Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance Conference

1. Who normally attends Sport Events Congress? Is this conference a good fit for me?

Sport Events Congress attracts delegates from a variety of sectors:

  • Events rights holders (organizations/companies who own the rights to sporting events and are seeking potential host cities to partner with them to host their next event. Events range from community level sporting competitions such as minor hockey tournaments to international elite sporting events to conferences and meetings and special events).
  • Sport Tourism and Economic Development professionals (people who are working to promote their city/town as a destination for sport events and are interested in hosting events)
  • Suppliers to the Sport Tourism Industry (companies who offer services to the sport tourism industry, such as hotels, airlines, magazines, event marketing firms, etc.)
  • Education sector and researchers (students, professors and researchers who are in the tourism or sports administration fields).

Over 400 delegates attend Sport Events Congress each year. See breakdowns below: (Click to enlarge)

2. What is the difference between Sport Events Exchange and the Trade Show?

Sport Events Exchange is a business-to-business marketplace that provides an opportunity for events rights holders (sellers) and municipalities (buyers) to meet one-on-one to explore sport events hosting opportunities. Participants are assigned brief appointments to conduct a short business meeting. The format is similar to ‘speed dating’ whereby both parties have a short period of time (8-10 minutes) to determine if there is potential to work together and then a bell rings prompting people to move on to their next appointment. CSTA sets aside 3-4 hours of time during Sport Events Congress for the Exchange and all participants must pre-register in advance.

The trade show at SEC offers companies the opportunity to set-up kiosks and promote their products and services to SEC delegates during the conference. Each year, approximately 30 exhibitors take part in the trade show and pay the appropriate fees for their kiosk space that is allocated to them in the trade show area. Conference delegates are encouraged to visit booths, pick-up promotional material and speak with company reps who are exhibiting. The trade show starts on day 1 of the Congress and runs throughout the event, but sessions and other presentations occur concurrently with the trade show so most of the trade show traffic is generated during refreshment breaks, breakfast and lunch and during the trade show social/networking event. Exhibit space normally sells out well in advance of the Congress so any company interested in exhibiting should confirm their intentions to CSTA at least 5 months prior to the Congress.
