I was at the Kravis Center in Palm Beach today giving a talk to 100 or so business leaders as part of Smart Business Magazine’s Luncheon Series, and received some interesting feedback in regards to our marketing and public relations outreach in Palm Beach County.
They pretty much said we have none.
Personally I believe that now is the time for us to make a bigger impact in the Palm Beach market, but I also thought this would be a good opportunity to let the loyal readers of my blog weigh in on the same subject.
I’d like to know what you, our fans, think about our efforts in the Palm Beach County market? Are they above average? Below par? Non-existent? E-mail me at and please be honest.
As we are now just 23 days from Opening night 2009, our public relations and marketing departments are brainstorming on a daily basis on how to grow the Panthers fanbase and make the BankAtlantic Center the toughest place to play in the National Hockey League, and your feedback always helps.
That said, it’s hard not to be excited after your Cats have started 3-0 (including the rookie game) in the preseason, and gotten standout performances across the board form the likes of rookie Dmitry Kulikov, defenseman Jordan Leopold, star David Booth, and all of our goaltenders.
Hopefully you are all looking forward to our preseason home game next week and, as always, I appreciate your honest and candid feedback. Thanks for reading and go Panthers.
