Tahoe Blue Vodka, owned by Tahoe Spirits, Inc., is now the exclusive multi-year naming rights sponsor for the newly named Tahoe Blue Center located on the south shore of Lake Tahoe in Stateline, Nevada. The highly anticipated live entertainment, sports, concert and conference center is currently under construction and projected to open in July 2023.
Award-winning Tahoe Blue Vodka is crafted from pristine Tahoe water and has a unique 3-vodka blend of grapes, corn and sugarcane to create a smooth and clean finish. The vodka is 100% gluten free.
In addition to securing naming rights to the center, Tahoe Blue Vodka’s agreement includes prominent exterior and interior signage and a commitment to sustainable efforts inside the Tahoe Blue Center. The venue will host 130 events annually. This is the first naming rights sponsorship for Tahoe Blue Vodka.
Once completed, the arena and conference center will serve as a key anchor to Lake Tahoe’s south shore and help drive visitors during the shoulder seasons, while creating jobs for residents.
“As the naming rights partner for the new Tahoe Blue Center, we are proud to support this spectacular, innovative and unparalleled venue that reflects our long-standing commitment to invest in the region, celebrate the unique Lake Tahoe lifestyle, and be a driving force as an ecological leader and innovator,” said Matt Levitt, founder and CEO of Tahoe Blue Vodka.
The partnership was developed by OVG Global Partnerships, the sponsorship and naming rights division of Oak View Group that connects world-class brands with world-class live entertainment properties. The Tahoe Douglas Visitors Authority (TDVA) and Oak View Group (OVG), the global venue development, advisory, and investment company for both the sports and live entertainment industries, unveiled the exclusive multi-year naming rights agreement with Tahoe Blue Vodka and renderings of the venue.
“The center is a significant investment in the destination’s sustainable future and year-round economic health, and we’re pleased to announce this wonderful representation of local partnership,” said Carol Chaplin, president and CEO, Tahoe Douglas Visitors Authority. “Tahoe Blue Vodka is a company that was born right here in Lake Tahoe and their substantial investment will offer multiple levels of sponsorship.”
