The 2023 edition of Sports Planning Guide (SPG) has arrived. This latest release is packed to the brim with nearly 400 pages of in-depth coverage of sports destinations across the United States, which includes 12 individual state guides and hundreds of tournament-ready venues.

For well over a decade, SPG has been providing both print and digital editions of its annual guide, allowing everyone easy access to the top information in the sports tourism game. Within the guide, event planners will find features written by experts in the field, covering multiple trending topics, including the esports facilities surge, the importance of sustainable practices for sports venues and events and more.

“Sports Planning Guide is the premier publication in sports tourism,” said Jason Paha, chief editor at Premier Travel Media. “SPG’s comprehensive stories and industry-leading Site InSpections feature the most up-to-date information on venues and attractions across the country. The 2023 edition of SPG, and our popular, mobile-friendly website, set the standard for coverage of the sports tournament industry.”

Each destination within the new guide features Site InSpections—each one diving deep into a venue to provide all of the specs and other important details and analysis that event planners are looking for. To hammer it home, planner perspectives supply secondary insight into each destination and how they stack up, and additional popular activities are listed for each locale, showcasing an all-rounded approach to the discovery roadmap SPG has laid out.

“Our collection of talented and experienced writers provides readers with the latest news, the freshest trends and the most in-depth stories that make every destination shine,” Paha continued. “Nobody can beat our insider perspective and no one can match the look of our product.”
