Best of 2012 (Page 5)

The 2012 Best of Awards have been announced. Find out who our panel has selected as Best Act, Best Team Operations and five other categories.

Best Act:

The touring act or halftime show that excels in providing quality entertainment for your fans. Touring acts, halftime acts and non-mascot performers are considered. Consider drawing power, quality, cooperation of the act, media, and value.

Winner: Cameron Hughes

18 years ago a young Cameron Hughes took a chance.  He stood up at a Ottawa Senators game and started cheering like a lunatic.  Since then Cameron has been refining and amping up his act to become one of the most sought after touring acts in sports.

Cameron now has over 1000 games under his belt, including NBA, NHL, professional baseball, the Olympics and the US Open.  He’s proven able and ready to adapt his act to get any crowd excited by sharing his own brand of pure energy and enthusiasm.  One team executive identified Cameron as his “secret weapon” when they need an extra boost for their in-arena experience.  Another panelist noted he’s one of the only acts who “changes the game”, teaching your existing fans that it is okay to yell… scream… cheer… dance… and act crazy.  He’s an act that team executives wish they had in the building every night.

Unlike every previous winner in this category, Cameron makes his name in the stands with the fans and not on the center stage of the court.  This helps create a unique experience that has left fans confused, enthused and amused worldwide and has helped Cameron Hughes to the top the touring act category in 2012.
