Sports ETA Annual Report FY '22

ANNUAL REPORT 2021 - 2022 Fiscal Year


2022 was an important inflection point in the history of our association. We came off two years of COVID affecting our ability to host live events. As an event-driven revenue organization, a two-year hiatus puts significant pressure on sustainability.

In 2022 we doubled up on staging and expanding our events. The result of staging six events, including two symposiums in 2022, brought our financial resources into the black, providing a portion of the resources necessary to focus beyond 2022 to add more value to our members.

The long overdue membership dues adjustment provided the remaining resources to fuel our future. These increases coupled with the added events were what was needed for the association. A special thank you to all members who supported these initiatives during this challenging period.

2022 unveiled our best-ever State of the Industry report. We were able to measure the 2020 and 2021 impact on the sports events and tourism industry, as well as benchmark against our 2019 study. The resulting data provided impetus to the national awareness of the importance of sports events as the catalyst to the restart of tourism across the US. We are seeing 2022 eclipsing the 2019 performance standards.

I am proud of the extended partnerships we have added. The new research white papers and reports slated for 2023 provide greater value to each and every member. It leaves us excited about our foundation to continue making a difference to you and to the greater good of our industry.

Alan R. Kidd



Michael Price, Chair 2020-2022, Sports ETA

To say our careers are interesting, fun, unique and any one of a thousand great adjectives may be an incredible understatement. Every day we embark upon a new adventure, not always sure who we may meet, what unforgettable memories our events may create, and often not even aware of the full impact our events have within the region. Everyone I cross paths with and explain what I do often remark, “how cool!” And you know what? They are so very right.

As my time serving as your board chair has ended, I find myself thinking the same, how cool has this been?

Serving our association and this incredible membership is an honor that I will carry with me for the rest of my career. But I must admit, I feel a bit guilty. Guilty that, as it always has, this association continues to give more to me than I can ever give back. I believe that is exactly how our association is supposed to function, the collective is better than the individual. Together over the last 25+ years, we’ve fostered one of the most visible, impactful, and resilient industries in tourism. And while we are all competitive and competitors, we’ve done this by being collaborative and gracious with one another. Two qualities that seem to be increasingly rare these days.

Even as our industry and world fell apart during the early days of the pandemic, our members asked how they could help each other get through this and worked with the association to share all resources available to help ALL continue to move forward. In the face of our industry’s darkest hour, we never lost our desire to be collaborative and gracious. It’s not a surprise, that’s the bedrock of who and what this association and its members are. Like the athletes we serve, our industry is about teamwork. And I hope that never changes. I’m thankful for the opportunity to serve our membership and support the association that’s given so much to each of us.

Yours in sport,

July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022 Annual Report

Since 2018 and each year thereafter, staff prepares an annual value creation document that summarizes member programs and services embarked upon during the fiscal year. It has been our goal to prepare an annual report to demonstrate our stewardship of member’s investment into the Sports Events and Tourism industry. The overview of FY2022 will include operational advancement against our 2020 Vision and the tactical programs that took place over the year. Also included is additional financial information that provides context to the FY22 performance. Thank you for your continued support of staff and our work on your behalf.


Following the established 2020 Vision, our vision, mission, four (4) pillars, and added innovation in key areas of our business assist us in determining the amount of annualized value we create for membership and tracks progress on multi-year larger longitudinal initiatives. By no means is this meant to be the entire body of our work, rather we highlight some of our best from a mighty team of staff and subject matter expert independent contractors.

It is important to travel back three years for a quick snapshot of a well-thought-out operating and survival plan added to a little good fortune to best understand how we put the association into the strong position we currently hold.

As a precursor to COVID, and not knowing it was coming, we made a strategic decision to “staff” high-end independent contractors in many of our operating positions. This enabled us to deliver significant products and services from subject matter experts - at a cost we could afford. The bet was due to the knowledge and experience of our team, we would elevate our content, work, and solutions, which was accomplished. Secondly, prior to COVID, we made a strategic shift to digital program delivery and aggressively pursued online content aggregation. This aggregation built a robust “info center” that was easily expanded once COVID closed our industry down. The virtual content aggregation and ramped-up content produced a new level of revenue for the organization with the first ever virtual business development event and our online educational delivery platform. As a result, our membership and event-based association was able to survive over the two years we could not deliver our main revenue through events. The good fortune came in applying for and receiving two years’ worth of CARES support from the government program. Adding to that

income the excellent results we had with our two virtual SportsBiz XChange events and a number of members taking our online education courses helped bode well for the association. As a result, we only had small losses in 2020 and 2021.

Now moving through 2022, we honored our hosting agreements with Birmingham, AL and Fort Worth, TX by holding two Symposiums in the same fiscal year. We also held two Women’s and Facilities Summits in 2022. The shift to hold the two Symposiums resulted in resetting the 4S Summit, the industry’s premier Sports Events and Tourism Educational and Professional Development Forum to October 2022, which will take place during FY23. The final results of the last three years of solid cash management and our FY22 with multi-Symposiums in one fiscal year have put the association on solid financial footing. We erased the two loss years and showed enough profit in FY22 to flip the balance sheet to positive. The financial statements are included further in this report.

FY22 was not only a year of rebound with our financial position, we significantly added high-level content and industry partners that positioned us primed to create new and innovative membership value. Let’s take a journey through FY22 in the eyes of our 4 Pillars and our innovation.



