The Dragonfli Roundup

Summer is off and running and we are excited to have a jam-packed schedule. 

A team of 40+ full-time and contract staff is boots on the ground in Brooklyn, NY for Formula E’s lone stateside stop. With a host of capabilities on our plate including site build, branding, permitting processes and vendor management, we can’t wait to see who takes the checkered flag July 10-11.

Formula E

We’re back to live, in-person sporting events and in a big way. The Formula E World Championship is set for the streets of Brooklyn, NY July 10-11 and we are right in the thick of it as their local operating partner.

Our fearless project manager leaders Ben Nelson, Barb Hamblett and Seth Delorey are overseeing a team of 45 as we manage a number of large-scale logistics including the site build, branding, permitting processes and vendor management. 

The permitting process cannot be understated as we are working hand-in-hand with the NYPD, NYFD, Homeland Security, Secret Service, Coast Guard and Port Authority. 

Additionally, our team is managing a COVID-safe bubble for thousands of international drivers, teams and staff members to ensure all COVID-19 protocols are met. This includes working closely with Bio-Reference Laboratories who has also been contracted by the NFL, NBA and NHL throughout the pandemic.

As a limited number of fans are welcomed back to take in the action, we were also tasked with managing the sponsor village and build of spectator grandstands. 

Our crew is calling New York home for nearly a month as they ready to welcome elite drivers from around the world on the quest for the checkered flag.

As we continue to welcome over 100 cars each night, be on the lookout for more movies and showtimes throughout the summer.

USA Cycling and Skate

With the Tokyo Summer Games (finally) here, we can’t wait to cheer on Team USA — especially the cycling and first-ever skateboarding athletes. 

Michael Jaquet has been hard at work securing sponsorships for the two teams including recently-announced partnerships for USA Cycling with Intermountain Health and Tissot.
