HOUSTON, TX, February 18, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Emperial Americas, Inc. announced today that it has renewed its sponsorship with the Birds of Prey Downhill Skiing Championship at Beaver Creek, Colorado through 2013. On the heels of the brand's successful 2011 inaugural year with Birds of Prey, Emperial Americas' brand Tequila Distinguido is destined to make a huge splash during this multi-year agreement.
"The upcoming 2012 season will be the second year that Tequila Distinguido has sponsored Birds of Prey, which is a spectacular event," said Alonzo Pierce, CEO, Emperial Americas. "Not only does Birds of Prey garner our brand worldwide exposure on networks such as Versus and NBC, the opportunity drives positive momentum and gives us tremendous on-site exposure."
With Jumbotron and strategic banner placement on the slopes and in spectator areas, the 2011 race that recently concluded turned out viewers in record numbers, according to race officials. This has caused many to surmise that Downhill Day was perhaps the largest crowd since the 1999 World Championships.
Beaver Creek's Birds of Prey racecourse was built during the summer of 1997 in preparation for the 1999 World Alpine Ski Championships. Designed by Olympic Downhill gold medalist Bernhard Russi of Switzerland, the first competition on Birds of Prey took place December 2-6, 1997, with a pair of men's World Cup Downhill races and a men's World Cup Super-G.
