Going Virtual to Create A New Event Called Virtual Artistic Swimming

 Posted on: June 23 2021
Going Virtual to Create A New Event Called Virtual Artistic Swimming By Baylee Robinson, Events & Membership Director, USA Artistic Swimming Looking back at 2020 and what we all went through is overwhelming, but it also shows how resilient the sport industry can be. Last year was full of planning, cancelling, planning again, moving, postponing and transitioning into a virtual world.

In other words, sports events and tourism’s primary objective was to solicit non-local travelers to a destination resulting in maximum room-night generation – commonly referred to as “heads in beds.”  As the industry has evolved, it has become apparent that hosting sporting events in a certain locale provides deeper value than solely counting heads in beds. However, despite the growing body of evidence underscoring the widening value of sports events and tourism efforts on the local community, industry-accepted expanded metrics of success have significantly lagged.  Confining the scope of industry success to room nights presents several limitations...
