We’re in Portland for the National Sports Forum next week and we’re totally hyped to be catching up with old friends while making new contacts and connections. The Sports Forum is the largest gathering of top team sports marketing, sales, promotions and event entertainment executives of the year. That means there are some top talents in the room, and that’s a recipe for the kind of creative partnerships we thrive on. Whether it’s backing an International ad campaign, amping up a 12th-Man hype video, or soundtracking the beautiful vistas of a killer snowboard film, our creative solutions are used to bring the energy, passion, and camaraderie of professional sports to life. So when we touch down in Portland we’re going to be with our people!
With the summer fast approaching and our thoughts turning to the big event of the year in Brazil, we can’t wait to hear what guest speaker Vin Lananna, 2016 Olympic Head Coach for Men’s Track & Field and President of TrackTown USA, has to say.
We’re also really looking forward to meeting Brent Schoeb, Vice-President Corporate Partnerships for the San Francisco 49-ers, one of our many NFL clients. Brent will be holding a session discussing sponsorship opportunities within the Fantasy Sports market. As a huge growth market, it’s something we really want to learn more about.
Keep your eye out for our main man Ian who will be in attendance. Make sure to drop him a line at IanP@firstcom.com to arrange a meet-up
This is going to be a great trip!
