SOMERSET, NJ – The Northeast Conference (NEC) and Nevco, Inc., today announced a multi-year sponsorship agreement. Nevco, the largest private manufacturer and provider of video display and scoreboard products, now becomes the official scoreboard and video display provider for the NEC.
The NEC selected Nevco as a corporate partner in part due to Nevco’s reputation for delivering quality and capability-rich products. For more than 75 years, Nevco has provided integrated scoring and video display solutions for colleges, universities and other organizations. Nevco will be offering LED signage, such as marquee signs and message centers, to help NEC membership communicate with their students and local community. All products will be covered by Nevco’s industry-leading guarantee.
As part of this partnership, Nevco will receive a number of advertising and promotional benefits. Nevco will retain naming rights to the NEC scoreboard feature during all league basketball telecasts, which will highlight out-of-town scores from around the Conference. In addition, Nevco will receive web and print advertising considerations through this new partnership and will serve as the presenting sponsor of a VIP luncheon at the NEC’s annual Spring Meetings.
“The NEC is very excited to add Nevco to its valued group of corporate partners,” said NEC Commissioner Noreen Morris. “Nevco is an industry leader in the display and scoreboard category and we look forward to helping promote their products and services to our membership and fans.”
“We’re honored to work with the NEC membership to help provide an even better game day experience for their students, athletes, coaches, fans and supporters,” said Eric Light, Director of Sales for Nevco, Inc. “Our scoreboards and integrated video display solutions will help the NEC member schools enhance their athletic facilities, improve game-day operations, generate additional sponsorship revenue and make their athletic events even more fun and exciting.”
