Top sporting events for corporate entertaining in 2020

December 4, 2019 | Posted in News

Since the majority of us are unable to rely on fresh air and sunshine to drive corporate event attendance in the winter, it’s critical that we take advantage of the one winter activity that continues to excite millions of Americans daily. Sports. Whether a professional football game with 60,000 fans in attendance or a nostalgia-filled college basketball game, sporting events are an easy way to excite and entertain your clients in even the harshest of weather conditions. In addition to mixing business with pleasure, sporting events help facilitate meaningful conversation, boost face time and leave a lasting impression that will help you remain relevant throughout the year.

It’s a safe bet that both fans and nonfans are longing for a chance to grab a jersey (make an even bigger impact and buy them a jersey before the game!), enjoy some refreshments and cheer on their local team without dipping into their own pockets. However, with numerous teams, tournaments and playoffs all taking place at once, it’s difficult to track down what games will resonate best with your target audience.  To help sort through the chaos and ensure your stand out against the competition, brush up on the variety of sporting events that will help you drive sales pipeline and score big in the new year.
