Spotlight Awards

Paying homage to Detroit’s rich Motown history, Open Me When and the Detroit Pistons created a branded record player with bluetooth speaker paired with a custom record, pressed locally at Jack White’s Third Man Records. The blue vinyl record features “Sounds of Detroit Basketball”, including in-game commentary, player announcements, and a special message from new Head Coach Dwane Casey. This gift became an instant platinum hit.


 

This year is the 35th anniversary of the Detroit Tigers’ 1984 World Series team. To celebrate, the Tigers contacted a local artist who painted an original image of Tiger Stadium that includes a small banner advertisement above the dugout. The artist replaced the advertiser name with the name of each suite holder to be presented to them as a gift this season. A small plaque at the bottom of each frame signifies that the print is 1 of 1, as each painting is custom to that company or individual.


 

Sacramento Kings suite owners received an unconventional gift to celebrate the 2018-2019 season – an Amazon Alexa and smart speaker branded with their company logos rather than the Kings logo, in an effort to resonate more with top clients. The Alexas were a huge hit. Clients communicated how they appreciated a gift with their branding and use it often. The Kings also created a high-end custom box to house the gift for a wow moment when opening it.

The Minnesota Twins provided premium clients with The Whiskey Box, a dark and handsome solid oak chest with rustic nails and secure storage for a suite holder’s favorite 750mL whiskey bottle, two 8oz heavy-bottomed lowball glasses, two soapstone coasters, and two soapstone whiskey stones to chill drinks without watering them down. At once modern and vintage, this whiskey set will be the artifact grandkids remember standing stately and unassuming.
