Sprint Returns to the LA County Fair as Presenting Sponsor

LOS ANGELES – Aug.  26, 2016 – Sprint once again joins in the fun and festivities as a presenting sponsor of the LA County Fair, which runs September 2-25 and is projected to draw 1.3 million attendees from all over Southern California. 

Sprint will return to set up shop at the Shopping Fair in Hall 7, offering LA County Fair guests the latest wireless devices, accessories and services. Sprint will also be co-sponsor of “Wild Wednesdays,” where visitors can receive discounted admission and carnival rides on Wednesdays. Customers can pick up “Wild Wednesday” coupons at participating Sprint stores in Los Angeles and the Inland Empire. 

“We are excited for our return visit as a sponsor of this iconic and diverse L.A. attraction,” said Kevin Kunkel, president, Southern California at Sprint. “Fair goers are welcome at our booth in Hall 7 to cool down, take a break from the fair, charge their phones, check out our latest devices and accessories and learn how they can achieve Unlimited Freedom.”

Sprint continues to make great strides in Los Angeles to better serve wireless customers. As coverage has improved, so has Sprint’s network reliability. In fact, Sprint’s reliability now beats T-Mobile’s and performs within 1 percent of AT&T and Verizon. This is a dramatic improvement in the last two years, giving Sprint customers a significantly better experience than before when connecting and using their favorite mobile devices.
