Heineken USA on April 20 announced the signing of a marketing alliance with Live Nation giving their key Mexican import Dos Equis exclusive naming rights to the Starplex Pavilion, a 20,000- seat venue located in Fair Park in Dallas. The largest amphitheater in the Dallas-Fort Worth area will be renamed Dos Equis Pavilion in this multi-year agreement.
Under the terms of the deal Dos Equis will be the exclusive naming rights partner of the facility and be integrated into the official logo of the Pavilion. Prominent signage throughout the venue, including façade, box office and LED displays will drive brand awareness among the hundreds of thousands of legal drinking age concertgoers and enhance the music experience.
Dos Equis Pavilion will play host to top music talent throughout 2018, keeping the popular Mexican imported beer top of mind among music lovers and beer drinkers in the beer brand’s top market.
“We are honored to be aligning with such a respected partner as Live Nation. And the fact that the newly named Dos Equis Pavilion is located in the heart of a key Dos Equis market makes this partnership uniquely relevant to our core consumers,” said Elizabeth Cannon, regional marketing manager at Heineken USA.
The Pavilion underwent over $8 million in upgrades in 2017.
