A happy homecoming with the University of South Alabama
For the love of fall & football.
Alumni associations offer former students the chance to stay connected with their college or university. They update graduates with news, offer benefits, and host events. The peak time of year to hold alumni-centric events is usually around homecoming in autumn, celebrating sports and students past and present.
The University of South Alabama Alumni Association keeps busy during this season and runs many events. One in particular is the Jaguar Junction, a hospitality event free to association members, that's held before every home football game at the university. The Alumni Association was looking to add more flair to this event to make it feel like an experience for returning alumni, and to showcase event sponsors.
The pride is in the print.
The University decided they needed to brand two main areas of the Jaguar Junction party tent: the entrance, and the barrier rails enclosing the tent. To make a big, bold impression on the entryway, they chose a custom inflatable arch decked out in the school colors and the Alumni Association's logo emblazoned across the top. In choosing this specific design, they'd be able to maximize their investment and use the arch at other sponsored events throughout the year - not just football games.
The University of South Alabama chose custom vinyl barrier covers that would be printed on both sides for the rails around the perimeter of the tent. These would allow for extra event branding space to complement the arch and display the sponsors.
Ultimately, they chose our 20ft "Colorscape" inflatable arch, made from a high quality 600 denier polyester-nylon blend, and 9 double-sided barrier covers. Both items were optimized for outdoor use, ready for whatever weather came their way on game day.
A total touchdown.
And ready they were. In the midst of a rainy forecast for opening day, the brightly colored arch and barrier covers brought new life to the Jaguar Junction space.
When our service team checked in after their items arrived, there was nothing but positive feedback. "Very fast turnaround with excellent quality, thank you!" said Julie Jackson, Director of Communications for Development & Alumni Relations.
The addition of these branded displays totally pumped up the look and feel of the event. After a great first season in use, the University of South Alabama went on to use the arch at other alumni events, and returned to us the following year to order even more items!
