The Sport Hosting Vancouver partnership works to unite all interests of sport hosting in Vancouver, providing a responsive and streamlined approach to attracting major events and making them successful on every level.
It's important to get decision-makers on board with your bid. To convince the decision-makers in your organization to agree to meet in Vancouver, we'll help you with a formal bid process including bid collateral, presentations and flight assistance to present the bid.
Accommodations are a key part of the bid process. Our team will work to find and secure the right accommodations, checking hotel and venue availability, and distributing your meeting specifications to reliable suppliers around the city.
Vancouver has world-class sporting venues which range in size to suit your needs. Depending on the scope of your event or competition, we can work directly with the local sport venues to ensure a seamless integration of your bid specifications.
The best way to choose a venue is to experience the venue! Our team will assist with site visit itineraries for key stakeholders to help them decide on your successful bid.
Written letters of support and endorsement is another area where our team can help support your team. Experience in production of support documents can be a valuable asset to your bid, and we can help with that.
Looking for extra funding in hosting your event? We've got the connections and expertise to get you there.
There is a lot to be covered when hosting a major sporting event, and VSH has done it all before! Our team can connect you with the people and resources within the City of Vancouver to ensure your checklist of permits, mapping, Civic approvals and city services can confidently get crossesd off.
What's an event without dedicated fans? It's one thing to host an event, but attracting visitors to your event is just as important. The team at VSH has developed a marketing toolbox to communicate to your sport audiences with digital and print templates, marketing materials and promotional tactics.
One of the most efficient ways to share important information, communicate with audiences and build excitement about your event is through your event's website. We've got website templates pre-designed for your event to make this part of the hosting process easy.
Available for your planning and hosting package are Vancouver Guides and Maps–an easy but effective way for your visitors to show themselves themselves around our incredible city.
Through our partners in the airline industry, Vancouver Sport Hosting can guarantee you and your stakeholders get the lowest airfare offered. Now there's no reason not to visit!
There's nothing like a site visit to boost your confidence about the planning process. Our team can help with site visit itineraries for key stakeholders to help them decide on your successful bid.
We have an incredible line-up of smart, innovative, helpful and dedicated suppliers who can help with your event. Why worry about making connections, when we've done it all for you!
We appreciate that your event has the potential to bring direct or indirect economic, social, health, and community development benefits to Vancouver. That's why we created The Vancouver Sport Hosting grant. More information here.
Sometimes, measuring the success of your event is just as valuable as the event itself. Our team has the knowledge and resources to help you assess your project with surveys and economic assessment tools.
