NASC Sports Symposium Brings Potential Leads for Events in Clermont County
With a significant portion of the travel industry based on the sports sector, it is essential for destination marketing organizations to meet with and generate business from sports commissions representatives and other industry partners. The National Association of Sports Commissions (NASC) serves more than 800 sports destinations, vendors, and event owners, both domestically and internationally.
Jeff Blom, President of the Clermont County Convention and Visitors Bureau, attended the NASC Sports Symposium May 6th-9th in Knoxville, Tennessee. Throughout the week, he had the chance to meet with hundreds of decision-makers responsible for organizing sports events. Attendees also had the opportunity to network, attend educational sessions, exchange ideas and drive more business at one of the largest gatherings of top executives in the sports events and tourism industry.
“The NASC Sports Symposium is one of the best conferences and marketplace for doing business in the sports events and tourism industry. I had 36 appointments with sports events and vendors at the symposium,” states Blom. “Last year, we booked two events from the conference. This year, we fully anticipate booking five or more sports events for Clermont County in 2020 and beyond.”
As more developments are being made in the area, sports business is set to grow in years to come. With improving facilities at Tealtown Ball Park, Olympic Fields, the almost complete FC Cincinnati Mercy Health Training Facility, and the upcoming USRowing National Championships at East Fork State Park this July, it’s a great time for sports in Clermont County.
