Sport Events Exchange


Two groups take part in the Exchange:

  1. Destinations who are ‘active’ members of the CSTA
  2. Sport organizations who own the rights to events open for bid (events rights holders)

This informal opportunity to connect with Exchange participants is open to accommodations providers who are members of the CSTA and companies/organizations who are event sponsors of Sport Events Congress and/or the PRESTIGE Awards.  Pre-Game will take place immediately before Sport Events Exchange for a limited window of time.  Events Rights Holders will be seated at their tables and available to meet, but there will be no scheduled appointments.  Eligible participants for Pre-Game are free to circulate throughout the room during the allotted time.
