Midcontinent Communications Named First Signature Partner

2/10/2014

The City of Sioux Falls has reached an agreement with Midcontinent Communications to be the first official Signature Partner sponsor for the new Denny Sanford PREMIER Center, Sioux Falls Convention Center, and Sioux Falls Arena.

Midcontinent Communications’ Signature Partnership will provide incredible fan enhancements and is a unique platform to integrate their brand into all aspects of the property.

“These facilities will draw attendance from customers throughout Midcontinent’s footprint, and we are proud to support what will be a first-class attraction,” says Mark Powell, Vice President of Business Solutions at Midcontinent. “We feel it is important to give back to the communities that we serve, and our sponsorship at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center is just another example of that support.”

Midcontinent will be the official provider of public Wi-Fi and business Internet, phone, and television services for the complex. The Signature Partner sponsorship agreement includes a significant presence of Midcontinent’s brand on the center-hung scoreboard, other signage throughout the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center, as well as at the Sioux Falls Arena and the grand ballroom of the Sioux Falls Convention Center (pending City Council approval). The sponsorship agreement is for ten years and has a total package value of $1.6 million.

Sponsorships at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center, Sioux Falls Convention Center, and Sioux Falls Arena will deliver quality exposure to hundreds of thousands of people annually and on a year-round basis. Sponsorship revenue, along with revenue from premium seating sales, will help fund operations in the three facilities.
