From the desk of Elizabeth D’Aurora, Coordinator of Communications and Client Relations:
The mission of Erie Events is to provide world-class convention facilities and entertainment venues throughout the region to visitors and residents, their families and friends. Erie Events strives to present a diverse selection of performing arts and sporting events enjoyable not just to residents of our own community, but also to meeting and convention visitors, travelers and vacationers. Our venues, including the Bayfront Convention Center, Erie Insurance Arena, Warner Theatre and UPMC Park saw more than 951,000 patrons at all venues in 2016.
You have the opportunity to advertise your brand in front of thousands of people at two of Erie Events premiere facilities – the Erie Insurance Arena and the Bayfront Convention Center. These two buildings alone saw more than 635,000 people in 2016, with 389,731 at the Arena and 245,306 through the doors at the Bayfront Convention Center. Concourse advertising through Erie Events is ideal for small to medium sized businesses who have a modest advertising budget. This opportunity provides local advertisers the chance to spread the word about their business in front of thousands of people with a variety of interests, needs and wants. With world-class entertainment events and great sports action, the Arena and BCC welcome a wide range of demographics in Erie, Crawford and Venango counties in Pennsylvania, as well as Ashtabula County in Ohio and Chautauqua County in New York.
At the Erie Insurance Arena, 14 monitors located above the concession stands will feature your ad approximately 50 times or more per event. At the Bayfront Convention Center, three monitors located throughout the main hallway will feature your ad and/or video commercial (without audio) that runs daily in a continuous loop. There are also backlit signs available at the Erie Insurance Arena for advertisers to display their brand. These signs are visible at every event in the Arena, including graduations, concerts, family shows, sporting events, etc. Contracts run on an annual basis.
