Top 5 Sporting Events to Treat Your Employees to in 2016

It’s that time of year when employers start thinking about what gifts and rewards they are going to give their employees this year. While many go for the typical gift card, we encourage you to think outside of the box. Instead of giving them a material object, how about giving them an experience of a lifetime? After all, studies have shown that people remember and value experiences more than they do material items.

Think about it. What do you remember most? That pair of shoes you bought ten years ago or the trip you took with your friends to Italy? Experiences are the perfect motivational reward this holiday season and ones your employees will remember forever.

Sporting events are great for several situations: sales incentive trips, client/employee appreciation, corporate team building, corporate retreats and more. With that being said, here are the top five sporting events to treat your employees to in 2016.

Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is one of the most talked about events every year, but we know this year will be bigger than ever as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary. If there’s one Super Bowl to attend, it’s this one. The hype around it continues to grow every day…and for good reason.

Regardless of who is playing, it’s going to be one heck of night. AND what better venue than Levi’s Stadium? At Super Bowl 50, you can sit on the 50 yard line, enjoy premium hospitality before, during and after the game, and easily arrange hotel accommodations for your employees. We make it easy for you.

NBA All-Star

Hello, Toronto! NBA All-Star is headed to Canada in 2016 for an action-packed weekend. Your employees can be treated to Upper Level Corner Seats at the State Farm All-Star Saturday Night and the 65th NBA All-Star Game. Saturday night will be a fun-filled night with the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest and the Verizon Slam Dunk. They’ll also have tickets to the NBA Party either Friday, Saturday or Sunday. If you know your employees love to kick back and have a fun time, this is the event for you.

Don’t forget you can also add on a few parties for your employees to attend – the Fillies and Lilies Party is always a big hit!

College Football Playoff National Championship

Last, but certainly not least, you can kick off the start of the new year with tickets to the College Football Playoff National Championship at the University of Phoenix Stadium. You can choose to sit on the sidelines, in the corners or in the end zones…it’s up to you! You can also get Stadium VIP Suites, which are ideal for a corporate group. Each group will get a food and beverage package to enjoy before and during the game.

If you REALLY want to treat your employees, opt for the Red Level A or C package – they will have the opportunity to take photos on the field after the game. Talk about a memory that will last a lifetime.
