SPORTS, TOURISM AND ENTERTAINMENT MARKETING
Over the past 30 years, sports travel has grown to a multi-billion industry and cities across the U.S. and community leaders are realizing the economic benefit of targeting this market segment by attracting major sports events and related meetings and conventions through the establishment of "sports commissions" since 1988. Diane McGraw was a pioneer in this industry having represented 4 major U.S. cities (Philadelphia, Orlando, Louisville and Los Angeles). Our goal is to enhance the reputation of your city as a major event destination, create measurable economic impact opportunities and secure events which generate significant hotel revenue and increase tourism.
