Bartering With The Greensboro Coliseum Part #4 Our State Magazine

Our State Mag Barter Agreement With Greensboro Coliseum

The Greensboro Coliseum has barter agreements with some local companies and with the last Greensboro City Council meeting on 7-20-2010 they were funding a new facility called the VIP Room. It was pointed out on another post at TRIADWATCH CLICKHERE about questions for Coliseum Director Matt Brown in regards to bartering services and construction jobs at the coliseum . This post and other post in the coming days will show you what we received in a open records request under North Carolina state law inquiry into the barter agreements at the Greensboro Coliseum.

Part #4 Our State Magazine

Our State/ North Carolina Magazine in this barter agreement with the Greensboro Coliseum agrees to trade $5,000 worth of print advertising in their publication to be utilized from January 8, 2010 to January 7, 2011 in exchange for two (2) Carlyle Club seats in Section 210, Row A, Seats 15 & 16.

Our State Magazine is a great publication and highly recommend a subscription to this magazine here is a link to their web site CLICKHERE . This looks like a simple barter agreement and if you are a local publication or a state and regional magazine publication maybe you could get in touch with Matt Brown the coliseum director and say you would like to give $5,000 worth of advertising and get 2 tickets for a year to the "The Club".  Surely it isn't that easy but it wouldn't hurt to ask. Is there a formal process to barter with the Greensboro Coliseum?

If you would like to see what the Carlyle Club looks like CLICKHERE , it is now called "The Club" because Carlyle & Co is no longer in existence as a local high end jeweler in the area.

The Club

Unlike the Rhino, Yes!, and the N&R, Our State mag is apolitical and a good choice for barter.

News media barter is more personal than dollar payments for advertising. Media management itself can profit from the arrangement through attendance of events which creates a conflict of interest not to report negatively on Coliseum issues.
