Your $600 Billion Sport Tourism Opportunity…

Taking place alongside the International Sport Tourism Conference is the only global B-2-B exhibition 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 Sport Tourism Expo 2011 will take place in Bangkok, Thailand - Asia’s Sport Tourism Gateway - from 27th – 29th September 2011.

National, Regional or City Tourist Boards with a Sport Tourism portfolio and hotels and resorts offering sporting facilities are urged to participate in this must attend industry gathering. With the exponential growth of Activity or “Participation Vacations” (holidays with an activity attached– i.e. golf, tennis, adventure, diving, 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% 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.
