5 Tips for Planning a 2019 Tournament on Alabama’s Beaches
Planning a sports tournament or event can seem a daunting task. But have no fear.
We have five tips to make organizing your next competition in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach a walk in the park.
1) Use the Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Sports Commission as a resource. You won’t find a more dedicated team of professionals to help you plan and execute your premier sports competition. Whether you’re a professional event organizer or the local coach, the Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Sports Commission staff is here to assist you from start to finish.
2) Score great rates on lodging for your participants. With more than 17,000 accommodations to choose from, you’ll find the best rate for your event. And our partners and sponsors will roll out the welcome mat for your teams and their families.
3) Let us assist with finding venues for opening ceremonies, awards banquets, coaches meetings and team registration.
4) Take advantage of grants. What’s that? You read it right. Depending on the size and specifications of your event, we provide grants of cash and in-kind services to assist in reducing costs associated with your event. Grant recipients can direct more funds toward marketing the event and increasing event registration.
