Connect Sports Marketplace, an annual sports tourism conference, is a highly respected event that brings together NGBs, sports planners and rights holders, suppliers and experts in sports events for three days of general sessions, best practice breakouts, roundtables, workshops, pre-set appointments and networking. The appointment-only sports tourism marketplace, is where RFPs are placed, dates are secured and relationships are developed for future business. The focus on education at Connect Sports Marketplace allows you to brush up on your skills, learn about trending topics, get great business advice from speakers, and enjoy networking with other industry professionals.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Qualified rights holders and sports planners pay a $200 registration fee that will be returned at the end of the conference if all appointments are kept. Our travel services team pays for and books flights and hotel rooms for planners. Destination representatives from across the country book their own travel upon registering. Event updates, including speaker information and appointment schedules, will be regularly updated on this site and communicated with registered attendees by email prior to the event. Once on-site in Grapevine, Connect staff members will explain the show’s format and keep everyone on track. If you’re an NGB, please contact Patrick Higgins at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss registration.
