SPORT EVENTS EXCHANGE

[ AKA SPEED DATING ]

ARE YOU READY TO FIND A LIFELONG EVENT PARTNER?

Sport Events Exchange is an in-person or virtual business-to-business marketplace activity that connects sport events rights holders (ERHs) and destinations who are members of Sport Tourism Canada (DMO members).

The Exchange allows destinations and events rights holders to briefly meet and explore hosting opportunities in a fast, efficient and fun 1st date type of environment. Our dating gurus help daters prep for the dates to ensure both parties make a good first impression.  We guide Exchange participants on how to match-up with potential event partners that are a good fit.
