Sports Commissions, CVBs, and event directors all understand the importance of getting “heads in beds” – but are you offering the best tools to maximize event pick-up and enhance the booking experience? In this session, you’ll get a basic overview of all things sports housing – From offering an internal housing system, to partnering with third-party providers, to best practices for working directly with hoteliers. We’ll walk through a basic room block management roadmap and explore ways to use a housing system as a destination marketing tool. Hear from an experienced hotelier on how you can better work with hotel partners in the sports market. Learn about additional booking solutions that can work in place of or in addition to a housing system to help increase tracking, create revenue, and offer post cut-off options for those last minute bookings. No two destinations are the same and different solutions work for different organizations – Let’s explore the options to find what could work for you!
