CINCINNATI (December 8, 2017) – The National Association of Sports Commissions (NASC), the only non-profit trade association for the sports events & tourism industry in the United States, has launched a new website, www.sportscommissions.org, to serve as an expanded resource for its membership.
“The NASC serves as the leading association for sports commissions, sports destinations, sports event owners and industry partners, and the new website will provide a comprehensive information for members, industry partners and media,” said Al Kidd, President & CEO of NASC. “The new site is a more contemporary and easier to navigate source of information and support tools. We plan to add additional Industry Pulse taking technology and tools to facilitate market and event analysis in 2018. This is a great start for our on-going evolution into a more progressive social and digital member engagement site.”
The website offers several updated features including: Economic Impact Calculator for Sports Events, annual event calendar, ability to regularly poll membership on key issues, Directories, Event RFP Database, Resource Library and a Career Center.
"We are delighted to share a new, modern, and easily navigable website with our members and industry stakeholders. The redeisgn allows us to present important information to our members and educate the general public about the impact our members make in their destinations, and on the spectators and participants who enjoy their sports events," said Elizabeth Young, Director of Membership and Marketing of NASC and project manager. "Improved search engine optimization will increase visibility and drive more traffic to the site. The new site would not be possible without tremendous support from our technology partners, Systems Insight and Pyxl, who helped us reimagine our website and bring our ideas to life."
New to the website includes information on new signature events offered by the NASC to better connect members around important industry issues:
• Chief Executives Summit, held annually, which provides an up close and intimate perspective about the issues facing sports and recreation today and tomorrow.
• Women’s Summit, to be held in March with the NCAA Women’s Final Four in Columbus, Ohio, which was developed by top women leaders in the sports events and tourism industry, the inaugural Summit to inspire other women to achieve career goals.
• 4S Summit, held annually, which features a focus on the areas of strategies, services, sales, and sponsorships.
The new website is also the home for the association’s education programs which include the Certified Sports Event Executive (CSEE) credential and the Annual Symposium to be held April 23-26, 2018 in Minneapolis.
