Hello ASUS,

My name is Kareem Issa and I am part of Gator Gaming, the University of Florida's videogames club. We hold a huge LAN, called GatorLAN, twice a semester and was wondering if ASUS would be interested in sponsoring our event on November 19th. GatorLAN is huge LAN tournament event at the University of Florida. We at Gator Gaming are extremely passionate about eSports and host 2 GatorLAN's per semester with a minimum attendance of 700 per LAN. Our LAN in April 2012 had the biggest turnout ever with over 1000 people attending. There will be tournaments in Starcraft 2, League of Legends, Halo 4, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Super Street Fighter 4, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Super Smash Brothers Brawl & Melee, NFL Madden, FIFA, Persona 4 Arena, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, DOTA 2, and Counter Strike:GO. All tournaments are free to enter and top finishers will receive prizes & trophies. The tournaments will follow the most recent competitive rule sets from MLG and EVO tournaments. The event runs from 3PM to 1AM and all tournaments are ran on the day of the event. PC and FPS tournaments are bring your own equipment. We provide the equipment for fighter games.

Our GatorGaming email list serve has over 1100 emails. We do tabling through the year, especially before the events to help promote it. The University of Florida has over 50,000 students and we post flyers throughout the campus classrooms and dorms. We also send out emails through the UF dorm system which has thousands of people on their list serve. We have an extremely passionate eSports community and on average we have 700+ people attending our LANs. Our most recent LAN in April 2012 had over 1000 people in attendance. We even attract members of the Gainesville community that do not attend the University and we also draw players from all over Florida as well. Our GatorGaming email list serve has over 1100 emails.

Sponsorship opportunities include but not limited to: Web banners, advertising on our website, flyers, booth space and banners at event (banners are extremely helpful and effective as we put it at our registration desk so every person entering the LAN will see it), mailing list announcement (over 1100 people on mailing list), posters/signs throughout campus (over 50,000 students at University of Florida), and local newspaper coverage. We can also name our events the "XXXXXXX Starcraft 2 tournament" or "Starcraft 2 by XXXXXXXXX" if XXXXXXXX wishes to sponsor a particular tournament. We will be giving shoutouts to all of our sponsors throughout the LAN via loudspeaker, and during the award ceremonies we will announce prizes donated by sponsors and tell the attendees to check out the sponsors. There will be streaming for many of our tournaments and in the streams, there will be overlays with the sponsors’ logo on a large projector.

Here is our website: www.gatorgaming.com

I sent a PM with this thread to our glorious leader. :) He's not in the US but he might be able to ping the US rep. I haven't seen results for sponsorship requests here since the US marketing team changed but there's always a first time for everything so I wish you luck.

You might also try the ASUS NA facebook page as tackling this from a couple of directions couldn't hurt.

Running a little QuakeCon there? :D Definitely a great idea! Thanks for sharing. Any chance you own ROG hardware?

Well, maybe not official ROG equipment, but for fighters there is usually a demand for Asus brand TVs and I'm personally writing this on an Asus laptop. I think it's safe to say Asus is as legit as it gets when you want a gaming PC.

I'm about to run out the door, but I can actually forward these things along as well. Did it for a few people who contacted Mason before he left. I will just say that the marketing director here has been really busy lately, so it might be a few days to a week, or more, before you get a response.

Maybe you could donate some space?? :D :D

Well, you have room for your desktop, but the 55" display might be too large. We try to get more than one person per table. Especially since we only have the budget for one of the Ballrooms. Check out our Facebook an see. Usually the laptop people don't know what they are getting into. lol The desktop people are usually our winners.
