Here's What Our Team Can Do For You
Make Tourism Vancouver your first point of contact for a successful sport event. Our team will help you streamline your efforts, saving valuable time and ensuring that you deliver an unsurpassed sport experience in Vancouver. Below are just some of the ways in which our team can help.
Bid Assistance and Site Selection
Our team can coordinate site inspections and organize bid presentation packages detailing the advantages of selecting Vancouver as your sport event destination, as well as opportunities for pre- and post-event travel.
Facilities and Accommodation Bookings
Our Request for Proposals (RFP) distribution system ensures you find the best sporting venues and accommodation matches for your event.
Tourism Vancouver will help you build excitement for your upcoming sporting event or meeting through marketing materials and online tools. For large events, we offer on-site promotion or attendance-building at the event prior to the one to be held in Vancouver.
Sport Event Tools
Tourism Vancouver has access to state-of-the-art tools through partnerships with Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance (CSTA), and Sport Web. Examples include a business plan template for staging a sporting event and “STEAM - Sport Tourism Economic Assessment Model.”
Hosting BC is a grant program for organizations interested in staging national and international sport events in British Columbia. Tourism Vancouver can assist you with your application for funding.
