Veteran-Owned Business SpeedPro Partners with Chi-Town Rising to Showcase Hometown Pride
CHICAGO — December 29, 2016 — Following a successful inaugural celebration last year, Chi-Town Rising is building a new tradition for New Year’s in Chicago, an effort supported by local businesses and organizations who are committed to bettering their hometown. Privately funded and produced by Arena Partners, Chi-Town Rising has drawn on the support of businesses to add another marquee event to the city’s event calendar, and further position Chicago as a year-round visitor destination.
One impactful group in bringing the celebration to life is SpeedPro Chicago Loop, a large format digital graphics studio owned by a disabled veteran in the heart of Downtown Chicago.
“It is with great pride that we’ve partnered with so many companies and organizations that are not only headquartered in Chicago, but are driven to give back to our great city,” said John Murray, president, Arena Partners. “SpeedPro President Eric Lazar and the team at SpeedPro are a prime example of that commitment, and we are honored to be aligned with a like-minded organization.”
SpeedPro serves as the Official Signage Partner of Arena Partners and Chi-Town Rising, boasting a strong synergy between the two organizations through their expectation-exceeding work in the inaugural event last year. Both companies are committed to a long-term engagement to support promoting Chicago through Chi-Town Rising.
“While we were thrilled to have been chosen as the signage vendor last year, teaming up with Arena Partners and Chi-Town Rising as a partner going forward brings an even greater level of commitment between our companies,” said Eric Lazar, president, SpeedPro. “The event Arena Partners is producing serves as a tremendous driver for Chicago’s tourism and economy, and we’re honored to be able to contribute.”
