Sports Licensing & entertainment Marketplace
Sports Licensed and Tailgate Industry Green-Light January 2008 Show
Buyers, Sellers & Leagues Confirm Need for Strong Trade Event

Time is money. And when there is money to be made in the licensed sports business, timing is important. These two ideas converged in discussions with licensors, licensed manufacturers and licensed buyers in the days following the Sports Licensing & Entertainment Marketplace and Tailgate • Picnic Show, which debuted in Las Vegas last November.

The result of these talks was a clear, across-the-board consensus: The industry wants and needs a robust annual trade event.

Thus the next Sports Licensing & Entertainment Marketplace and Tailgate • Picnic Show will be held Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, January 16 to 18, 2008 at a new venue, the Sands/Venetian Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Tailgate Picnic Show



Carl Edwards NASCAR Flag

New Hitch for Tailgating Aficianados
Hitch A Flag a Hit with NFL, College & NASCAR Fans
October 23, 2007

Nothing makes a tailgating statement like flying the team colors at a major sports event. Hitch A Flag has turned this tricky process into a real no-brainer. The company makes and markets a hitch-mounted flagpole system that assembles (and breaks down) quickly. NASCAR, NFL and college flags are available.

Chicago Bears Flag

As the company’s TV spot says, “Just clip, hitch and go.” The product allows a 3’ x 5’ flag to move freely and untangled in all directions, and will work at speeds up to 35 mph.

The Hitch A Flag mount is constructed of heavy-duty molded plastic and attaches to a standard two-inch trailer hitch. An optional adapter allows it to work for any size. The pole sections (an extender is available for flying two flags at once) are made of durable powder-coated steel. The unit retails at $34.95.

Hitch A Flag has concentrated its marketing through an 800 number and web site, but is now reaching out toward the retail community. The company will be exhibiting in Las Vegas at the Sports Licensing & Entertainment Marketplace and Tailgate • Picnic Show this January and also expects to be talking to potential distribution partners.
