about us

We don’t create brands, we reveal them.

Live Event Sponsorship is the passion of Green Cactus! 

Green Cactus is comprised of event, marketing, and sales professionals with a combined total of over 100 years of experience.  We know how to work with live events and brands to maximize their partnerships.

With our proven track record, let us be the ones to make sure you’re maximizing your available assets and getting your event in front of the right partners!
