In the world of sporting events, the rules are much different than a traditional conference or event. Beginning with the unique factors of the initial bid details to the specific venue requirements, there is a variety of services that sporting groups require.
Both Sports Commissions and CVBs are key components to help make these events happen successfully in cities across the US. However, these organizations vary by city in terms of funding, services provided, overall abilities and staffing. These variations play a factor in determining what types of events can be accommodated. Each organization has its own specialties and niches to fulfill from state and regional to international sporting events.
