‘In The House’
Marketing a brand is a unique venture for any business, and the National Watermelon Association did
so with pizazz. Every person that walked into the
Hyatt regency New Orleans, adjacent to the homes
of the NFL’s Saints and NBA’s Pelicans knew right
away that Watermelon was in the house!
Along with the obvious marketing tools and
displays, the excitement of events filled the air,
especially during the annual seed spit contest.
Congratulations to our three winners, and thanks to
Seedway for sponsoring and running the contests
Thanks also to ALL of our sponsors, including Watermelon Water who provided their product at our
Opening Event, and to Tsamma who provided two
types of watermelon juice. Our crowd seemed to
enjoy both the water and the juices very much.
