Naming Rights – Building a True Partnership

Sponsorship Naming Rights

Securing a naming rights partner can be the most lucrative and long-term of all sponsorship deals. With millions of dollars at stake, no one can afford to make a wrong decision. Let IEG help guide you through this process.

When it comes to naming rights partnerships, there is a lot on the line for both parties. Naming rights deals are some of the most complex, expensive and lengthy partnership relationships undertaken by properties and sponsors.
