Partnership Guide


Are you interested in bringing MOGA to your town? The event is flexible and we can work with you to see if it will fit! Check out the information guide and contact us.


Every organization has its own unique goals to hit, and because of this, we do not offer set sponsorship prices/packages. We custom craft each sponsorship opportunity to be the best fit for everyone. Connect with us and lets explore working together!

Vendor Booths

This is for businesses that would be generally be considered a shop or merchant.

  • Required to donate $200 (retail value) worth of products that will be used in the Give-Away.
  • If there is a cost associated with the use of tables or space, the vendor is required to pay this cost.
  • Any merchandise that you plan to sell that could conflict, be mistaken for, or coincide with branding, logos, designs, or theme of the event or associated activities must be pre-approved to make sure they will not conflict with event swag.

Info Booths

This is for Community Supporting Organizations, Example: Geocaching Clubs, Bloggers, YouTubers, GeoTrails, GeoTours, other MEGAs, etc.

  • Donation of product is appreciated but not required for the Give-Away.
  • If there is a cost associated with the use of tables or space, the vendor is required to pay this cost.
  • If you plan to fundraise, it must be approved before the event.

Brand Policy

Why do we need a Brand License Policy?

That is a good question, to put it in plain English:

Events are expensive to put on, and unfortunately, there are vendors in the community that has historically tried to take advantage of events and sell merchandise that gains them personal profit, without supporting the event. When the event loses this support we must make a choice to shut down or increase the cost to participants.

Please help support the event by only purchasing items that have been officially approved.

Personal Tags

Tag customers, read before you buy.

Tag companies are a for-profit business, even if it is believed “if the items are given not sold it is permitted” is not valid as the tag business does make a profit.

We only work with tag makers that have a give-back program, the approved tag makers are:

• GC Mini / GC Tags
• PathTags (coming soon, please wait for tag back option)

Are you a tag maker? Want to be added to this list?  Contact us, information is available at the bottom of this document.
