Around 80 sports events planners and Minnesota destinations gathered on May 30 at the National Sports Center to share ways to increase awareness of Minnesota as a sports destination. Other upcoming events include a shared presence at TEAMS in November & NASC in spring.
Minnesota Sports is a collaborative effort of convention and visitor bureaus, community sports commissions and Explore Minnesota Tourism. The goal of Minnesota Sports is to generate more awareness of Minnesota as a sports event destination, resulting in more regional, national and international sports events held in Minnesota. Small and mid-sized amateur tournaments and other sporting events can generate between $1 million to $3 million in visitor spending to the host city. Large events can have a multi-million dollar economic impact. For more information, visit Minnesotasports.org.