We launched our Sports Tourism Learning Institute (STLI), offering online self-paced and self-guided education certificates. In 2020, eight new courses were added with subjects from Innovation to Sports Facility Management, Crisis Communications, and Winning eSports Strategy.

of these courses

Our first pillar is Education. The Sports Tourism Learning Institute completed a number of enhancements to our education pillar during FY2022. We developed a number of improvements to our Learning Management System to continue to make the user experience more simplified. We expanded the features centered on tracking individual performance and added more detailed course descriptions. We identified four new courses to add and have completed the content outline to hit the ground running in FY23. Here are some highlights from FY22.

• First Graduating STS Class (35 individuals)

• Refined STLI user experience

• Added a “special” STS congratulatory session at the 2022 Symposium with our keynote speaker

Andrew Davis

• Produced high-level subject matter expert education at Women’s Summit and Chief Executive Summit

• Added an expanded education program to the Facilities Summit

• Continue quality improvement of in-person content Produced Community driven education during the Symposium to appeal to specific interests

• Produced two (2) successful STS courses with Game On Nation (1 virtual, 1 in-person)

were created by industry experts from the following companies: • 4FRONT • Kansas City Sports Commission • Destinations International • P7 Content • Game Changer Consulting • Tourism Economics • Game Day


In 2020, Sports ETA quickly moved to make sure member communications increased to support the wave of information on COVID-19, event postponements and new health and safety protocols.

Each week, Sports ETA shared Weekly Reading References to keep members up-to-date on the latest COVID-19 challenges and accomplishments within the industry. Each month, Al Kidd shared his “Kidd’s Komments” with industry insights and thought leadership. Each quarter, the Sports ETA Playbook highlighted YOU, our members and industry achievements.

Additionally, Sports ETA researched and published a number of whitepapers under the leadership of Jennifer Stoll, PhD, STS with timely discussions on industry matters such as Tourism Impact Research, Diversity, Equality and Inclusion as well as Legalized Sports Gambling, among others.

Our advocacy work often goes unseen by the general membership as much of it is done for a specific purpose or cause. Advocacy for Sports ETA focuses on three areas:

1. National tourism relevancy and support for the industry at large

2. Support local and national youth sports initiatives to fuel participation

3. Stand by with our Rapid Response team to support our members

Sports ETA was an active industry participant in most of the national tourism work performed by US Travel on behalf of the entire tourism industry. Letters of support for many of their travel initiatives were sent off by our association.

Our Rapid Response team had a number of assignments for specific states of destinations to support key initiatives in their regions.

Our youth sports initiatives will continue to develop as time goes on. We had members attend the Aspen Institute on Youth Sports for us to keep our presence in front of one of the leading youth sports research and national advocacy organizations. We have begun early-stage conversations with leading organizations to consider new and innovative programming. We are excited to share how this develops in FY23.


Here is a list of some of our advocacy work in FY2022:


• Wrote numerous letters in support of US Travel tourism initiatives

• Supported Orlando Annual Report for the value of sports tourism

• Signed Equity Diversity and Inclusion pledge for Destinations International

• Advocated for destination support to add pickleball to citywide offerings

Professional partnerships play a key role in our advocacy
value creation for our members. The enhanced value provided by our partners enriches the programs and services we would like to provide to our members. The primary focus of sourcing and adding partners to our portfolio of teammates centers on three areas: 1. Provide subject matter expert depth and quality of content 2. Provide additional revenue for the association 3. Provide a broader scope of programs and services from leading sources of value - that cannot be supported by Sports ETA resources 16

Here are some of the areas of partnership progress that took place in FY2022:

The partnership between Destinations International and Sports ETA is multi-faceted. I am most excited about our collaboration to study, track and communicate the impact of the Sports Events Tourism industry using our Events Impact Calculator, the industry standard for all DMOs.

– Don Welsh, President & CEO of Destinations International

“We have always held the belief that a strong industry association will lead to a stronger industry overall. It’s one of many reasons we have been proud to support Sports ETA from the beginning.

Northstar Meetings Group

Financially and operationally, 2022 proved to be the most important year in the history of the association. Sports ETA was coming off two years of COVID operating restrictions with no revenue being derived from in-person events. Those two years built a negative equity of over $250,000 that we needed to significantly reduce as well as show we had the right plan to fully recover in 2023.

How we would perform in 2022 was going to be the bellwether for the future of the association.

The team and membership responded very well in support of our work and first live events. So much so that what could have been a two-year recovery process after our two year COVID loss, ended up being solved in one season of work. It was tough on staff to produce 8 live events during FY22 but the net result was well worth it. Not only did we eliminate previous debt, we ended the year making over $343,000 while turning the Statement of Financial Position (not-for-profit lingo for Balance Sheet) to a positive $65,000.

A solid 2022 gave us the resources to further invest in a number of important operational items in 2023. They include new and improved content for events, additional new education courses for our online catalog, additional investment in research and data collection, efficiency and content enhancements to our website, major improvements to the accounting and financial systems eliminating data entry redundancies, and integration of all reporting systems

into a cohesive full-service financial management capability. A major emphasis for FY22 was to continue to invest time and capital implementing improved member experience at our events.

Our attendance for all events in FY22 were below averages from 2018 and 2019, but were enough to support the previously mentioned growth. The good news of the attendance is that it gives us room to improve registrations to future events.

Membership renewals were strong with the advent of our new dues structure.

It is our goal to further support member communities to grow in size and engagement and that we look to invest in specific programming that is important to those communities. As 2023 unfolds and we hit our financial landmarks, we will review community programming with the community chairs in the second half of 2023.
