Naming Rights Up for Grabs

Gillette, WY – Developers of the new Cam-plex Multi-Event Center in Gillette are hoping to sell the naming rights to the facility. But general manager Dan Barks says it won't be easy to find a big-name, big-money sponsor because of Gillette's remote location and low population. Barks says it might prove easier if the facility was along Interstate 90, which it is not. Barks says he's heard estimates that the facility might get two (M) million dollars for naming rights. That revenue would come in handy. The Cam-plex was budgeted at 22 (M) million dollars, but rising construction costs have pushed the estimated price to 32 (M) million.
