ONE20 Truckers Are Delivering Big Game Excitement to Minneapolis

Minnesota technology startup is sending two drivers to the game on
February 4, 2018 and challenging transportation partners to do likewise

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#biggame–In addition to the 150,000 visitors expected to descend on Minneapolis
in February, thousands of truck drivers will be delivering tens of
thousands of tons of freight for the festivities. Unfortunately, few
drivers get to experience the excitement of the big game for themselves.

That’s why Minneapolis-based ONE20
– the nation’s largest free membership network of professional truck
drivers – is celebrating and rewarding the truckers who make the big
game happen, while challenging the entire trucking industry to do the
same. As the Twin Cities prepare to host the preeminent sports and
entertainment event of 2018, the company wants to make sure American
truckers are part of the action. ONE20 will be inviting two drivers to
the big game and giving dozens more access to the star-studded events.

As part of its ongoing efforts to champion the American truck driver and
bring awareness to the trials of life on the road, ONE20 has also
announced that it is the official trucking partner to On Location
Experiences (OLE) and Nomadic Entertainment’s Club NOMADIC at Mystic
Lake Casino Hotel, a 64,000-square-foot multi-level nightlife venue that
debuted in Houston earlier this year. ONE20 is planning to leverage this
partnership as a platform for giving drivers a prominent place in the
big game festivities. ONE20 and its trucking partners have already begun
hauling more than 65 truckloads of equipment, staging and materials from
Houston to Minneapolis; drivers began delivering Club NOMADIC the week
of Nov. 6.

“The American trucker is the unsung hero of every major event in the
United States, and this partnership will help show the world how much
work goes into producing the events that surround a championship game,”
said ONE20 founder and CEO Christian Schenk. “These events simply
wouldn’t happen without the thousands of drivers who deliver the entire
experience to fans. We are solidifying our commitment to improving life
on the road for drivers by ensuring that they can enjoy the fruits of
their labor, and we urge all transportation and logistics providers to
do the same.”

ONE20 will have a highly visible presence at Club NOMADIC and will be
hosting an exclusive event for drivers prior to the big game. In
addition, ONE20 is documenting the journey from Houston to Minneapolis
in a documentary film series, sharing drivers’ perspectives on their
role in bringing the game to a global audience of millions. As part of
its mission to celebrate the hard work and sacrifices drivers make,
ONE20 will be highlighting the stories of the individual drivers who
helped bring Club NOMADIC to Minneapolis and how they keep America
moving every day.

“There’s a tremendous amount of logistical work that goes into
constructing a 64,000-square-foot entertainment complex from the ground
up including gear and rigging, construction materials, food and beverage
deliveries, merchandise and outbound shipments after the game,” said
Jack Murphy, president, Nomadic Entertainment Group and the visionary
behind Club NOMADIC. “Delivery of each of these elements are
time-sensitive and critical to success. We’re thrilled to partner with
ONE20, not only through the valuable trucking service they provide, but
in their desire to tell the stories of the professional truck drivers
who work so hard to bring the ancillary elements to the host city to
entertain the droves of fans that descend on the big game.”

According to Fleet Owner magazine, the 2016 championship game in
San Francisco required more than 300 truck deliveries per day in just
the six days leading up to the event. There are thousands of drivers
working tirelessly to ensure a successful event. That’s why ONE20 is
also calling on its transportation partners – and any trucking company
working to deliver the excitement of the big game to Minneapolis – to
recognize the contributions drivers make to major events by extending
invites to them so they can see first-hand the event they helped make
happen.

“This is a challenge to the entire industry,” Schenk said. “If you’re a
true champion and advocate for drivers, then thank them for their
service with the ultimate prize. It’s a small price to pay for the work
they’ve put in to ensure the big game is a success.”
