2020 Member Awards

2019 award winners were announced at the 27th annual Sports Event Symposium in Knoxville, TN on May 7 during the Keynote Luncheon.

Each year, Sports ETA honors organizations and individuals in the sports events and tourism industry to celebrate their accomplishments and achievements.

The 2020 Member Awards activities, events, marketing campaigns, web strategies, etc. must have occurred between January 1 and December 31, 2019. If you are interested in submitting what you've accomplished for more than the 2019 calendar year and/or spanning your entire career, please submit a nomination for the Sports ETA Hall of Fame (see below).

The independent judging panel is looking for impact regardless of size of budgets or your staff size and encourage organizations of all sizes to participate. Smaller organizations can make a big impact – especially with less dollars or manpower to accomplish similar results of larger organizations.
