2018 CHAMPIONS OF ECONOMIC IMPACT IN SPORTS TOURISM

Sports Destination Management is proud to announce the 2018 “Champions of Economic Impact in Sports Tourism” award winners. An overwhelming number of nominations was received, all of which represented a variety of sports. And despite the fact there was so much variance in the type of event and athletes served, all had the common denominator of playing a vital role in the local economies where the events were hosted. Some also represent innovative events, including home-grown competitions with benefits that go well beyond simple economic impact. All these winners represent the most notable success stories and illustrate quantifiable results from each of the event-destination partnerships. Working together, these event organizers and host destinations achieved outstanding economic impact, an exceptional experience for athletes and spectators, media attention to the destination and much more.
