Mark kicked the recession into touch and decided to build his client base while helping other local businesses at the same time.
He agreed to sponsor the £15 million sports and leisure complex in Middlebrook Leisure and Retail Park by producing its signage for the next year. In return, FASTSIGNS becomes the arena’s official sign provider and will put some of its own posters and banners on show.
The Bolton Arena is one of the leading academies in the country and provides training facilities for talented athletes, sports clubs and the local community. It also hosts exhibitions, as well as football, boxing, and badminton tournaments, and needs signs to promote events.
Said Mark: “The recession is a pain in the neck. But if we sit around and expect business to happen, we’ll wait forever. Sponsorship deals like this one supports the community, and gets our name out there – especially as the arena has a 9,000 capacity. It’s a win-win.”
Commercial Manager at Bolton Arena Gwyn Hughes said: “Support from companies like FASTSIGNS helps to raise our profile and support our charitable objectives. We’ve been delighted with the quality of work they’ve done for us.”
FASTSIGNS offers a full range of custom signs and graphic products, including banners, window and vehicle graphics, floor graphics, safety and identification signage, exhibition graphics and exterior signage for interior and exterior use.
