The Greenville Swamp Rabbits host 2nd Annual Business Power Play Presented by South State Bank

Greenville, S.C. | January 17, 2017 The Greenville Swamp Rabbits are excited to host the second annual Business Power Play event, presented by South State Bank. The event will be held on Thursday, February 16th at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena.

Business Power Play is a night that will bring together the business community, highlighting the important role local professionals’ play not only in economic development, but in the success of the Upstate. Part of that future success includes the involvement of Pulse Young Professionals a program of the Greenville Chamber’s Leadership Development. The program provides various networking opportunities throughout the year for YP’s to connect with peers and local business leaders. The Greenville Chamber’s Young Professionals will kick-off the year with a reception alongside business leaders before the game starts.

Local businesses provided tremendous support for last season’s event by participating as “Puck Promoters.” Similarly, as a part of their participation in the event, businesses receive a block of lower level tickets for the game, recognition throughout the evening and the opportunity to network among other Greenville businesses.

“We were thrilled with the support of last season’s Business Power Play, and we are excited to build on that success and have a great turnout this season,” said Chris Lewis, President and General Manager of the Swamp Rabbits. “This night provides a fun way for local companies to come together, network, share ideas and potentially create their own partnerships in a fun, exciting setting that provides a unique opportunity for business development.”

“We are excited to return as the presenting sponsor for Business Power Play and look forward to another successful event with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits,” said Mike Coggin, the Upstate regional president of South State Bank. “Business Power Play is a great way to celebrate the Greenville business community.”
