If you are a business that would like to align your brand with an audience that deeply cares about the future of Louisville, we can help.
Insider Louisville hosts events throughout the year in which we cover cornerstone topics to inform readers and foster community engagement. By supporting these events, you support Insider Louisville’s nonprofit newsroom and our community.

Held quarterly, these formal programs – speakers, presentations, and panel discussions – are centered around issues relating to Insider Louisville’s main areas of editorial coverage: culture, economy, education, government, and health. In 2018, Cornerstone Conversation topics have included public education, high technology in the local economy, and public safety and the city budget. These events bring Insider Louisville readers together with local leaders and experts for detailed, action-oriented discussions about key community issues. Contact us today about sponsorship opportunities.
Potential event marketing exposure: 500,000+ impressions.
Expected attendance: 100-250.
At these monthly events, attendees join Insider Louisville writers and notable community members for lively discussions of local issues. The topics are less time-sensitive, instead highlighting ongoing issues (downtown development) and local industries (music & entertainment, the craft beer scene). Mostly held at fun, unique venues around town. Contact us today about sponsorship opportunities.
Potential event marketing exposure: 250,000 impressions.
Expected attendance: 50-75.
These events are guided live discussions with Insider Louisville reporters and community leaders/representatives on of-the-moment issues and stories. We plan and produce them quickly, usually within two weeks or less, because they are tied to a certain news story and cycle. In 2018, a pop-up event included a state legislative review.

Coffee with the Newsroom
At these more intimate monthly events, Insider Louisville members and special guests observe an editorial meeting and have Q & A with reporters and editors. This is a behind-the-scenes experience that illuminates how a local newsroom operates, and provides guests the opportunity to share ideas and reflections with the editorial staff. Contact us today about sponsorship opportunities.
Expected attendance: 15-20 premium members.
