· In attendance will be several event organizers, including members of the NCAA, Indiana Sports Corp, Indiana Host Committee, Horizon League and IUPUI.
· Barb Stahl, a local artist, will be making two paintings of the logo before the game for fans to view as they enter Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Stahl will be working on the paintings in the entry way before the game for fans to see on their way in and will have displayed for fans as they exit.One of the paintings will hang at Bankers Life Fieldhouse through the Women’s Final Four, while the other will be used for promotional purposes in Indianapolis over the next 10 months.
· Organizers will have a concourse table which will include a large logo backdrop where fans can “dot the logo” with a basketball similar to how people can be the “I” in “Indy.” These photos will then be used on social media and on the videoboard throughout the game. The concourse table will also have ticket information. Upper bowl tickets for the Women’s Final Four will be on sale at the game along with additional presale opportunities and enter to win tickets. A mosaic poster featuring the 2016 Women’s Final Four logo will be given away to those who visit.
