COVERING THE CIC: January 23-26

We at the Cross Insurance Center enjoy this busy time of year and love to see all of you from this wonderful state we call home.

Thank you to everyone who attended the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce Awards Dinner, MPA Class B, C, & D Regionals, the Bangor Wedding Show, and UMaine Women’s basketball game vs UMBC. Without you, we could not do what we love, which is providing a venue for great entertainment and memories that will last a lifetime.

We also wanted to take the time to thank all those amazing media members that have stopped by and covered events at the CIC this past week.  Thank you for all your great work and we look forward to working with you all many more times in the future!

Here’s is just a sampling of all the great coverage from all over the state:

A BIG thank you to Sam Rogers for coming to talk with our General Manager Tony Vail and Assistant General Manager Rob Copeland on all the work it takes to change-over our arena for various events (like the BRCC Dinner, MPA Cheering, and UMaine Basketball), all while hosting simultaneous shows.  It’s not easy, but we’re planning on having more events and having busier times in the future!
