Our client hosts an international marketing networking event cleverly disguised as a softball tournament. Elevate Brand Marketing provides our global sourcing, production and distribution expertise needed to execute this event year after year.
Diamond Ad Ventures began hosting a softball tournament among advertising agencies more than 30 years ago and members of Elevate’s executive team have been attending for 25 years.
The event expanded to include marketing, advertising, promotions and media executives from around the world with average annual attendance of 350+.
Each year the event is held in a different location in an upscale resort-style hotel. Participation in the event includes softball, on and off-site parties, lodging and networking events.
In 2000 Elevate began a successful partnership with Diamond Ad Ventures that continues today.
Our team provides the design, sourcing and production of all of the branded merchandise including souvenir t-shirts, participant gifts, championship medals and MVP awards.
