Octagon is the leading Olympics & Action Sports athlete marketing agency in the industry, and has been at the forefront of representing and marketing Olympians since Olympic athletes were first allowed to pursue commercial opportunities. The agency has a proven history of building, communicating, and commercializing athlete-driven content and properties that have successfully maximized the marketability of Olympic athletes both domestically and internationally.
Octagon has helped to pioneer the assimilation of action sport athletes into the mainstream commercial marketplace. The agency has developed creative marketing solutions, from traditional endorsement deals to ground-breaking digital partnerships, effectively expanding the reach and relevance of action sports.
Olympic and Action Sport athletes are challenged by a lack of consistent relevant exposure. Octagon excels at developing and commercializing sustainable platforms for exposure, affording our clients the ability to maintain credibility while delivering results for business partners. The agency has been instrumental in breaking down barriers and building comprehensive marketing programs and campaigns for clients.
Communications is the most strategic element of the athlete marketing process. Octagon has demonstrated its ability to formulate key messages and package stories that provide meaningful exposure for clients while creating value for corporate and non-profit partners. Fully integrated marketing campaigns require strategic communications; it is the vital line between the athlete and the public, and for sustainable marketability, communications channels must be aligned to advance the strategic vision.
