2017 NASC Sports Event Symposium

Sports Marketplace

The NASC Sports Marketplace is the longest-running reverse trade show in the sport tourism industry, designed for destinations, vendors, and event owners to cultivate meaningful relationships and produce measurable ROI for their organizations. Educational opportunities and other activities are not scheduled during Marketplace hours, so exhibitors have the undivided attention of attendees.

Request appointments now.

How are appointments scheduled?

First registered attendees for all NASC member destinations, event owners, and vendor exhibitors may request, accept, or decline appointments in the NASC Sports Marketplace*.  Please review the Important Dates below for details on the different steps in the process.  Be sure to prioritize the order in which requests will be attempted to be scheduled, and modify availability for appointments. Login to request appointments. Once logged in, go to My Account and select the tab labeled "Marketplace Appointments."

Individual Appointments
Think "New Relationship NASC Marketplace"
Each one-on-one, 10-minute appointment offers destinations and vendor exhibitors the opportunity to share information about their community and/or products/services.

Event Overview Appointments
Think "Learning & Listening Marketplace"
Event overview appointments offer event owners the opportunity to share information about their organization and what it takes to host an event with destinations whom they have not done business.

These appointments will take place at tables in the Sports Marketplace, not at the event owner's booth.  Up to five (5) destinations and/or vendor exhibitors will be seated at a table with one event owner.  The event owner will provide information on what it takes to host their event and may allow a minute or two at the end of the 1o-minute appointment for questions.

*First Attendee Registration must be paid in full to access the appointment request portal.
