Bryan College Station, Texas: A Reputation for Cooperation
When the convention and visitors bureau for Bryan College Station changed its name to Bryan College Station Sports + Events, it was not because of changes in its role; in fact, the organization already had a history of attracting and marketing successful sports events. Rather, it was a reflection of the area's ever-growing role as a sports destination. The dual cities of Bryan and College Station, with a collective population of about 200,000 residents, plus the student body at Texas A&M, host a wide range of diverse events, from soccer to equestrian, from basketball to softball and from lacrosse to football.
