We are big fans of the Canucks and to have our word mark in front of the player’s bench is very exciting.
Vancouver, B.C. (PRWEB) October 8, 2010
Rhino Marketing Inc., one of North America’s leading Internet marketing agencies, has signed a three-year partnership with Canucks Sports & Entertainment (CS&E). The partnership will see the Rhino.ca logo prominently featured at Rogers Arena with a logo in the ice in front of the Canucks bench and will have a strong in-arena and web based presence on Canucks.com. Rhino Marketing will support increased programming on Canucks.com and Canucks for Kids Fund initiatives.
Rhino Marketing Inc. is the first online marketing company to have an in-ice presence with the NHL. It is also one of the smallest businesses – size wise – to ever partner with the Canucks. The logo of Rhino’s 14-person organization now resides in the ice alongside mega-companies such as Rogers, Best Buy, and Mike’s Hard Lemonade. Rhino Marketing is approaching the partnership with innovative and creative thinking, including becoming the first company in the history of the franchise to sponsor the Canucks for Kids Fund 50/50 program. Rhino Marketing has committed its resources to support a number of Canucks charitable initiatives as part of the relationship, including the Jake Milford Golf Tournament and other fan interaction events.
Rhino Marketing’s Chief Rhino Doug Morneau explains: “We are big fans of the Canucks and to have our word mark in front of the player’s bench is very exciting. Apart from seeing this as a great marketing opportunity for Rhino, as strong supporters of charitable and philanthropic efforts, we feel that this provides an exceptional opportunity to partner with the Canucks to raise money for worthwhile local organizations.”
“Canucks Sports and Entertainment is proud to partner with a company that is focused on giving back to their community,” said Trent Carroll, Canucks Executive Vice President, Sales and Service. “Rhino Marketing has taken ownership of a number of programs to further interact with fans across British Columbia. Through this relationship, not only will Canucks.com be able to provide further programming and insight of the team to fans but will also support the Canucks for Kids Fund and ultimately charities throughout the province.”
Through this partnership, the Rhino team has many other promotional, fun and unique initiatives planned with the CS&E organization throughout the hockey season. With a three-year sponsorship in place, there will be many innovative events from Rhino for years to come.
