBlue seeks to partner with organizations and events that support our commercial sales and marketing objectives and/or our corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy.

Commercial sponsorships should align with our brand purpose – to simplify the international healthcare experience, enable us to reach our target audience(s) and key stakeholders and/or support global mobility and global healthcare.

Non-commercial sponsorships should reinforce our CSR strategy which seeks to improve global healthcare, build healthier communities and/or promote global mobility and cross-cultural exchange. They should also support our CSR pillars as outlined below:

  • Address social determinants of health (SDOH) in our local community
  • Improve global healthcare quality and access
  • Promote global mobility and cross-cultural exchange
  • Global disaster relief

The below criteria have been developed to ensure that GeoBlue establishes sponsorship relationships that will mutually benefit the company and the partnering organization.

  • Relevance – is the event/program/initiative relevant to our products and services? For commercial sponsorships, preference is for events that have a global/international focus, related to health care and/or global mobility. For non-commercial sponsorships, preference is for events local to and/or in support of the community around our King of Prussia HQ location.
  • Brand fit – does the event align with our purpose – to simplify the international healthcare experience for the globally mobile? Is it in line with our company values? Will we gain exposure to our target audiences or an important stakeholder group?
  • Strategic alignment – does the event support our sales and marketing strategy? Our CSR strategy and pillars?
  • Business result – what result or outcome can we expect to achieve through this sponsorship?
