Why Teaming Up with Us is a Home Run for Your Event
Gulf Shores & Orange Beach
Sports event planning is one of those jobs where the tasks never seem to end. Even once the tournament or championship is over and trophies have been awarded, there are still boxes to check off. Before you know it, it's already time to start planning the next one!
When you need an extra set of hands, consider teaming up with the Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Sports Commission. Our staff has decades of experience in sports planning and tourism and can help you get those tasks marked off your list.
Choosing your destination is probably step one on your list of things to do. Our home team is happy to arrange site visits, as well as visits with potential vendors, restaurants and attractions you may consider for your next sporting event. Alabama’s white-sand beaches are a natural draw for many events. They allow families the opportunity to combine a tournament with a vacation and get a two-for-one experience. It’s more bang for the buck and makes the destination even more attractive to potential attendees.
Marketing your sporting event is, many times, one of the last priorities on a planner’s list. It’s easy to get so tied up in the details of the event that spreading the word falls to the wayside. However, marketing is an integral part of hosting a successful sports tournament. Our team can provide you with a list of local media contacts, as well as provide you with digital postcards to build anticipation for your event. Send these postcards to your potential athletes and families to showcase your event, as well as the destination. In addition, we can provide area photography and video to use when marketing your event through social media, registration websites and email blasts. We can even provide complimentary welcome bags filled with coupons, discounts and area information as an added touch for your attendees.
When you want to plan a winning event and need a little assistance, contact the sales team at the Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Sports Commission. Not only do we have a toolbox filled with all the information and assets you need, but the team brings years of sports event planning experience to the table. It’s a win/win for everyone!
