Partners Will Work Together on A Series of Cross-Promotional Initiatives with University’s Athletic Teams
Power Plate, the global leader in vibrating platforms to help you prepare faster, perform better and recover quicker, today announced a three-year strategic partnership to become the official Fitness Technology Partner of the Northwestern Wildcats. As a result of the partnership, Power Plate and Northwestern will work together on a variety of promotional initiatives surrounding the school’s athletic events.
Beginning with the 2017 football season, Power Plate will have promotions at select Northwestern home sporting events. Among these promotions are videoboard features, signage in the stadium and on-site activations to educate Northwestern fans about Power Plate and the benefits it offers. These various on-site activations will also continue beyond the football season, with events during home basketball games and track and field events. Power Plate will also sponsor social media campaigns leading up to, and during the 2017-18, 2018-2019, and 2019-20 men’s basketball seasons, as well as the 2018 and 2019 football seasons.
