This issue of SDM covers a lot of ground. Our sports are as varied as combat, lacrosse and running, and the cities we are highlighting represent an excellent cross-section of the U.S. If you’re looking for a new destination to refresh your event, you can’t do better than the pages of this issue. Our Regional Focus covers the Southeast and our sports insight columns on bass fishing and competitive cheerleading and dance, as viewed through the lenses of FLW and USA Cheer, also offer some excellent views. Add to this our industry experts, who are weighing in on the essential topics of risk management, hotel negotiations and engaging volunteers, as well as marketing and advertising sports events, and you really do have an issue that is packed with substantive content and excellent insights. From coast to coast and border to border, and throughout the entire landscape of sports and experiences available, there’s always something new to try and fun to learn. This issue offers a view of that.
