NBA Energized By Pact With Reliant For All-Star Weekend In Houston

Special to NYSportsJournalism.com

December 10, 2012: The NBA has signed a deal with Reliant, an energy provider based in Houston, to support several events that will take place during NBA All-Star Weekend in the city this February.

Financial terms of the alliance were not disclosed.

All-Star Weekend is scheduled for Feb. 13-15, 2013, with the game itself to be played in Toyota Center, home of the Houston Rockets.

The company has a significant presence in the city, with naming rights to Reliant Stadium (pictured below), home of the NFL's Houston Texans.

Among its activations, Reliant will have a presence at NBA All-Star Jam Session in the George R. Brown Convention Center, the NBA Cares All-Star Day of Service  and the NBA All-Star 5K Race, where Reliant will be an associate partner.

“Reliant is a long-standing fixture in the Houston community,” Mark Tatum, NBA evp-global marketing partnerships, said in a statement.  “We’re thrilled to be working with them to provide a world class basketball experience for Houston, while leaving a lasting impact on the city.”
