SPOKANE – Riverfront Park is seeking an exclusive naming rights partner for the iconic Expo '74 U.S. Pavilion. Parks & Recreation issued a request for proposals on September 7, with submissions due by October 10.
Note: The submission deadline has been extended to October 31, 2022.
This latest request for proposals is a continuation of Riverfront's initiative to partner with community organizations to provide programming and leverage park funds for further sustainability of the community's redevelopment investment.
“Partnerships like these help us provide free and low-cost programs to the community year-round, and support the vitality of our downtown crown jewel,” said Garrett Jones, director of Parks & Recreation for the City of Spokane.
The Numerica Skate Ribbon and SkyRide is an example of the community benefits of a naming rights partner, as funds have helped the park provide free activities throughout the year in health, entertainment, family, and signature events.
A contract for exclusive naming rights for the Pavilion will last no more than ten years and would include marketing and advertising benefits including signage, events, hospitality and other promotional benefits.
Parks & Recreation is holding a question-and-answer period for prospective partners from September 12 through October 3, with an evaluation, negotiation, and contract award period between October 10 and December 31. To view the official request for proposal and associated documents, visit the City of Spokane’s dedicated procurement portal here.
