Your business is the business of sports – all that goes on behind the scenes to make the athletes look good and the spectators proud. And as a sports event planning professional, you need to keep your knowledge up-to-date and your skills sharp. This issue of Sports Destination Management includes some of the best information in the business, written by the best in the business, all ready to give you the benefit of their experience. The articles on insurance, stay-to-play, lodging and medical planning can help you get inside information into those essential issues.  Your athletes and spectators may not know you’ve put in the hours there – but you certainly will. You can also learn about the best facilities – and the best tips – for hosting can’t-miss golf, baseball and aquatics events. The U.S. has a selection of great new facilities, as well as some favorites that have undergone renovations to be ready for the competition season. You’ll also find out about the best places to host a sport if you’re heading out to the mountains. (Hint: It’s not just snow sports and mountain biking – although those are great too). What else? There are updates from AAU and from US Quidditch. Altogether, it’s a great issue, and you won’t want to miss it. Click here to start now.
