The first true sports venue directory specifically tailored towards the sports tourism industry is set to launch this spring of 2020 with a lot of features we think event owners and destinations alike will use regularly. As an event owner myself who knows the struggle of tirelessly searching google maps to seek out venues for future events in priority regions, a tool like this is long overdue and should be a huge time saver while putting more information at your fingertips than otherwise exists at one location!
About the Sports Venue Review
The Sports Venue Review directory will be a quick access guide to sports venues across the United States primarily, but open to international submissions as well. Developed by current and former event owners who recognized there were few to no tools available for event owners to hunt down sports venues with the amenities they needed in a reasonable way. Similarly many cities, convention and visitors bureaus and sports commissions expressed a frustration in getting good information about their venues into priority event owners hands to answer many of the questions they have before they’re asked.
Event Owners & Tournament Organizers
A free tool to event owners, you will have the ability to search by targeted areas, find venues near you by geolocation, filter by popular amenities and features specific to the venue that is otherwise hard to find information on, view photos and videos for listings that submitted them, and contact the city or managing organization directly through the website. You can save your favorite venues to your dashboard as well to keep all your targeted destinations in one convenient location, and even review venues letting others know about your experiences and who you’d recommend!
Sports Venue Managers and Destinations
For organizations who own, manage or utilize sports venues in your area who are looking to fill with events to drive local or traveling participants, the Sports Venue Review will be a new marketing tool for you to connect with event owners worldwide. At launch there will be a free basic listing for every venue in your inventory and ability to upgrade to premium listings individually or in large packages for a small fee to post additional information and perks sure to help new clients find you. The pricing is targeted to be low enough that one lead turned booked client would more than pay for a full year of listings for multiple venues.
The listing process is extremely quick and easy, with a built in user dashboard ready to add listings, manage your profile, create events for each venue as a way to feature them as well, along with ways to feature and advertise your hottest venues in different areas like the homepage, top of search results and more.
