Fuel Sports, a division of Meeting Encore Ltd. is officially launched!

Port Hope, ON – Jenn Glynn and Joe Nishi are pleased to announce the launch of Fuel Sports, a division of Meeting Encore Ltd that will provide sourcing and consultative services to the Sports Tourism Market. The goal of Fuel Sports is to help clients drive their events success.

“With the expanding skill set on the Meeting Encore team, it was a natural progression to create a division that targets the sports market. Some intermediaries do not have the expertise to assist in writing RFP’s or to help put together bid books for sport event organizers. Fuel Sports has experts to partner with the right destinations, secure hotels and venues to win the business.” says Jenn.

“We have been successfully partnering with many sports clients for years. We wanted to continue to expand our work in this important market in our industry. The Canadian Sports Tourism Industry contributes significant economic impact to a destination when hosting an event and can help bring business to tertiary cities.”, states Frank Di Rocco.

“Our clients are the experts in their field, why not engage experts in the sourcing field. Companies like Fuel Sports source and negotiate thousands of hotel and venue contracts every year. Understanding the finer points of contracts and ensuring that our clients have fair and reasonable terms is what we excel at.” states Joe.

We are working under the hood of our website, but bookmark  www.fuelsports.ca and stayed tuned for more details on our game plan on how we can help! In the meantime to get the RFP ball rolling, do not hesitate to email us at  info@fuelsports.ca.

The Fuel Sports Team is excited about the launch of this new division and continuing to build relationships in the sports market!
