WASHINGTON AVENUE ARMORY ANNOUNCES NAMING RIGHTS
OPPORTUNITY
Partnership will offer brands a unique marketing advantage in New York’s Capital Region

ALBANY, N.Y. (July 14, 2014) – The Washington Avenue Armory will begin to accept bids for naming
proposals for the Washington Avenue Armory, the Capital Region’s largest privately-owned arena. The
arena is seeking at least $100,000 annually in naming rights fees, with the length of term open for
negotiation.

“The Armory presents an incredible opportunity for either a local or national brand to get in front of
thousands who either attend our events or drive by our location in Downtown Albany,” said Michael Corts,
general manager of the Armory.

The Armory was constructed in 1890 in Downtown Albany. It is currently listed on the National Register of
Historic Places. The arena complex is the second largest civic center in Downtown Albany and is
conveniently located three blocks from the New York State Capitol. The arena complex is considered
extremely versatile – offering three different levels; including the main arena, executive parlors for
events/meetings and 10 conference rooms.

The Armory averages 65,000 attendees per year, with a projected 100,000 attendees by 2015. More
importantly, the Armory and its signage are seen by 39,147 vehicles daily (AADT) and thousands of
pedestrians each day.
