Myrtle Beach Sports Center Announces Signing of 17 Occasion Contracts New Facility, Scheduled To Open in March 2015, Has Nearly Sold Out Its Very first Six Months | Sports Management Pohl W | Scoop.it


Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) November 12, 2014

Myrtle Beach, SC is the third largest tourism location in America behind Orlando and Las Vegas – its longtime focus on sports is 1 cause the beach town has grow to be so well-liked. John MacDonald, Common Manager of the new Myrtle Beach Sports Center positioned in Myrtle Beach, has announced the signing of 17 event contracts for the new facility, which is scheduled to open in March 2015. “Response has been phenomenal,” says MacDonald. “There are only two weekends still open for the center’s initial six months of operation—Easter and Memorial day.”

&#13

Myrtle Beach Sports Center will incorporate one hundred,000 square feet of year-round tournament and events space. The center delivers eight high school basketball courts or 16 volleyball courts with full-length retractable curtains. The courts are also lined so as to be configurable as four collegiate/specialist basketball courts.

&#13

“Basketball and volleyball are not the only choices, of course,” says MacDonald. “The center has 70,000 square feet of totally free-span space it is developed to host mat sports, table tennis, pickle ball, trade shows, and numerous other sorts of events.”

&#13

When not at the Sports Center, MacDonald notes, athletes and their households will have a host of region activities to select from. These incorporate the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, named the nation’s number-three boardwalk by National Geographic Household Kingdom Amusement Park, considered the fifth-ideal amusement park in the nation the Huntington Beach and Myrtle Beach State Parks a wide selection of musical entertainment, which includes the Carolina Opry and comprehensive, family-friendly purchasing.1

&#13

“This new facility and its locale in one particular of the significant tourist destinations in the U.S.,” says MacDonald, “makes it a have to quit for any occasion owner that wants to give athletic teams with the ultimate in customer service, facilities, value, and guest experience—in and outside of the competition venue.”

&#13

Amongst the groups that will be moving their events next year to the Myrtle Beach Sports Center sits the National Travel Basketball Association (NTBA). Says NTBA President John Whitley, “Having the new Myrtle Beach Sports Center permits NTBA to now bring its 1st-class tournaments to a first-class facility. We will be hosting our State and National Championships at the MBSC, and becoming capable to have the games below 1 roof is merely a win-win for all involved, but especially the spectators.”

&#13

A essential aspect in the accomplishment of the new Myrtle Beach Sports Center, and of related facilities nationwide, is an explosion of interest in youth and travel sports. “Youth sports tourism wasn’t even a category 4 years ago,” says Dave Hollander, a professor at New York University’s Tisch Center for Hospitality, Tourism, and Sports, “and now it’s the fastest-growing segment in travel. You have got millions of youngsters involved, parents spending thousands of dollars, and cities constructing facilities to host events. It is just massive.”

&#13

According to a recent USA Right now survey, at least 35 million youngsters between five and 18 currently play an organized sport every single year in the U.S. Of these, 21 million are involved in non-college youth sports. “I do not see this as trending downward,” says Hollander. “Check out the neighborhood youth sports Television channels in your neighborhood. They are continuing to grow. Cities and towns are seeing advantages as these trips turn into mini-vacations for households, so their incentive to be a player in this is also expanding.”2

&#13

Even though the opportunity is real and developing, Dev Pathik, Founder and CEO, Sports Facilities Advisory and Sports Facilities Management, cautions that becoming a player in youth sports demands accurate analysis and planning. Speaking of the Myrtle Beach Sports Center, he says, “The city engaged us to generate a detailed economic forecast and financial effect projections for [Myrtle Beach Sports Center] from the time the project was in its infancy, and then hired our management team, to oversee the pre-opening and day to day operations.”

&#13

This cautious and detailed strategy, notes Pathik, is crucial to the success of any new sports facility. “Even with a excellent location and a booming market,” he says, “you have to make particular that what you are doing is precisely calibrated to the marketplace. We recognize this simply because it is our enterprise.”

New facility in Myrtle Beach is more than just fun in the Sun!  It has proven to be a much needed recreation facility to accommodate sporting events.  The facility hasn't even opened yet and is already booked out for six months.  This has clearly shown the demand and need for more sports facilities.  This facility provides extensive versatility and the ability to run multiple events at one time.  It also seems to be bringing in international interests which could boost the economy even more from the high tourist attraction of being a prime place for people to vacation.

I learned that creating a facebook account or any kind of page on social media to promote your company can be very beneficial to your business. Everyone is on social media everyday and are constantly just searching around, one like by one person and suddenly all their friends can see it and the chain goes on. i learned that social media is used for many things by a company such as: Allowing your customers to check in and retrieve items,Announce new products, programs, announce special features and deals. Lastly and most importantly it allows people to chat about it and spread the word to other possible costumers. I choice this article because it gave me tips on how to advertise a business and what could be extremely beneficial even if it does not seem like it. Also i wanted to learn about what kind of things to put on the facebook page when you do create it. This imformation will be helpful because i now know more than one way of advertising and getting the name of my business outwards to costumers bringing in more money.

Article on facilitating membership at fitness clubs.

 

Brad Rebello's curator insight, October 8, 2014 10:27 PM

      The important thing I learned in this article is that it's essential to get a customer interested in your business. You want them to be a member of your facility as soon as they walk through the front door.  The first thing you should do is show them around. You don't want to waste any time making small talk because they will get uninterested and waste their time. Get right to business and be aggressive. Introducing them to one of the professionals or staff who work in that area is a good strategy to grab the customers attention. By providing a strong introduction including a tour, how they will use the facility, and answering questions,  you will have persuaded them to become a member of your business. I also learned that you should follow up with your customer if they have joined or decided not to. Here, you can ask them how they found about your business so you can set up more advertisements. On the other hand, you can find out why they didn't chose to be a member of your business. You can use their reason to improve your facility and what you offer.

           What I found interesting is that you should not ask for feedback on a numerical scale of 1-10.  Most people are not interested in this part and just want to look for thorough reviews. Getting this type of response can change your sales, program, and business for the better. Another thing I found interesting is that the most important person in the business is the front desk person. They should be knowledgeable and friendly in order to make as many sales as they can. They have to be willing to like people and help them out.

          I chose this article because it provides insight on how to attract and keep customers in your business. It provides the ethics of what you should do and what you should not do.  In a business, your success depends on your customer support and this article explains how you can achieve that in the quickest way possible. This will help in the sport management industry because it teaches me how to interact with others and how to improve your facility. Using these strategies of leadership, communication, and being there to support your customers, you will have put together a successful business.

Cameron Brochu's curator insight, October 14, 2014 5:05 PM

1. I learned different ways to get people to buy a membership to your sports facility. Important things like no negotiating and following up are very important. Making the member feel comfortable and have them return to your facility is important. 

 

2. I found It interesting that you shouldn't give future members a tour because most costumers feels like it waste time. I also found it interesting that negotiating is not ht e right thing to do. A customer makes his or her decision fast and the sports facility manger needs to do the same. 

 

3. I selected this article because one day I would like to own or work in a sports facility and organize different leagues and games. I picked this article to I've me an insight on how to sell memberships to customers and the different strategies I can use. 

 

4. This information will help me in the sports industry because it gives me helpful tips and approaches to use when trying to sell something to a customer without feeling like you are being too pushy and annoying.
