MINNETONKA, MINN. – Wallace Carlson Printing is pleased to announce that it is one of 45 Minnesota companies, and the only provider of commercial printing and packaging solutions, selected as a “Premier Partner” in the NFL’s Super Bowl LII Business Connect Program.
Business Connect is the NFL’s Super Bowl supplier diversity program. It serves as a conduit for qualified, diverse businesses in Super Bowl host cities to compete for Super Bowl-related contracts and business. Wallace Carlson’s designation as an approved supplier has earned it a coveted spot in the Super Bowl LII Business Connect Resource Guide, a database that helps Super Bowl LII contractors and event producers, including the NFL, identify and select its local business partners in Minnesota. Super Bowl LII Business Connect also provides various networking and educational opportunities that prepare suppliers for their participation in the Super Bowl procurement process.
The field of Minnesota-based suppliers was narrowed down from 970 applicants to approximately 350 chosen suppliers, and from among those, only 45 were granted Premier Partner status. Wallace Carlson is the only commercial printer on the list of the 45 companies selected as Premier Partners. As a Premier Partner, Wallace Carlson has already had the honor of working with the Super Bowl LII Host Committee and the NFL in the printing of the Business Connect Showcase Guide and the Business Connect Resource Guide, which are provided to NFL contractors and event producers.
“We are honored to be showcased in this short and prestigious roster of Minnesota businesses. We not only bring diversity to the NFL’s Business Connect Program, as a woman-owned business, but also a proven track record in the commercial printing and packaging space,” said Ann Turbeville, CEO and owner of Wallace Carlson Printing. “We look forward to working with the Super Bowl LII Host Committee, the NFL, their corporate sponsors and contractors, and our fellow Twin Cities-area businesses, as the stage is set and all eyes turn to Minneapolis on February 4, 2018.”
Wallace Carlson is proud to be a Women’s Business Enterprise certified through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, the nation’s largest third-party certifier of U.S. businesses owned and operated by women. Turbeville leads with over 30 years of print experience.
