More than 900 members and events rights holders attended the 2016 NASC Sports Event Symposium in Grand Rapids to elect new NASC leadership, honor members with national awards and participate in dozens of continuing education programs led by industry leadership.

“As the only only not-for-profit trade association for the sport tourism industry offering an annual meeting for serious-minded sport tourism professionals, we enjoyed a week of educational programs to share best practices in the industry as well as honoring those doing great work in our member communities,” said Don Schumacher, CSEE, executive director of the NASC. “In future years, our
members will have the opportunity to visit three fantastic American cities in Sacramento, Minneapolis and San Diego as we host our annual Symposium in each city.”

The Symposium Committee is currently developing the schedule, recommended pricing structure and other important elements of the planning process. The Board of Directors will be reviewing and approving recommended pricing at its Summer Board Retreat in July. 2017 registration rates will be announced in August and registration will open on September 1.

The Site Selection Committee for the 2020-2021 Symposium bid process has been formed and will be releasing the RFP later this summer. Members interested in hosting the Symposium should contact Lori Gamble, Associate Executive Director, at for any questions about site selection.

Future Symposium Dates:

25th annual NASC Symposium - March 27-30, 2017 - Sacramento, CA
26th annual NASC Symposium -  April 23-26, 2018 - Minneapolis, MN
27th annual NASC Symposium -  April 15-18, 2019 - San Diego, CA
