"This opportunity came to us from our sponsorship with Olympic gold medalist Ashleigh McIvor and the announcement of her induction into the BC Sports Hall of Fame," said Alex Romanov, iSIGN's Chief Executive Officer. "We will commence broadcasting at the 2012 BC Sports Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on September 20, 2012, where Ashleigh, will be one of a select group of inductees, and is the youngest athlete to be inducted, into the BC Sports Hall of Fame. iSIGN is very honoured to be included in this event and to be given the opportunity to introduce Ashleigh and present her with her BC Sports Hall of Fame Induction Certificate. "We are very excited to continue our support of Ashleigh."
"Our partnership with iSIGN provides the BC Sports Hall of Fame with a tremendous opportunity to broadcast live to the community with key messages in real time," stated BC Sports Hall of Fame CEO Sue Griffin. "Whether it is "2 for 1 admission," "team merchandise on sale today," or "book your child's birthday party at the Hall," through iSIGN's innovative technology we will be able to reach new customers."
"This installation is a very good opportunity for us, in that our broadcasting will commence on the day of the Banquet of Champions, Western Canada's largest and most high-profile event that attracts over 1,000 guests, including many of British Columbia's senior corporate and sports executives," added Mr. Romanov. "This is an excellent opportunity for us to introduce our award winning Smart Antenna to a large corporate audience and to enable the BC Sports Hall of Fame to interact with the public about sports and athletes on a new level through proximity messaging."
