All sports event organizers recognize there are many factors to consider when creating or relocating an event. In the year 2018, the Charleston area is projected to reach an all-time high in number of sports travel events – over 360 events – with each one requiring over night travel for participants and spectators. Although there are market entry opportunities in the area, your event dates should be a priority consideration. The availability, pricing and convenience of hotel accommodations will greatly vary depending on the time frame and location of your event. The Charleston Area Sports Commission can assist you by reaching out to some 90 sports-friendly hotels, representing 16,000+ rooms, for all your event needs.
