  • ADVERTISING - REVENUE Advertisers pay a certain $ amount based on how large of an ad they put into the event program. Sometimes, this $ is far beyond what the organization needs to break even on the cost of publishing the program. People are NOT motivated to buy a program because of the ads that appear on the inside. However, this could be accomplished by including sweepstakes numbers for prize drawings.
  • Slide 3
  • ADVERTISING - REVENUE
  • Slide 4
  • The team is promoted thru the athlete profiles, statistics, rules, and photos in the program. Because a program containing ads usually has more pages, it will actually cost more to print. However, the revenue generated from the ads can help to cover the printing costs.
  • Slide 5
  • PROGRAMS Fans use the program during the game and often take it home, particularly if it contains special features or is the program for a special event such as the Super Bowl. When fans take home programs, they become promotional tools because they remind fans of the team and encourage them to attend more games.
  • Slide 6
  • PROGRAMS Therefore, teams usually include information in programs telling fans how to order tickets or become season ticket-holders. The ticket is the printed piece that fans need to gain entry to the game but is not used during the game. Posters are another type of promotional tool; however, they are not used during games. Free samples are not commonly associated with professional sports teams.
  • Slide 7
  • ELECTRONIC BOARDS A stadium uses signage to promote events/activities. The purpose of signage is to communicate messages such as names of teams or sponsors. Electronic boards are a popular type of signage because messages & logos can be changed quickly throughout the event. Also, this type of signage is graphically appealing and encourages spectators to read the messages.
  • Slide 8
  • EVENT SIGNAGE Deciding to place messages and team logos on electronic boards is NOT an example of selecting media usage, sponsorships, or network support.
  • Slide 9
  • INTERIOR OUTFIELD WALL Sponsors want their products in the most visible place possible. By placing a sign on the wall in the outfield, the sponsor gets maximum exposure. All fans in the stadium can see the sign from their seats, and if the baseball game is nationally televised, television viewers see the signage, too.
  • Slide 10
  • REAR ENTRANCE - CONCESSIONS Signs placed at the rear entrance of the stadium or near concession stands will be seen ONLY BY THE ATTENDEES who use that particular entrance or purchase food at concession stands. Depending the scoreboard's design and placement, signs placed on the back of the scoreboard may not be seen by anyone.
  • Slide 11
  • INCREASES BRAND AWARENESS Placing signage in an area that will receive a lot of exposure is more likely to make an impact on viewers. Because television cameras show the baseball outfield each time a baseball player hits a ball in that direction, stadium spectators and television fans are more likely to see the signage on the outfield wall many times.
  • Slide 12
  • INCREASES BRAND AWARENESS Publicity is a message not paid for by the organization that benefits from or is harmed by it. Businesses often pay a lot of money to place signs in prominent areas of the stadium, so the signs are not generating free publicity.
  • Slide 13
  • INCREASES BRAND AWARENESS The repeated message helps increase brand awareness in the minds of the fans. The signage does NOT necessarily lower promotional expenses or ensure higher sales.
  • Slide 14
  • LOGO PLACEMENT RACE CARS Taking advantage of logo placement opportunity means a business strives to expose its logo in the best place in order to maximize repeat or long-term logo exposure.
  • Slide 15
  • LOGO PLACEMENT RACE CARS By placing a logo on the hood/door of a race car, the business is maximizing logo exposure to the race car audience, both inside the racetrack and on television broadcasts of the racing event.
  • Slide 16
  • LOGO PLACEMENT RACE CARS Repetitive or long-term exposure increases the business's chances of making associations with the sport or team and itself. Sponsors often place logos on golf balls, swimsuits, and footwear; however, these logos are usually too small for most spectators to see.
  • Slide 17
  • CELEBRITY APPEARANCE Including celebrities in an event usually adds interest and excitement to the event. Events often hire celebrities to perform during intermissions or half- time periods.
  • Slide 18
  • CELEBRITY APPEARANCE Celebrities may be invited to speak before an event begins or to present an award to an event participant. Events usually publicize the celebrity appearance in advance, which attracts attention and encourages people to attend. The event is capitalizing on the fact that people enjoy seeing celebrities and being where they are. Michael Phelps
  • Slide 19
  • CELEBRITY APPEARANCE Long intermissions usually do not add interest and excitement unless they include entertainment. A dress rehearsal takes place before the event begins. Although sponsors may be recognized during an event, this usually does not add interest and excitement. Tiger Woods
  • Slide 20
  • TRAFFIC JAMS When people have to sit in traffic for a long period of time waiting to get to and from an event, they are less likely to want to turn around and do it again in the future. Public transportation is a solution to the problem because it decreases the number of vehicles on the road, and it provides a convenient way to get to the event without having to find a place to park.
  • Slide 21
  • TRAFFIC JAMS Nearby accommodations encourage repeat visits because people can stay overnight and walk to the fireworks show. Because fireworks shows are free, paying a parking fee of typically less than $15 makes the event a relatively inexpensive form of entertainment that attracts the same people from year to year.
  • Slide 22
  • ADEQUATE FACILITIES Long lines at the women's rest room are very common because women tend to spend almost two more minutes in the rest room than men. Therefore, a stadium designed with a higher female to male ratio of rest rooms is responding to customer expectations for adequate facilities.
  • Slide 23
  • ADEQUATE FACILITIES Aesthetics refer to the things that are visually appealing to the eye, such as the color of the walls and the landscaping at the stadium entrance. Dedicated usage refers to the specific use of the stadium for a sole purposesuch as baseball contests rather rock concerts and firework displays. A response to safety expectations is achieved by doing such things as locating the stadium in a low-crime neighborhood and installing safety rails.
  • Slide 24
  • SAFE ENVIRONMENT Sports facilities have the responsibility to provide fans with a safe environment when they attend events. Fans attend events with the purpose of having an enjoyable experience in an environment that is safe and secure. If a facility does not live up to fans' expectations, the fans often stop attending because they do not want to put themselves or family members in dangerous situations.
  • Slide 25
  • SAFE ENVIRONMENT Therefore, sports facilities usually have policies for dealing with unruly or disorderly people who threaten the safety of others. The sports facility is not in a position to provide a winning experience. Fans usually do not consider sporting events to be learning situations. Fans usually hope for an extraordinary performance rather than an ordinary one. However, the facility is not responsible for the quality of the performance.
  • Slide 26
  • NAME PRONOUNCIATIONS When providing a script for an event announcer, the script writer should identify name pronunciations that might be difficult to read. So the announcer can read the script in a professional, smooth manner, s/he should be given the script in advance to review. The script writer and the announcer should review words or names that have unusual or difficult pronunciations, to make sure the announcer says the word or name correctly during the ceremony.
  • Slide 27
  • NAME PRONOUNCIATIONS To make it easy for the announcer to read the script, the text should be double-spaced, and key points should be bold. It is NOT always appropriate to include a joke when writing the script for an award ceremony.
