The North Side can expect to see a lot more of CBRE, especially at the area’s iconic ballpark. The firm announced it has formed a new partnership with the Chicago Cubs that includes CBRE’s logo inside Wrigley Field in addition to a variety of joint events.
This August, CBRE will be moving its 9th annual CBRE Cares Charity Bash to Wrigley. Proceeds from the event will benefit Cubs Charities and its affiliates, which focus on increasing access to sports opportunities and targeting improvements in health, fitness and education for those at risk.
In addition to the business professionals that attend the annual event, Chicago Cubs Anthony Rizzo and Jon Lester, as well as manager Joe Maddon and general manager Theo Epstein will also be in attendance.
“These are exciting times for the Cubs and for CBRE as well,” Chris Connelly, president of CBRE’s Midwest Division, said. “This alliance will enable us to provide some truly unique experiences for our people and our clients and will provide an opportunity to showcase our brand to the more than 3 million fans who’ll be cheering on the Cubs at Wrigley Field this summer and, hopefully, into the fall.”
CBRE will have digital signage throughout the ballpark at all regular season and postseason games during the 2016 Major League Baseball season.
The Cubs will also host a number of additional unique VIP, behind-the-scenes events for CBRE employees, clients and partners.
“We are excited to partner with a world-class, Fortune 500 firm like CBRE and hope to continue this relationship for years to come,” Cubs President of Business Operations, Crane Kenney, said.
