Three Ways Our Team Helps Your Event Team
There are many benefits that come with having your sporting event on the Alabama Gulf Coast.
Spacious white-sand beaches, the convenience to shopping and dining, and assistance provided to planners by the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Sports Commissionaire all positives for organizing a tournament. Let our team help your event team plan something memorable.
The beach is the ideal location to get teams excited about participating in your event. It’s a win/win for teams, coaches, spectators and planners.
There are a variety of services the Sports Commission offers event coordinators. If you’re planning a sports event in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach or Fort Morgan, here are three ways our team can help your event team.
1.) Qualifying events can reduce the cost of hosting with the help of grants offered by the Sports Commission. Grant funding is considered for amateur, collegiate and professional athletic events. Certain criteria must be met in order to qualify for both in-kind and financial grants.
2.) Through an already existing and respected partnership with the cities of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism and Coastal Alabama Business Chamber, the Sports Commission makes it convenient to execute all size events with ease. Professional public relations supports provides crucial information when executing sporting events in the area.
3.) Event organizers have their hands full as it is and when you add the needs of social media, it can be overwhelming and time consuming. The team at the Sports Commission creates pre-packaged social media content for planners, as well as sponsors. Sponsors share out this information to welcome your teams to the beach. They provide you with accurate information while reaching potential participants through Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
When you consider the hard work associated with planning a sports event, consider utilizing the support of our team. In addition to grants, public relations and social media, the Sports Commission staff can assist your team with group rate accommodations, welcome bags, event promotions, volunteers, local vendor contacts and so much more. Let our team help your event team bring your event to the Alabama Gulf Coast.
