The Red Arrows Tour of North America will encompass 18 major North American air shows from New York to San Francisco, Toronto to Vancouver, tens of millions of Americans and Canadians will be able to see the Red Arrows in real life, performing their awe-inspiring manoeuvres and demonstrating their world-renowned acrobatics.

There will also be over 100 activations throughout the tour including on the ground engagement with Red Arrows personnel at business, VIP and educational STEM events.

At a hugely important time in the UK’s history, we are looking for partners who share our ambition to position the UK as a global partner for world markets, a force for good, and an open, welcoming nation of people. This is a unique and high-profile opportunity to partner with the Department for International Trade and the Red Arrows to put your business at the forefront of Global Britain.

There’s a range of opportunities to get involved with the tour – from sponsorship to partnership to endorsement- and your brand can be alongside ours for the event of the summer.
