Say Hello to the NEX-TECH WIRELESS GRANDSTAND.  The Kansas State Fair is pleased to announce a long term partnership with Nex-Tech Wireless based in Hays, KS.  Nex-Tech Wireless is the new sponsor of the Grandstand and the Official Wireless Provider of the Kansas State Fair.   “We welcome Nex-Tech Wireless as a valued Partner with the Kansas State Fair” exclaimed Denny Stoecklein, General Manager.  “Partners such as Nex-Tech Wireless enable us to continue the tradition of presenting an event each September that delivers ten days of family fun, outstanding commercial and competitive exhibits, as well as, exciting entertainment.”         

Nex-Tech Wireless and the Kansas State Fair began their partnership in 2014.   In addition to the Grandstand naming rights, they will continue to be the sponsor of the Nex-Tech Wireless Stage at Lake Talbott featuring free entertainment throughout the Fair.   

"Nex-Tech Wireless is a Kansas based company providing nationwide wireless services.  We have nearly 50 locations throughout central and western Kansas, including a new location in Hutchinson.  The grandstand sponsorship is just one of many ways that we can give back and support events and organizations that are important to the communities we serve,” explained Jon Lightle, C.E.O., Nex-Tech Wireless. “We believe it is a nice fit to partner with the largest annual event in Kansas.  We not only look forward to a long term relationship with the Kansas State Fair, but we are anxious to meet fellow Kansans and all our customers each September.”
