UFC event builds up anticipation

January 31, 2011 by  

Poster printing companies in Milton, Ontario, are no doubt gearing up to help promote the upcoming UFC 129 event that is scheduled to be held on April 30, 2011. The UFC event will be a milestone of sorts as it will mark the first time that the UFC show has come to the province of Ontario. The April 30 show will be held at the Rogers Center, and it will feature a seating capacity of 42,000.

Seating for this inaugural fighting event will attract a premium price, and this will be directly related to where on the floor attendees sit. The prices for floor seating range from $300 for the less desirable seats to a whopping $800 for the premium seats. People who are more economical-minded can elect to stay off the floor altogether and simply sit in the stands. Seating in the stands will run attendees at least $50 for the cheapest seating arrangement and $250 for the most expensive.

Live events that UFC puts on are generally highly exciting with the frenetic energy of the crowd oftentimes enough to get attendees’ pulse rates pumping harder. For those in the audience that have are not as close to the ring as they would like to be, they can follow the action blow-by-blow courtesy of the stadium’s Jumbotron screen.
Fans of the sport will have no doubt seen promotional posters advertising the event, and may want to use the services of a banner printing company in or around Milton to take along a banner in support of their favourite athlete.

Local beer company stymied by advertising rates

January 31, 2011 by  

Banner and poster printing companies in New Westminster, B.C., are well placed to help promote community events that a local beer company is sponsoring. The Russell Brewing Company, from nearby Surrey, is now more focused than ever on sponsoring events in the Vancouver region that are community-based. These are things like soccer games, football games, and rugby games.

Only four short years ago, the Russell Brewing Company was at the forefront of what it believed to be a beer revolution when it partnered with the province’s resident Canadian Football League team, the B.C. Lions. That was then. In 2009, however, the brewing company ended their contract with the football team when the Lions moved out of their stadium, which was located at B.C. Place Stadium.

Being only a small brewery with yearly sales of $10 million, the beer company was unable to compete with bigger companies who wanted to advertise in a glitzier and reborn stadium downtown. According to Russell’s CEO, one Brian Harris, advertising in the new downtown stadium is just out of their moderate league.

With B.C. Place Stadium turning into a venue that cost $600 million, bigger companies who drove up the advertising costs began to get attracted to the prospects of advertising in a brand new, downtown stadium. As such, when the stadium received a commitment to be rebuilt, everything changed for the worse for Russell.

Still, Harris is not ruling out any future contracts with the B.C. Lions.

With the Lions looking for a new sponsorship deal, whatever the outcome, they will be able to rely on printing services in New Westminster to provide them with brand new corporate stationary, posters and banners.

Small businesses more prone to hardship if founders fall ill

January 28, 2011 by  

Small catalog printing companies in Red Deer, Alberta, will face challenges at keeping up their day-to-day business operations if any of their founders suddenly come down with a prolonged illness. While said catalog printing companies offer great services, their brain trust is often invested in only one person.
