Where these businesses offer travel services to both fans and players, agencies specializing in active sport tourism provide travel and tourism services for athletes and those involved in the planning and execution of sporting events. Further, sport event tourism organizations focus on getting sports enthusiasts to specific events, like these most popular ones included in National Geographic’s list of the world’s Top 10 most popular:
- France’s Le Mans
- The Olympics
- The Soccer World Cup
- The Super Bowl
- The NBA Finals
- The Masters
The sporting + event hospitality category represents the agencies, host cities, sporting event planners, etc. who are tasked with event promotion, filling stadiums, arenas, courts, and greens, and — really — getting bodies into the seats! Experiential travel experts and “Celebrity Sport Tourism Agencies” provide travel opportunities for people desiring the chance to meet a celebrity athlete or sports figure, while “Nostalgia Sport Tourism Agencies” focus on trips that take sporting fans to see popular, historical or significant sport locations — like famous arenas or sporting Halls of Fame.
And our team at Stir Marketing works with them all, providing world-class digital marketing and advertising services that help them to improve their online presence, increase their social fan following, drive strategically targeted website traffic, build brand buzz, increase event awareness and attendance, sell tickets and tours, and much more.
Why Stir Marketing?
Sports Tourism businesses do well to work with an experienced digital marketing team likes ours because “sports tourism” represents a small niche inside a heavily saturated, exceedingly competitive industry. “Winning” online when there are so many players in the field is hard work.
Further, sports tourism digital marketing combines a need for the urgency of event marketing with the intricacies of travel and tourism marketing — and this can be tricky: How do you know what online brand and following building tactics will work best? And how do you measure ROI to ensure your marketing budget is spent wisely?
That’s where we come in.
Our proven “Plan, Build, Launch + Grow” process ensures that each Stir Marketing campaign is well-planned, built on a solid foundation, optimized for maximum growth and regularly analyzed so that early successes can be grabbed hold of and expanded upon.
