While the NetJets name has been associated with top athletes who play in major competitions around-the-world, major entities such as the PGA and Art Basel, sometimes it’s all about your hometown. To that end, The National Hockey League’s Columbus Blue Jackets and NetJets announced yesterday the renewal of a multiyear partnership that is highlighted by naming rights to the Suite Level at Nationwide Arena. The newly branded elements of the NetJets Suite Level were unveiled to fans during Friday’s season-opening game as the Blue Jackets hosted the New York Islanders.
“Central Ohio’s corporate leaders reside on Nationwide Arena’s suite level. As a corporate pillar of Columbus, NetJets is the perfect brand to complement the suite-holder experience in this prestigious area of the arena,” said Ryan Shirk, Blue Jackets Vice President of Corporate Partnerships in a press release. “NetJets will be prominently featured throughout the arena and the suite level on various forms of traditional, directional signage as well as the signature NetJets Lounge Bar.”
“As a part of the Columbus community for over 50 years, our partnership with the Columbus Blue Jackets is an ideal way to continue engaging with our community and rewarding our team members. We’re very excited to kick off this season with our favorite hockey team,” said Patrick Gallagher, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the jet card and fractional share seller.
