RSC SpringSummer 2023

 

EVENT ATTRACTION/PLANNING/CO-PRODUCTION

 

The Riverside Sports Commission generates leads, organizes site visits, coordinates venue/site inspections, and leads the request for proposal/bid process to attract sports competitions to Riverside.

The Riverside Sports Commission plays an important role in helping sports organizations with their pre-event planning and event co-production.  In this way, the RSC acts as an extension of the sports organization itself.

 

Services may include:

 

  • Securing competition venues and acting as the liaison/mediator between event organizers and venue owners/managers
  • Obtaining estimates for services and equipment, contracting with suppliers, coordinating timelines, and overseeing the installation and removal of equipment
  • Planning and managing event transportation and parking
  • Obtaining competitive rates and room blocks at Riverside hotels
  • Designing hotel information sheets to post online or to distribute to event participants
  • Assisting with referrals and/or helping coordinate supplemental events, such as sports banquets, team dinners and award ceremonies
  • Providing VIP welcome amenities for coaches/officials and welcome bags for athletes
  • Providing discount coupons and fundraising opportunities in partnership with local restaurants
  • Securing public officials to officially “kick-off” events and welcome visitors
