Destination Marketing & Event Host Communication

Important sports events are major communication opportunities for a host city. Images and brands can be reinforced or repositioned through events, and consistency with city initiatives is paramount.

Based on years of working experience with cities throughout North America, we have the expertise and the necessary reach to plan, activate, and execute such coordinated efforts. We support cities in the transformation from bidding to hosting, and we help cities enhance their management capabilities.
