The WNBA All-Star Weekend and 3 Point Productions have collaborated once again to ensure fans and the city of Seattle are entertained throughout the All-Star Weekend.
SEATTLE, Wa.- Pat Walker, who is the Co-founder of 3 Point Productions and Creative Director Matt Hauer are excited for what will happen at the WNBA All Star Weekend.which is being held July 22 at KeyArena, home of the Seattle Storm.
“I am pretty excited that we could come together and form a unique experience for the fans,” said the eager Walker. “Each and every year, the fan experience gets bigger and that is something that we could build off.”
Walker and Hauer decided to brand the company after learning their craft working for the NBA’s Seattle SuperSonics. Pat Walker had spent some time with the Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Mercury, and Arizona Rattler’s game presentation department. He had so many ideas on how to brand a company that engages fans for an improved experience that he decided to take a leap of faith and started 3 Point Productions.
“It was not easy, but branding a business or going after something you love takes time, consistency, and risks,” said Walker. “You have to have a strong team effort and enjoy the process of building something from the ground up.”
Walker also explained the importance about coming together as a whole and accepting that the WNBA has some great talent, despite what critics have stated about the league.
“These ladies go out there and give it their all,” Walker said. “I mean they are very competitive and that is what we like here. The Seattle Storm is an example on how the community comes together. No matter what race, religion, status that you have we all support each other.” “You can see how the fans interact with the players on and off the court, so it is nice that the All-Star Game will be in Seattle for the first time. This community comes together in unity.”
Outside of the WNBA, 3 Point Productions have contributed to NBA All Star Weekend, Celebrity All-Star for BET Weekend, March Madness, and others. This company was built on determination and devotion, which has been a big factor with their success.
“It is a series of surrounding yourself with the right people, making sure that you strategic plan, and never stop dreaming,” Walker continued. “Progression is built with faith, hard work, and being dedicated to the progress.”
With the WNBA coming to Seattle in a couple of weeks, it will be interesting to see if the viewers for this weekend will sky rocket, because you have the best of the best playing on one court. The WNBA All-Star will take place at Key Arena.
“It is an honor to bring Verizon WNBA All-Star 2017 to Seattle, for our fans, our team and for this city. The combination of the city of Seattle and our passionate fan base will make this the perfect showcase for the best women’s basketball players in the world,” said Alisha Valavanis, Seattle Storm President & General Manager.
