First Sport Tourism report to be launched at WTM

First Sport Tourism report to be launched at WTM

A delegation of top travel and sports officials gathered in London for the announcement of a new annual report that will examine the dynamics and potential of the $600 billion Sport Tourism industry.

The much anticipated 2010 Sport Tourism Report will deliver a 360-degree overview of the travel industry’s fastest growing sector, highlighting the current market leaders and presenting a road map for lucrative opportunities within the Sport Tourism industry.

The ground-breaking publication will be launched at this year’s World Travel Market in London on 8 November and will have a global reach to an estimated 200,000 travel and tourism professionals – including distribution within the World Travel Market Official Daily Newspaper.

Leading analysts predict that Sport Tourism will post record profits and contribute an astonishing 14 percent of overall travel and tourism receipts by the end of 2010. At a time when some traditional tourism trends are in decline, sport tourism continues to flourish and is set to grow exponentially in the next decade.

The report follows the huge success of the inaugural World Sport Destination Expo – the first dedicated Sport Tourism exhibition and business forum which took place alongside the final week of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

From Abu Dhabi to Rio de Janeiro the world’s leading destinations engaged in five days of top level debate, interaction and the tabling of lucrative future business deals.

Over 5,000 Sport Tourism buyers, influencers and sporting media gathered at the launch event.  Host tenders are currently being assessed and the location and timing of WSDE 2011 – the much anticipated 2nd edition of WSDE – are set to be released soon.
