In Case You Missed It: Partner Sue Beesley recognized for her involvement in the Super Bowl Village
Posted in Government

Congratulations and a ‘super’ thank you are due to partner Sue Beesley for her involvement in the planning and execution of the Super Bowl Village during the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis.

In case you missed it, the Indianapolis Business Journal highlighted the success of the Super Bowl Village in a recent article. The IBJ notes that the village was so popular that “[l]eague officials said a Super Bowl Village like the one in downtown Indianapolis for this year's event will now be a requirement for future cities hosting the big game.” Sue worked with fellow host committee members to execute the plans for the village leading up to the big game. At Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP, we are committed to the communities we serve. Thank you, Sue, for extending that commitment to the Super Bowl Village through your hard work, time and innovation.

Once the group developed the village plan in late 2007 and early 2008, Dilts and Fuson, along with Bingham McHale partner Sue Beesley, were charged with executing the plan. Shiel Sexton loaned the host committee an employee, Shawn Hitchcock, for two years to build the village piece by piece.

Melangton said there are two reasons it won’t be easy for other host cities to replicate Indianapolis’ Super Bowl Village. First, Melangton said, the layout of cities like New York, Dallas and Miami could make it difficult to create “a center of energy.”

But Melangton thinks other host cities may have a bigger challenge.

“We are very fortunate here that we have a lot of people here who have been to a lot of big events, have a lot of diversified experience and a lot of great ideas,” Melangton said. “We have a collection of people who are really innovative thinkers that I think is going to be difficult to replicate.”
