The 31FSS Marketing Department at Aviano Air Base provides marketing and publicity support for base-wide events and for all 31st Force Support Squadron facilities and activities, in addition to program planning, evaluation, market research, and surveys.
The Marketing Department showcases FSS events to a large base populace (10,000 people), as well as gives marketing support to our Force Support Squadron mission partners. Military personnel and civilians from as far as Ghedi Air Base and the U.S. Army Garrison in Vicenza participate in some of our popular events. The Marketing Department also supports Moral, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) programs through the Commercial Sponsorship Program.
The Aviano Air Base Commercial Sponsorship Program allows businesses to receive high-quality promotional exposure in exchange for financial assistance, product donations, or services supporting events at Aviano Air Base.
Commercial sponsorship is an excellent way for businesses and other organizations to market their message or products to more than 10,000 people, including military personnel, civilians, local nationals, and their families.
Sponsorship opportunities are available throughout the year in conjunction with monthly on-base events and other special activities. These events range in size and scope, providing engagement opportunities year-round. These events can include travel and outdoor recreational opportunities, fitness activities, youth sports and other programs, military club functions, golf and bowling championships, and air shows.
We also host large annual events, such as Spring into Spring, Independence Day Celebration, Fall Fest, and the Wyvern Wonderland.
