Selrahco Events: sports tourism?
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.
- How to turn your natural and man-made sports facilities into top money-earning investments.
- How to establish your city or province into the ultimate sports host city.
- How to successfully bid to host sports events.
Indulge in a one-day program and understand the objectives of this forum:
- Evaluate sporting and tourist facilities of each destination, particularly the capacities and standard of its stadiums, hotels, and transportation.
- Establish the sports appropriate for each destination and viability.
- Establish local government (LGU) and national sports association (NSA) support.
- Provide inputs on sports event organizing.
- Provide inputs on sports event marketing and sponsorship.
- Provide inputs on media exposure on destination marketing.
