How We Can Help

 

The West Michigan Sports Commission offers a wide variety of services that can assist you at different phases of the event planning process. We can help you with:

 

Presentation Support

 

We provide insight, advice, promotional materials, targeted data and more to help you build winning presentations for boards and governing bodies, members and athletes, and potential sponsors.

 

Destination Services

 

We collaborate with the Grand Response™ team of the Grand Rapids/Kent County Convention & Visitors Bureau and other area bureaus to make sure your event is successful. We bend over backwards to help you plan, coordinate and publicize your event, and to make your athletes, officials and fans enjoy their time in West Michigan – both on and off the field.

 

Venue Selection

 

West Michigan is jam-packed with unique facilities, fields, parks and playgrounds. We’ll help you locate and secure just the right one for your specific needs.

 

Sponsorship Procurement

 

With our vast network of contacts in the local sports and business communities, we can help you identify potential sponsors for your event – and then make the connections that can lead to mutually beneficial relationships.

 

Volunteer Recruitment

 

We maintain a database of committed volunteers eager to assist with sports events, and we reach out to the community for additional support of individual events.

 

PR Assistance

 

We’ll help you spread the word. We can provide public relations assistance for your event – identifying media opportunities, offering insight and advice on story approaches, connecting you with the proper media personalities, coordinating press conferences and media presentations, and more.

 

Please contact us to get the ball rolling.
