Fans get chance to win prizes as GAC renews sponsorship
HOUSTON – November 6, 2012 – GAC, the world’s leading provider of integrated solutions to the logistics, shipping and marine industry, has marked the renewal of its sponsorship of the National Basketball Association (NBA) Houston Rockets by offering fans the chance to test their general knowledge and win prizes.
The sponsorship renewal includes enhanced visibility of GAC’s Houston-based oil & gas logistics division throughout the Toyota Center. The GAC name and logo will be showcased on the eagerly awaited new video board, the largest ever to be constructed in a U.S. sports arena, as well as on the “L-bar” of the 300 newly-installed HD flat screen televisions throughout the arena.
GAC kicks off the season by introducing a new feature, the GAC Trivia Game, where selected fans and season ticket holders will be invited down to half court during games to compete for prizes by correctly answering GAC trivia questions. The questions will be displayed on screens throughout the arena, including the main 25′ high by 58′ wide video board.
GAC Executive Vice President, William Hill, says: “We are delighted to extend our support of the Houston Rockets. By connecting with Rockets’ fans in a very real way, we hope to further demonstrate our commitment to the energy sector that drives the city and the ways in which GAC can support that industry and the people who work in it.”
