Knoxville Selected as 2019 NASC Sports Symposium Host

CINCINNATI, OH—(Marketwired – October 11, 2017) – The city of Knoxville, TN, will be the host city for the 2019 NASC Sports Event Symposium, connecting leaders in the sports tourism industry with event rights holders, industry partners, and venue managers from around the country and across the world.

“Visit Knoxville Sports Commission is excited to welcome the 2019 NASC Symposium to Knoxville and we look forward to partnering with all of our teammates at PlayTN to show more than 1,000 sports tourism professionals an unforgettable event,” said Chad Culver, Senior Director, Visit Knoxville Sports Commission. “Hosting the Symposium is an incredible honor for Knoxville as well as the entire state of Tennessee.”

“We are excited to bring our Symposium to the heart of Tennessee,” said Al Kidd, NASC President and CEO. “We look forward to bringing the leaders in sports events and tourism to such a vibrant sports city as Knoxville.”

The Symposium features dozens of authentic education sessions, countless networking opportunities, and business development appointments in the NASC Sports Marketplace, all to help our members produce measurable ROI for their organization, elevate their sports events, and improve the quality of life in their destinations.
