The immediate focus of the alliance will be expansion into the North American market, and the development of a global Celebrity Partnership & Valuation service. The two parties will bring greater transparency and insight to the sponsorship industry’s most critical questions. Further announcements relating to these areas will be made in the coming weeks.
SponsorPulse Chief Executive Officer, Adam Mitchell, outlined the benefits for SponsorPulse clients: “The Turnstile team has a similar philosophy on the importance of bringing transparency to sponsorship decision-making. As we continue to scale our global consumer data products, this alliance was a natural fit that enables current and future clients to get a best-in-class integrated offering. Our clients will now have access to the power of Turnstile’s highly accurate global valuations, powered by over $USD2.5 billion dollars of sponsorship market benchmarks. Our aim is to provide our clients with the best sponsorship measurement solutions, and we think the alliance with Turnstile is an important part of this commitment.”

As we expand our regional footprint and broaden the properties we value, we need more consumer data to augment our existing proprietary insights program.
