Summer is the season of growth and our partners are sprouting like seeds after a July rainstorm. With much excitement, we would like to announce our most recent partnership with the Gulfport Sportsplex.
On the beautiful Gulf Coast of Mississippi lies the Gulfport Sportsplex. A massive sports complex that sees 50-60 events every year ranging from recreational tournaments to national level championships. Some events include the Youth Baseball Nationals, Gulf Coast World Series,, and the National Fastpitch Alliance National Championship. Their park is perfect for events of any size as they have: 15 baseball and softball fields (6 of which are synthetic turf), 6 full-size soccer fields which are multi-use for lacrosse, 4 batting cages, and multiple concession stands. All nestled on a 250-acre plot of land. This partnership was made with the approval of the city council, a decision that was passed unanimously as they saw its value and potential.
With thousands of participants playing at the Sportsplex every year, data accuracy was something highly valued but lacking in their workflow. By partnering with EventConnect they now have crystal clear data on exactly how many teams and participants are coming through their gates every season. This is a huge factor for them as projections and business decisions need to be made based upon accurate figures.
The City of Gulfport will also be using our group tournament housing system to accommodate all traveling teams. This will allow their organizations to take advantage of low rates and the option to block groups of rooms for future reservations.
- Instant access to exclusive hotel inventory
- All-in-one digital solution for easy event management
- Accurate data reporting available in real-time
As Gulfport grows at an amazing pace we can’t wait to see how our partnership with them will support their ongoing goals to become the home for Mississippi’s competitive sports.
