CEO Jon Stromberg: MLB All-Star Hospitality Proves a Winner for Clients


With a first pitch thrown by President Barack Obama and a homerun-robbing catch in the seventh inning, the 2009 All Star Game was a thriller for THG clients who took part in the company’s top-tier hospitality offerings during this year’s midsummer classic in St. Louis, says THG CEO Jon Stromberg.

“The game was a winner on all fronts—exciting play, excellent networking opportunities and a showcase of baseball at its finest.”

THG clients took part in a pre-game, interactive appearance with three-time All Star and former Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinal standout Andy Van Slyke. He quizzed THG attendees on All Star game trivia, offering autographed baseballs for correct answers, and gave an insider’s perspective on what it’s like to play in the All Star Game.

“Andy’s appearance was a perfect precursor for a great night of baseball,” Stromberg says. The American League team beat its National League opponents, 4-3.

THG hospitality offerings—including Van Slyke’s appearance and pre- and post-game networking opportunities—took place at the new Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark (see image), which is adjacent to Busch Stadium in the city’s historic downtown district.

THG has organized hospitality during the All Star Game for the past 17 years, with a majority of their top Fortune 1000 accounts already secured for next years 2010 All Star Game scheduled for July 13 at AT&T Park in Anaheim, Calif. For more information, click here.
