Last month, LeagueApps held another Partner Event in our NYC Office. We held 3 Partner Days last year, so wanted to switch it up by by hosting our 1st-ever Partner Night!
Most of the partners in attendance were local, although some traveled quite the distance to be with us. Jason of Kickball365 came all the way from Harrisburg, PA to spend the evening with us. Norma Jean of Baltimore Adult Soccer League drove up for her 2nd Partner event, bringing her enthusiasm and finest Maryland craft beer. We know her trip was especially worthwhile because she won the iPad Mini raffle!
Partner Night was a bit different from our previous Partner Events. Instead of holding a structured agenda filled with presentations, we decided to create a more relaxed environment that allowed for networking, more conversations, and hopefully fun!
We realized that both structured sessions and social networking events are helpful to our partners for similar reasons:
- Find value in connecting with other like-minded partners
- Direct access to the LeagueApps team
- Strengthens the LeagueApps community
Members of eleven different sports organizations attended the event on January 8th (now totaling 40+ partners who have attended a LeagueApps Partner Event!). The full lineup included:
Next week, LeagueApps will be sponsoring and attending the 2014 Sport & Social Industry Conference in Fort Lauderdale, from February 19-21. We are very much looking forward to getting some sun and meeting up with a bunch of our partners!
We’re planning on also holding more LeagueApps Partner Days this year and will experiment with different formats. Let us know if you have any thoughts or ideas on ways to plan our upcoming Partner Days, or which city we should host our next event! We’ll keep you posted on our plans.
