Dear Texas Sports Tourism Colleagues,


As our industry has been devastated over the last few weeks, and we have all been trying to figure out a way to navigate through uncharted waters, and as other states have strong coalitions of people working exclusively on the sports side of things, we felt it might be good to have a conference call amongst ourselves. Whether a small town, mid-sized city or large metro area in Texas, we are all in this together and can only be stronger if we are well organized as a state. It doesn't really matter if you are a sports department of a CVB, a salesperson who oversees the sports market, a stand-alone sports commission, or part of another type of civic organization... we have all been tremendously affected by the COVID-19 outbreak and need ideas or best practice sharing of how to survive the challenging times and thrive when things get back to more normalcy. 


I am from Abilene a mid-size market and Janice represents a large destination. Together, we were recently on a call with the National Sports & Events Tourism Association (Sports ETA). I represent Texas small/mid-markets on the Sports ETA’s State Association Committee, and Janice was on as the Chair of Sports ETA. There are about 28 states that have statewide sports marketing initiatives and work together regularly to quickly mobilize when needed. We think it may be helpful to go over some of the things that were shared on the call and talk about what our competitor states are doing.


Please join us on Thursday, April 2, 2020, at 10:00 am by dialing 1-848-777-1212, PIN# 419-5713. Feel free to pass this message along to anyone that handles the sports market for your area. We need to stand together and hear from each other more than ever before.  


Thank you,
