For big companies,touring the country and even the world with clients is limited only by the size of their expense accounts,but for smaller businesses also looking to persuade prospective investors,Tuchman Sports Enterprises can help you keep within your budget and still ride in style.
Simply put,TSE handles big companies on a daily basis,providing deluxe accommodations,tickets to sporting events,and backstage access for Fortune 500 corporations,who use the Super Bowl or the Olympics to persuade clients to give them their business. But what about smaller corporations on smaller budgets?
Well,the Super Bowl is out of the question,as you're looking at spending upwards of $5,000 per person ($4,990 for single occupancy and $4,190 for double occupancy,to be exact). And that doesn't even include add-ons,such as the NFL Commissioner's Ball or the Playboy.com VIP celebrity party.
But what client would be able to resist four days,three nights of deluxe hotel accommodations in Honolulu,Hawaii? For roughly half the price of the Super Bowl ($2,185 per person for single occupancy and $1,690 per person for double occupancy),one can entertain potential investors at the NFL's Pro Bowl,with an official tailgate party before the game.
“In terms of Hawaii itself,it is a popular destination,” says Robert Tuchman,president of TSE,“[but] it's a great bargain.”
While you're enjoying Hawaii's natural beauty,there's very little else you'll have to pay for since TSE's sporting events packages include full daily breakfast (none of that “continental” stuff for your clients; remember,this is five-star all the way) and all taxes and gratuities. And that's just the beginning.
“Daytona 500,[the Major League] Baseball All-Star Game,[and] NASCAR's becoming very big. Our NASCAR sales have grown twofold in the past two years.”
“[We] have used their services before,” said Basil Murrain,assistant vice president of marketing for American Urban Radio Network.
According to Murrain,his office used TSE last year to put together entertainment packages as part of a national promotion for AC-Delco,an auto parts supplier. They gave away tickets to various events,including football games across the country and the U.S. Open.
In fact,the U.S. Open is one of the more reasonably-priced events,although it is more expensive than the Pro Bowl at $2,283 per person for four nights,three days in double occupancy rooms,and $2,830 for single occupancy rooms.
“We sent people to Detroit,New York,Chicago,San Francisco…They delivered everything on time,and [provided] high-quality services.” Though he wouldn't release exact numbers,Murrain remarked that the packages put together by TSE were “very affordable.”
“There are a lot of options in terms of less expensive events,” adds Tuchman. “You don't have to be an IBM to entertain your clients.”
