Audience: Employee Appreciation Day
Location: Sydney, Nebraska
Cabela's was in search of a popular sports star who was also a well known outdoorsman. After several sports celebrity recommendations, Cabela's hired Direct Sportslink to secure Bo Jackson for their annual employee appreciation day. Bo was fantastic. He spent the entire afternoon with their employees and even gave a motivational speech to the local high school football team. Please review the Bo Jackson appearance testimonial above from Cabela's.
At Cabela's, we have extremely high standards of customer service with the vendors we work with. Direct Sportslink provided the quality we expect and the customer service we demand. Cabela's seeks to bring our employees something new and exciting every year at our company picnic and the feedback we received from bringing Bo Jackson to our event has been awesome. The energy at the office is at an all time high thanks to you. I would recommend Direct Sportslink to anyone looking for an expert in the sports celebrity marketplace.
