AN IN-DEPTH LOOK AT THE SPORTS

SPONSORSHIP PORTFOLIO

WITH:

Billion dollar company Levi Strauss & Company was founded in 1853 when German immigrant Levi Strauss opened a dry goods store in San Francisco. In 1873, Levi’s® created the first blue jean by adding copper rivets to denim pants for workers in the American West.  

On September 12, please join NSMN for a 90 minute live interview with James Curleigh, President, Levi’s® Brand, Levi Strauss & Co., who will share insight into how the brand utilizes sports partnerships to connect to consumers and continue the company’s long history of commitment to community, philanthropy and quality that Levi Strauss himself strived to achieve so many years ago. Despite its long and successful history,  Bay Area-based Levi Strauss & Company is a relative newcomer to the world of sports sponsorships.  We will discuss Levi’s®'s sports sponsorships with the San Francisco Giants and the San Francisco 49ers, as well as the company’s  $220 million, 20-year naming rights deal for the recently opened Levi’s® Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.

Don’t miss this industry event as we gather at the new stadium to hear more about how the company is utilizing sports and entertainment to build its brand; how they measure sponsorship success; and what’s next for this iconic brand as they continue to spend in sports!
