WSDE Sport Tourism Expo and iSC announce Social Media Partnership

Sports business portal iSportconnect.com has agreed a social media partnership with WSDE Sport Tourism Expo which will be held in Bangkok, Thailand - Asia’s Sport Tourism Gateway - from 27-29 September 2011.

Bringing together sports professionals, iSportconnect.com provides a community for sport professionals, where all the essential components of the industry can be found and utilised.

It does so by combining social networking, the latest sports business news as well as events and jobs listings.

The platform will act as a virtual meeting room, so that Expo participants can interact before, during and after the event in a secured way, thanks to the site’s Strict Door Policy.

WSDE’s own community group will feature event-related news updates, interviews and multimedia enabled features. The event page will facilitate a great level of communication for both Event participants and enthusiasts.

WSDE is the only global exhibition and business forum dedicated to showcasing the booming $600 billion a year Sport Tourism market - the most rapidly growing sector in travel and tourism.

Now in its 2nd year, WSDE 2011 will take place in Bangkok, Thailand - Asia’s Sport Tourism Gateway - from 27-29 September 2011.

The leading national, regional and city tourist boards, top end hotels and resorts offering sporting facilities and transportation providers will meet face to face with the top international buyers, industry influencers, and tour operators and agents over 3 dynamic business days.

With the exponential growth of Participation Vacations (holidays with an activity attached– i.e. golf, tennis, alpine) triggered by an increasingly “sportified” society, WSDE Research has revealed that the travel industry’s fastest growing sector will post record profits and contribute an astonishing 14 percent of overall travel and tourism receipts by the end of the year.

At a time when most traditional tourism trends are in decline, Sport Tourism continues to flourish and is set to grow exponentially in the next decade.

WSDE presents a much needed annual opportunity for the Sport Tourism industry to come together, not only to conduct lucrative future business deals and source new contacts and markets, but also to gain invaluable insights from the advanced knowledge of market leaders. WSDE is a vital event for those wishing to be part of the growth of the industry’s future.
