AAACCVB hosts S.P.O.R.T.S conference

| September 30, 2014 | 1 Comment

If they didn’t know it before, they know it now. More than 260 sporting events planners, industry suppliers and DMO’s learned firsthand why Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay is the winning choice for sporting events during the S.P.O.R.T.S. The Relationship Conference at U.S. Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium earlier this month. Hosted by the AAACCVB, the September 8-11 event showcased the destination as a crowd pleaser on and off the field.

In addition to meeting with events rights holders in pre-scheduled appointments, the AAACCVB sales team embraced its home court advantage with a pre-conference schedule that included a U.S. Naval Academy tour, golfing at Renditions Golf Course, a Historic Annapolis Food Tour and an Annapolis Running Tour.

Highlights of the conference included a keynote address by Annapolis’ own ESPN sailing commentator and America’s Cup Hall of Famer Gary Jobson and a welcome reception hosted by the AAACCVB and Maryland Sports at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on September 9.

With lunch overlooking the field, attendees could even go down and throw a ball around!

Annapolis has become a more prominent sports destination with big events like the Military Bowl and the Drum Corps Associates’ World Championship that was held in Annapolis last year!
