NBT Bank Box Office at Mohegan Sun Arena as Bank Prepares for March Brand Transition
WILKES-BARRE (February 14, 2014) – Pennstar Bank and The Luzerne County Convention Center today announced the transition of the naming-rights of the venue box office at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza to NBT Bank. The official name of the box office will be the “NBT Bank Box Office at Mohegan Sun Arena.”
The transition of the box office naming rights is one aspect of Pennstar Bank’s larger brand transition to NBT Bank, the name of its parent bank, scheduled to be completed on March 10, 2014. Pennstar Bank engaged in a five-year agreement with the LCCCA for the box-office naming-rights which took effect on July 1, 2010.
“Our relationship with the Mohegan Sun Arena has helped us further connect with our customers and community members and demonstrate our collective interest in supporting the events and activities that bring us together and make lasting memories,” said David Raven, Pennstar Bank president and chief executive officer. “NBT Bank looks forward to continuing its partnership with the LCCCA to support the area’s growth.”
“We have been honored to have the Pennstar Bank name on the box office for the past three and one half years and are equally excited as we transition to the new NBT Bank Box Office at Mohegan Sun Arena,” said Donna Cupinski, board chairman of the Luzerne County Convention Center Authority.
