Make Some Noise Event A Roaring Success

Thursday 9th February saw the Arena host our Make Some Noise business event. The event was put on to showcase how working with the Arena could benefit local businesses. USN Bolton Arena chairman Richard Hurst hosted the event.

Sponsors Stateside Foods, Emerson, Craftprint and Lostock Motor Works all gave fantastic speeches to over 60 businesses, talking of the positive impact that working with the Arena has had on their business. After the speeches guests were able to network at their own leisure.

Events and B2B Manager, Hannah Mooney said “The event was a huge success. It allowed local businesses the chance to find out more about the Arena and what goes on here.

“Not many people realise that we are in fact a charity with all our profits going back into the facility and the programmes which we run. So to be able to support the community whilst advertising to our many visitors is a win win for our sponsors.”

Thank you to all that attended. Our next networking event will take place on Thursday 11th May, 3-5pm. You can find out more information here.

Sponsors Re-Sign With Arena

We are pleased to announce that two of the USN Bolton Arena’s long-standing sponsors have recently extended their sponsorship.

Bolton School – one of the oldest in Lancashire dating back to at least 1516 – are extending their sponsorship into a fourth year.

The prestigious independent school has 2,500 pupils, ranging from its nursery to a sixth form college, and with a reputation that extends nationally.

Marketing Manager John Newbould explained that the Arena’s ability to reach the school’s target audience was behind their decision to sponsor the Arena: “When we monitored parents, a lot of them said they went to the gym or sports centre so we decided to sponsor the Arena.”

Another organisation extending its sponsorship is Fastsigns.

Based on Bury New Road, Bolton, the well-known local franchise is now owned by David Hiney, who has recently had a career change after more than 20 years in IT.

As well as offering traditional signage, Fastsigns also specialises in digital signage and other services such as vehicle wrapping. Its clients range from large companies to local schools and small businesses.

Fastsigns has been a sponsor and preferred signage supplier of the USN Bolton Arena since 2010 and Mr Hiney was particularly keen to retain the sponsorship.

“It has certainly been successful for Fastsigns because of our visibility there,” he stated, “and I particularly like being a part of the local community which I think is really important.

“I want Fastsigns to be seen as a business service for local businesses as well as our clients in a wider area and feel this sponsorship works for us.”
