SEATTLE, Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Zeacon, an interactive live streaming, location-based, and DigiCal (digital + physical) experiences company, and the Washington Athletic Club (WAC), Seattle's premier private social and athletic club, are teaming up to host a live-streamed, virtual series featuring the Seattle Kraken, the National Hockey League's (NHL) newest franchise that will begin play in 2021 at Climate Pledge Arena. This two-part, online event will give an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at what's been happening within the Kraken as they prepare for their inaugural season and also what it will take for Climate Pledge Arena to be the first arena in the world to be net Zero Carbon certified.
"We are delighted to partner with the WAC and the Seattle Kraken, two outstanding Seattle-area organizations, to highlight what it takes to successfully launch a professional expansion team that competes at the national level," said Kris Naidu, Zeacon CEO. "This will also be a great opportunity to virtually showcase Climate Pledge Arena, which serves as a reminder to all on the urgent need for climate action. As a socially-responsible company which has supported many worthy causes, this collaboration with the WAC, Seattle Kraken, and Climate Pledge Arena, is the latest example of how Zeacon Intelligently Connects CommunitiesTM."
Presented by Zeacon, the two-part live virtual event begins Thursday, October 29th at 6:30pm with presentations from Climate Pledge Arena's Vice President of Marketing, Rosie Selle, and the Seattle Kraken's Vice President of Corporate Partnerships, Jeff Webster. WAC President & CEO, Chuck Nelson, will moderate the evening live from the WAC.
In addition to being home to the Seattle Kraken, Climate Pledge Arena will also serve as the new home of four-time WNBA champions, the Seattle Storm, and host the biggest names in the music and entertainment industries.
The live stream series concludes with a "Deeper Dive" inside the Seattle Kraken, featuring the franchise's Vice President of Marketing, Heidi Dettmer and Todd Humphrey, Senior Vice President of Digital Fan Experience. Both will share what has been happening behind the scenes at the Kraken organization and the sheer excitement surrounding the return of professional hockey to Seattle. This virtual discussion, scheduled for Monday, November 9th at 6pm, will again be moderated by Chuck Nelson and powered by Zeacon.
The November live-streamed event features a take-home box to complement the virtual with physical goodies -- arena concession snacks, hockey giveaways, and other surprises.
