Dana White and Kelly Perdew Talk Grapplers Quest

Now, I know you're probably thinking..."Why should I spend my time, energy and money as a vendor or sponsor at Grapplers Quest tournaments?" Here are five HUGE reasons to keep reading…

BIG Reason #1 – Your BRAND becomes part of the Show: It's a fact that tournament vendors get MUCH better results if there booths are in the same area as the tournament, rather than being isolated in a completely separate area or location. Your products and services will be featured in a high traffic area for all attendees to see. The layout of the tournament and venue offers maximum exposure and allows us to directly drive traffic to your booth! You'll be placed in the main area where ALL the competitors and spectators will passing by between matches, and during the entire 8-10 hour day at the tournament. The World’s Largest Grappling Tournament guarantees thousands of potential customers every show nationwide!

BIG Reason #2 – One-On-One Relationship Marketing with Competitors, School Owners & Spectators!
The supreme way to create new customers and build stronger relationships is to meet them in person and spend quality one-on-one time with them. At GRAPPLERS QUEST tournaments, we provide you the opportunity to spend time with our attendees. Not only will you have each and every person passing by your vendor space several times per day, you'll also benefit from the one-on-one time you'll get to develop with everyone in attendance.

BIG Reason #3 – Target the HOTTEST and MOST PROFITABLE Demographic in the World: The Grappling, Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts industry has grown in leaps and bounds over the past 10 years. MMA is the fastest growing new sport in the U.S. Athletes, School owners and their families that are actively competing and traveling to tournaments understand what it takes to be successful in the sport and are already educated about what they want and need. Sportsmanship at Grapplers Quest events is unparalleled in the Sport. We cater to those focused and world class amateur and professional athletes who want to grow the sport they love.

Exposing your products and services to our qualified, focused and success-minded competitors will help EXPLODE YOUR BUSINESS!

BIG Reason #4 - Expanded, "Personalized" Marketing Opportunities!
Of course you'll have the "typical" opportunities to get your message to your potential customers that will include your booth space and a vendor badge. But, at GRAPPLERS QUEST tournaments you will also receive additional opportunities for you to impact our attendees
