Onsite Sports Event Team Makes Vendor Selection Easier
When the sports event planning gets tough, the tough get to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
Planning a destination sporting event is not for the faint of heart. Events come with hundreds of moving parts and responsibilities, and even the most experienced planner can lose their way or become overwhelmed. Tapping into the resources of an onsite team is essential to planning a successful event, and that's when the assistance of a Convention and Visitors Bureau proves helpful.
Having a local, on-the-ground team who provides helpful tips and information is where the Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Sports Commission comes into play. Fully staffed and with years of experience, the team knows the ins and outs, and the pros and cons, of sports event planning. From the best times to hold an event to get the best rates and room discounts to site selection and marketing, these are not tall orders for the home team.
No matter if you're a professional event organizer, a civic group planning a tournament fundraiser or a high school coach planning a reunion tournament, you'll need a strong onsite team to help with the details.
Finding dependable vendors and suppliers is not an easy task when you're planning an event from out of the area. However, our team maintains a list of recommendations for tried and true, experienced vendors, making your job a little easier. When making your selections, compile a list of questions for vendors, including the ones below:
- What does your rate include?
- Do you provide payment plans and what are your deposit options?
- Are you licensed and insured?
- Have you ever provided services for this type of event? Are references available?
- Will any staffing be available to me?
