Return to Play Study conducted by Grand Park Sports Campus and IUPUI Sports Innovation Institute
Returning to play is something many of us have been looking forward to, but it will come with changes. Due to COVID-19, many tournaments and recreational leagues are having to put new safety measures in place. As an event venue or organization, you will have to do the same. That is why Grand Park Sports Campus in Indiana and IUPUI Sports Innovation Institute teamed up to create a survey on what adaptations players and their families would want and not want.
After receiving thousands of responses, IUPUI SII put together a Kano Model using 12 adaptations (like increased sanitation, health screenings, allowing no spectators, etc.) and seei...

Creating and Communicating New Business Solutions in a Crisis
Wednesday, March 25, 2020
1:00 p.m. ET - 2:00 p.m. ET
Led by Jackie Reau, CEO, Game Day Communication
In these uncertain times surrounding COVID-19, we will discuss how...
Soccer, volleyball, gymnastics, destination management organization… what do all of these have in common?
Each one is competing to win the tournament, to win the meet, to win the event. Parents are spending an exorbitant amount of money on trainers, coaches, and advanced leagues to help their children excel in hopes of winning and future scholarships. Destination management organizations are investing hundreds of thousands (sometimes millions) of dollars to renovate and/or build the best sporting venues to attract large multi-day tournaments for multiple year contracts.
As destinations look to sports tourism as an option to increase overnight visitation, resulting in additional tax revenues for the destination, the question is often asked “should we invest in our current infrastructure or build new sports facilities?” If the answer is yes, then the question of “how do we pay for those infrastructure improvements” usually follows.
We continue our featured benefit for the month of August with a blog post on NASC Best Practices Webinars.
As the sport tourism industry's only association, the NASC emphasizes educational and professional development opportunities year-round that help make our members more effective in the business of bidding on, booking, and managing sporting events. The NASC uses a variety of platforms, including webinars, to share information with serious-minded sport tourism executives.
Best Practices Webinars focus on a trend or topic that is relevant and timely. Led by industry experts, the webinars are an educational tool that present solutions for sport tourism professionals with a common theme of industry best practices for a specific issue. After 15-20 minute presentations, participants engage in Q&A sessions to get answers to tough questions and are able to take away ideas that they can execute immediately.
Registration is free for all NASC members and $25 for non-members.
