Trail Drive Management Corp. (TDMC), the not-for-profit operating entity of Dickies Arena, announced Reliant will become the official energy provider of Dickies Arena and a founding sponsor. The agreement also makes Reliant a major sponsor of the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo.
“We share in the excitement as Dickies Arena opens this year,” said Elizabeth Killinger, president of Reliant. “Reliant is proud to team up with TDMC to help bring new experiences and outstanding amenities to the Fort Worth community. We continually look for ways to give back to our communities and seek out organizations that showcase the best Texas has to offer.
“As the official energy provider at Dickies Arena, Reliant is showing its support and commitment within the community,” said Matt Homan, president and general manager of TDMC. “We are excited to have Reliant on board.”
Reliant will also be adding its Go Charing Stations as part of the agreement with the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo.
These portable power solutions let visitors rent a power pack from a self-service station, charge their device and return the palm-sized unit at any station. For Reliant residential and small business electricity customers, rentals at any Reliant Go Station are always free.
“Reliant’s expanded commitment to the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo will enhance awareness of the company’s many wonderful contributions to the Fort Worth community,” said Stock Show President and General Manager Brad Barnes. “The Reliant Go Charging Stations will provide an awesome service to Stock Show guests, both local and out of towners, who may be needing a quick charge on their cell phones.”
Dickies Arena will bring a wide variety of programming to Fort Worth, including major concerts, family shows, sporting events and community events. Beginning in 2020, Dickies Arena will be the home to the Fort Worth Stock Show rodeo performances. The $540 million project will complement the current Will Rogers Memorial Complex, which will continue to host major equestrian shows, trade shows, competitions and more.
