Sports Licensing and Tailgate Show floorAs a friendly reminder to those of you who regularly visit this tailgating blog, for the next few days the updates on here may be a bit lacking. The reason being is that Dave will be out in Las Vegas attending the Sports Licensing and Tailgate Show.

Both Wednesday and Thursday, Dave has been asked to be a guest speaker on panels that discuss social media and how tailgating retailers can effectively use it. That panel will be held on Wednesday. Thursday’s panel will focus on “How to use Tailgating as a marketing vehicle to bring traffic to retail stores”. Not only will we be appearing on those speakers panels but we will also use the time on the show floor to discover new tailgating gear, gadgets and hardware that will be the next big thing in tailgating.

As for finding the time to update this blog while we are in Vegas is still up in the air. Rest assured we will take plenty of photos and videos of products out on the show floor along with other things that would be of interest to tailgating nation. To make sure you are up to date on all the goings on out in Vegas, make sure to follow us on Twitter, @TailgatingIdeas. We will be live tweeting from the show floor, sharing photos and everything else as it happens. We will offer a full recap complete with videos and photos from Las Vegas after the show is over but if you can’t wait, Twitter is the best way to stay current.

Stay tuned.

After spending some time out in Las Vegas for the Sports Licensing and Tailgate Show in January we learned of the Freedom Tray which is a unique food and beverage tray that is ideal for tailgating. At that time they were seeking licensing partners and it looks as though they were successful.

Sports Licensing & Tailgate Show Offering Buyer Guarantee

Posted by Dave On September - 6 - 2010

Sports Licensing and Tailgate Show floorLast year we attended the Sports Licensing & Tailgate Show out in Las Vegas in January. We met numerous vendors and exhibitors that had some fantastic tailgating ideas. Not only is this show a great way for people to see brand new tailgating gear and inventions, but it is also a great way for commercial buyers to see new products as well. Back again this year is the Sports Licensing & Tailgate Show buyer guarantee.

What that means is that if a buyer attends the Sports Licensing & Tailgate Show and they believe it was not a productive use of their time or fell short of expectations, the show organizers will reimburse the buyer for their hotel stay up to two nights (includes room and tax). The organizers of the expo have been offering this guarantee for years and they are continuing it again in 2011.  To learn more about the Buyer Satisfaction Guarantee, visit the show’s official website HERE.

If you are an inventor or would like to showcase your product as a booth exhibitor, please email Steve at: tailgatinglegend [at] gmail dot com.

Posted by Dave On March - 25 - 2010

In February 2009 we discovered the Clink-N-Drink, a magnetic bottle opener that mounts on metal surfaces and grabs the opened cap. Not only has time passed since we first saw the prototypes of this great tailgating product but a lot of improvements have been made to it. We had a chance to check out the new and improved Clink-N-Drink out at the Sports Licencing & Tailgate Show in Las Vegas and spoke with Doug Haynes, the creator and owner of Clink-N-Drink.
