Touchpoint Tour

By Jenn Alessi


At Touchpoint Media, we’re proud to boast clients from all across the United States. The added perk for us comes with trips to go meet them (everywhere is usually warmer than Minnesota March–April).

So far this spring, Touchpoint team members have been busy with travel and keeping up with clients near and far. The “Touchpoint Tour” began several weeks ago, when senior vice president Dave Jensen, senior editor and digital engagement manager Aaron Paitich, and senior account executive Bryan Nelson joined ice rink owners, managers, and operators in Columbus, Ohio, for the U.S. Ice Rink Association’s annual North American Rink Conference & Expo.

“As publishing partner of RINK Magazine, it’s always great to connect with our friends and colleagues in the ice rink industry,” Jensen said. “Our booth was full of lots on interaction, smiles and high fives throughout the course of the week as we touched base with colleagues who have become friends in the industry. We can’t wait for next year.”

In early June, a Touchpoint envoy including Jensen, Paitich, and editor Jessi Pierce will travel to Colorado Springs, Colo., for USA Hockey’s Annual Congress.

Paitich and Pierce, part of Touchpoint’s core editorial team for USA Hockey Magazine, Minnesota Hockey Journal and all hockey newsletters, are looking forward to seeing familiar faces in Colorado and learning more about what’s in store for the greatest game on ice.

“It’s a great time for USA Hockey right now. They continue to grow the game and increase membership to unprecedented numbers year in and year out, and we are thrilled to be a part of it,” Pierce said. “We’re excited about where we’re at currently with the publication and the digital components and newsletters, but are even more excited to continue to grow with the game and with USA Hockey and all member associations like Minnesota Hockey and Massachusetts Hockey.

“As Badger Bob Johnson used to say, ‘It’s a great day for hockey.’”

Make sure to drop us a line if you’ll be in Colorado Springs—we’d love to meet up!
