Goals

Create a series of meetings with top leadership/principals of sports teams, major events and conventions to discuss the business of sports and create a strategic plan:

·         Catalog shortage of multipurpose sports facilities

·         Inventory needed resources

·         Host economic impact of sports

 

Work with local partner organizations including the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, Orange Bowl Committee and The Beacon Council to solicit new amateur and youth sports events throughout Miami-Dade County while enhancing the region as an international sports tourism destination:

·         Establish ‘where we are now’

·         Pitch three new events that current facilities can accommodate

 

Produce the 2016 Sports Hall of Champions induction ceremony to highlight great sports moments and individuals with a distinct South Florida connection in order to advance the greater goal of establishing a permanent home for the South Florida Sports Hall of Fame as well as a Great Moments in Miami Sports project at Miami International Airport.

 

Feature presentations at quarterly committee meetings including exploring ideas for South Florida Sports Hall of Fame, marketing major South Florida sporting events, and attracting smaller sporting events.
