You can have your own Corporate Hospitality event prior to Cougar football games. This is the perfect way to entertain your clients,
employees, family and friends.
As you know, our event marketing consisted of a tent/inflatable and agents to work the booth to garner leads. We measure results from the leads we garner. For each of the U of H games that we did this at, we garnered 300+ leads at each one. On average with all of our Universities (TCU, SMU, UNT, TT, Baylor, SFA, Texas State, WTAMU, UT, UTEP, and yet to be done TAMU) we are garnering 200 leads per event.
What made the event at U of H so successful was the family atmosphere, tailgating area that makes it conducive for people to come and relax prior to the game and the diversity of the students/fans that make pre-game events lively.
We appreciate all that you have done and continue to do for State Farm with the little extras that make this partnership premier."- Angela Ward, State Farm-Texas Marketing

What our clients are saying about us
"The support, suggestions and follow up provided by ISP Sports for the events we have sponsored at their campuses has truly helped make our events successful. ISP Sports is willing to work closely with New York Life to make our events are as successful as possible. ISP listens to our ideas and is willing to adapt the services being offered to meet our goals and objectives. ISP Sports understands our goals and objectives and the results we seek from the different advertising and sponsorships we do through them. Knowing that they understand and "get" what we are trying to accomplish creates an environment of collaboration, support, enthusiasm and trust that makes the relationship successful. This is incredibly important to New York Life in their on-campus recruiting and branding efforts."
"Administaff has been involved with ISP Sports at the University of Houston for several years. Our involvement has ranged from title sponsoring the Bayou Bucket, an annual football game between the University of Houston and Rice University, to sponsorship and tickets to all major sports at the University. My experience with ISP Sports has been extremely positive. The value we receive from our relationship with ISP and the University is outstanding. Their willingness to develop program that meet the needs at Administaff has made the decision to continue our involvement with them an easy one. In fact, we intend to increase our financial commitment to the University in 2008."
"We have enjoyed being the pre-game show sponsor for Cougar radio this season and hope to continue that role in the future. I thought you would like to hear a good piece of information. Our firm received a request for proposal from a large
local government agency to bid on audit services for 2009. When I delivered the proposals to the agency, the executive director made a special point to tell me how our firm made it on the bid list. He was listening to the radio pregame show for Cougar football and heard our ad, which ISP produced, and added us to the list. I don't believe that we would have made that list without you. I would like to thank you and all of your team and all of UH athletics for that."
