Connect Sports is the sports tourism industry's only fully hosted buyer program for qualified sporting event organizers and planners. Find new and exciting destinations, venues, and facilities to work with, network with your industry partners, and prepare to take your events to the next level!


In 2022, join us in Detroit, the home of risk-taking entrepreneurs, creative incubators, edgy restaurants and spaces, funky hotels and three high-energy sports arenas. Plus, hard-hustling Detroiters are behind all of it. These new things — and more keep coming — are signs that Detroit is unequivocally an IT city. One that’s being touted as energetic, experimental with a touch of the underground. One that’s more than ready to play the perfect host to the 2022 Connect Marketplace.
