The 3rd Annual Partner Summit, hosted by IMG, was held on August 9th at EMU’s .Convocation Center on the main court floor. This year, 20% more corporate partners who are supporting EMU and the Athletic Department attended (30 in total) and had table displays with various giveaways.
The day started with a “Meet the New Athletic Director – Scott Wetherbee”. This portion of the day was exclusive for corporate partners to have the opportunity to meet Scott and learn about his connection to corporate partners and ways that we can all work together to grow the brands and support each other.
The “tabling and mingling” portion of the Partner Summit followed and this was open to all EMU coaches, administrators, faculty and staff.
In total, over 200 people attended and were able to meet representatives from the corporate partners and form new relationships. They also learned about ways to work together while receiving EMU exclusive discounts and pricing to assist with budgets.
The following EMU Athletic Official Partners were in attendance: Ann Arbor Regent Hotel & Suites; Domino’s; and Trinity Transportation.
Attendees received complimentary food and beverage from Aubree’s (Depot Town); Cottage Inn; Domino’s; Jimmy John’s; Little Caesars; Marco’s Pizza; Noodles & Company; and United Dairy Industry of Michigan (Chocolate Milk).
A few partners had “enter to win” contests to win Marco’s Pizza for A Year; $100 Gas Gift Card (courtesy of Cueter Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram); and a $100 VISA Gift Card (courtesy of FGS, Inc.).
All EMU employees are encouraged to attend this fun and unique event next year. The date and time will be shared in the coming months.
