The Stoll Report on State-Level Event Funding was designed with you in mind. This debut report serves to bring you up to speed on everything you need to know about the rapidly evolving landscape of state-level event procurement funds while simultaneously serving as an advocacy tool for your organization.
We gathered all the current and relevant information on this topic and put it all in one place, with easy-to-understand insights and expert analysis. The report covers such information as types of event funds, recent fund activity, parameters, types of events for which funds are used, measuring ROI, and much more. It also serves as a benchmark through which future report editions and updates will be measured.
2022 was an important inflection point in the history of our association. After two years of being unable to host live events, we experienced significant pressure on the sustainability of our event-driven revenue organization.
Sports ETA’s mission is to be the essential resource and leading advocate for the sports events and tourism industry. In FY ‘22, we did just that:
Hosted six (6) live events
Including two (2) Symposiums
Unveiled the 2022 State of the Industry Report, which measured the 2020 and 2021 impact on the sports events and tourism industry and served as a benchmark for our 2019 study
Launched Sports Tourism Learning Institute (STLI), the industry’s education engine to transform, enrich and power member’s careers
Joined forces with industry partners to enhance advocacy and value for our members
Supported national tourism relevancy
Supported local and national youth sports initiatives to fuel participation
Smartcities & Sport, the world’s leading network connecting cities and sports, will host their annual summit in Lausanne, the Olympic Capital this October 24-26. The summit will gather 300+ participants including sports cities and international federations.
