What is sports tourism?
How can it boost tourist arrivals and improve athletes’ performance in your area?
The Sports Tourism Forum was established in 2005 to create awareness of the benefits of sports in tourism. It initially served the Southeast Asian Games host cities of Cebu, Bacolod and Subic in their preparation for the successful hosting and marketing of the Games in 2005.
Later, it was expanded to Davao City, Puerto Princesa (Palawan) and Laoag (Ilocos Norte). It is now the thrust of the Department of Tourism under the office Undersecretary Cynthia
Carrion (Sports & Wellness) to hold more seminars and workshops on this subject throughout the country.
