Recap of InterCall at the 2013 Big Ten Tounrament

Last year the tournament was held at the United Center in Chicago. It was the first year of InterCall's relationship with the Big Ten Conference - and it was a slam dunk from the opening tip.

Last year's Big Ten Tournament set a tournament attendance record with a total attendance of 124,543 across the four-day event. That mark shattered the old record also set at the United Center of 109,769. All six sessions of the 2013 tournament were officially sold out. An average of almost 21,000 Big Ten fans packed the stadium for each session.

 

InterCall and the Big Ten draw huge crowds to the tournament.

We wouldn't even hint at the idea that InterCall helped set the attendance record. But, it's a pretty interesting coincidence, don't you think?

We were very excited at InterCall to hear about the unbelievable attendance of the tournament. The Sunday final game was the highest viewed of any conference final.  In fact the Saturday semi-finals were equal in ratings to the final game from the next closest conference – so fans were watching.

And if that many people saw the games, then they also saw InterCall.

InterCall hosted a VIP event at the 2013 Tournament

At last year's Big Ten Tournament, we played host to selected VIP guests. We were pleased with the positive feedback we got from the event and the relationships we were able to foster.

InterCall and our VIPs began the formation of strategic and mutually beneficial relationships that live on today.

Here are some pictures form the 2013 event

We are looking forward to another great Big Ten Tournament in 2014 and building our relationship with the Big Ten going forward.
