Sponsorship criteria

We receive a large number of sponsorship requests. Each proposal is evaluated fairly against the range of criteria listed below. Check the criteria list to see whether your proposal meets our requirements.


Does the sponsorship's values align with those of MDL which are:

  • Pride - For more than four decades we’ve worked tirelessly towards becoming the industry leading marina group. We’re tremendously proud of all our accomplishments and they allow us to deliver the unique MDL experience to all berth holders, visitors, and commercial partners.
  • Innovation - We are constantly evolving our products and processes to become more efficient, better connected and more inspiring to our customers and partners.
  • Experience - Managers of 19 marinas across the UK and Spain, two holiday parks and a state-of-the-art green gym. Landlords to over 500 businesses on our sites. Our portfolio is the perfect demonstration of our unrivalled expertise.

Target Audience

No-Go Areas

Our brand is very important to us. We won't consider sponsorship opportunities that expose our reputation to risk.


The sponsorship should allow at least two months' lead time for activation.

Current Marketing Strategy

Does the sponsorship fit with MDL’s current strategy?


Does the sponsorship provide rights and allow multiple channel activation?

Exclusivity and Stand-Out

Is MDL the only ‘marina’, ‘holiday park’ or ‘gym’ brand involved?
