I received an interesting email the other day:
Bill (I’ve changed his name) wrote:
“I’m skeptical specifically because all the web info I see is from the many,
many, MonoVie distributor sites, and not the teams themselves.
I went to the Rockets partner page, and MonaVie is nowhere to be found. I emailed Jason Krohll, the Rockets Sr Director of premium sales and services. He
just sent this back to me:
We do have a partnership with Mona Vie thru our building, Toyota Center. MonaVie is the energy drink we serve here for all Toyota Center events including Rockets games.
Hope this helps,
This is pretty clear to me that they only have a vending partnership for the Toyota Center, which is not the same thing as the Houston Rockets basketball team.”
To back up Bill’s point, I decided to look into the claim. I noticed that MonaVie had an official announcement of the partnership where it read:
“MonaVie EMV web banners will also be featured on www.rockets.com, and the healthy energy drink will have a presence at several community events.”
However an inspection of The Houston Rocket’s Partner Page and Bill’s quote from Jason Krohll seems to show that MonaVie is misrepresenting something here. It’s surprising to me that they’d really be misrepresenting this because it’s fairly easy to buy a partnership with the Rockets. Is it possible that MonaVie’s check bounced?
