Last week we launched our first local marketing campaign for Google Places in Portland, Oregon. To kick things off, we teamed up with the Portland Trail Blazers the night of launch to announce Hotpot Jackpot Portland, a contest to reward our top users. When fans walked into the Rose Garden arena, they were greeted by a "red out," or 22,000 red Trail Blazers and Hotpot Jackpot branded t-shirts draped over seats.
Here's a video of Tom Fletcher, vice president of corporate partnerships for the Trail Blazers, talking on Trail Blazers TV about Google coming to town and partnering with his team.
