It is very common for CJLO to sponsor events through visibility exchanges in which advertising time and web visibility on behalf of CJLO is exchanged for visibility on flyers, posters, and other promotional materials from the partner in question. We are open to whatever you might propose, however, sponsorships and exchanges must be discussed with us directly.

CJLO also offers DJ services at very reasonable rates, depending on the event, location, time and DJ requested.
