Happy New Year, sports world!
Even though I repeatedly am typing 2021…and have even typed 2020 on some word documents…we are finally on our way into 2022!
Each year, I wonder what the sports industry will look like. This year, I wonder how recovery efforts post 2020 and that word will go, and I also wonder what numbers will look like this year.
Last year, we saw a lot of record-breaking tournaments occur. It seemed every other Monday we were getting back into the office only to find another press release stating a broken record in our inboxes. This year, I am wondering if the same trend will occur, or if another trend—maybe a record-breaking number of tournaments—will emerge as the victor.
Currently in the office, we have been taking predictions when it comes to the industry this year, especially ahead of the trends report from each company being released.
So far, we have predictions on the largest event this year, the markets to watch, and how many of you we will be seeing at this year’s S.P.O.R.T.S. Conference in Savannah, Ga. Please note to make our last prediction come true, we need a high number of you to join us. Keep a look out for registration in the near future!
I know I can’t wait to see what this year holds for our industry. If it is anything like it was last year, I know it will be great!
