Build it, and they will come!

Cities that host sporting events can see economic benefits such as infrastructure development, outside investment and prestige. Even smaller events bring spectators with participants who boost revenue for local businesses and services. But to get into the game they must build facilities and hope that they will draw events that lead to a positive return.

Investing in sports event tourism is a long-term commitment and having a strategic marketing outreach program can mean hosting events that result in many years of increased revenue. Contact us about how Sports Planning Guide can extend your reach to key decision makers.
