My Place Hotels Returns to Big Sky

The My Place Hotels Big Sky Football Kickoff Event to broadcast on Pluto TV Monday, July 15th, at 11:10 A.M. PT

ABERDEEN, S.D. (July 12, 2019) Following the inaugural season spent cheering alongside thousands of sports fans and athletes from Flagstaff to Portland, My Place Hotels will return as the Official Hotel Sponsor of the Big Sky Conference for the 2019-2020 season! The brand will also return as Title Sponsor of the 2020 Big Sky Conference Basketball Championships presented by My Place Hotels next March.

Fans of the brand and conference can watch the announcement and interviews with Big Sky Conference Commissioner Tom Wistrcill and My Place VP of National Sales, Daniel Hilsendeger live during the My Place Hotels Big Sky Football Kickoff on the Big Sky Conference channel 531 via Pluto TV, beginning at 11:10 AM PT on July 15.

The announcement of My Place’s return as major sponsors of the Big Sky Conference arrives on the heels of Stay Rewarded®, the brand’s recently-launched loyalty rewards program. With a prolific growth trajectory throughout and beyond Big Sky country this season, conference fans and athletes will watch their biggest supporters grow from 50 to over 75 hotels nationwide—where their loyalty will be rewarded for every qualified stay.

My Place experienced outstanding support from the Big Sky Conference and its fans throughout the 2018-2019 season, ramping up during the 2019 Big Sky Conference Basketball Championships presented by My Place Hotels. My Place’s sponsorship of the Big Sky Conference this past season came at an opportune time, sensationalized by a growing audience and viewership between both institutions. The 2019 Big Sky Conference Basketball Championship increased in excess of 35% in overall attendance, in pace with My Place’s expansion across key markets throughout the Western United States and country as a whole. With a shared vision of growth, one thing is for certain, both institutions are catering to larger audiences than ever before.

“We believe in Big Sky. Cheering on its member institutions from the sidelines at the 2019 Big Sky Conference Basketball Championships was an experience that illustrates why we chose to become their biggest supporters,” said My Place Hotels President and CEO Ryan Rivett. “While their determination to serve the athletes, alumni, and nationwide fans aligns with our own, we find their vision for growth most compelling. It’s a real honor to support that vision, knowing it will impact the lives of many who have created lifelong memories at Big Sky events just as we have.”

The 2020 Big Sky Conference Basketball Championships presented by My Place Hotels will return to the CenturyLink Arena, downtown Boise, March 9-14, 2020 as competing men’s and women’s basketball teams from all 11 full-member institutions compete for the championship title. In addition to championship-specific engagements for the brand throughout the week in Boise, fans can expect to see My Place signage and advertisements across all 16 of Big Sky’s sports throughout the 2019-2020 season in many capacities.

“The Big Sky Conference is excited to announce that My Place Hotels has returned as a proud sponsor of the Big Sky Conference,” said conference commissioner Tom Wistrcill. “My Place Hotels came on board last school year and did an amazing job in the promotion of our institutions, athletic teams and sport championships. We are excited for this partnership to continue during the 2019-20 school year.”

The excitement of My Place’s continued partnership with the Big Sky Conference will extend across the country as My Place shows their appreciation for the conference and its devoted fans in announcing a new celebratory promotion, offering fans the ability to save 10% off their nightly stay between August 1st, 2019 and March 15th, 2020 using promo code GOBIGSKY when booking online at or contacting participating hotels directly.
