HotelPlanner.com, the leading online provider of group travel worldwide, recently debuted as the Title Sponsor of the 34th Annual Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix Festival in Sarasota, Florida. Each year, the high-octane event is produced by and benefits the Suncoast Charities for Children.
Following the race weekend, Powerboat P1, who are the sanctioning body for the racing portion of this iconic festival, caught up with title sponsor HotelPlanner.com. Speaking to the company’s Co-Founder and CEO, Tim Hentschel, first explained their association with the recent festival:
“Powerboat P1's event in Sarasota seemed like a natural fit for us. Based in West Palm Beach, we do a lot of work with hotels in Florida and know the area well, which is an advantage for those traveling to the event.
“We believe that everything is better together, so it is our mission to help people connect both easily and economically to the people and places that matter. We were honored to help fans connect with Powerboat P1 as it accelerates the sport of powerboating around the world.”
Powerboat P1 may be the latest sporting company that HotelPlanner.com has partnered with, but it’s certainly not the first.
Since their establishment in 2002, HotelPlanner.com has aligned itself with many other high-profile sports, clubs and teams on an international level including: Millwall F.C., QPR, and Swansea City; a wide range of US sports teams such as New York Yankees, New York Jets, Los Angeles Rams, and the Brooklyn Nets; as well as a number of college football teams.
Sport partnerships, such as their recent one with Powerboat P1, are clearly a stand-out focus for HotelPlanner.com, as Hentschel explained: “As a travel technology company always striving to set industry firsts, we respect the extreme endurance, confidence, and fearlessness exhibited by the players. We're also of the mindset that sport and business go hand in hand in terms of the values and attributes required to succeed in both.”
“While sponsorship is of course about a business gaining brand exposure and advertising, we don't just engage with teams for those reasons. We pride ourselves on giving back to the teams we partner with by bringing them together with their fans in the most seamless way possible,” said Hentschel.
