Wyndham Jade Launches Jade Sports, Debuting at TEAMS 2015
Jade Sports Leverages Advanced Technology, Experienced Housing Management for Sports Team Travel
PLANO, TX – (November 9, 2015) –Today, Wyndham Jade announces its entry into the sports team travel market under the brand Jade Sports. Jade Sports is the company’s new division, leveraging more than 30 years of experience in group housing, travel management, strategic planning, industry relationships and top-tier technology for the amateur sports travel industry. As part of the brand launch, Jade Sports will attend the TEAMS ’15 Conference and Expo, Nov. 9-12 in Las Vegas. Jade Sports will be located at booth #203.
“The sports team travel market is a growing vertical for us,” said Bryan A. Scott, President of Jade Sports. “This is a growing market that has a need for the expertise and advanced technology that we offer.”
The team sports housing industry has grown steadily over the past 10 years, with visitor spending increasing approximately 14 percent from 2011 to 2014, as reported by the National Association of Sports Commissions (NASC). This spend is projected to increase in the coming years. According to the 2013 Sports, Fitness and Leisure Activities Topline Participation Report, between 2011 and 2012 participants spent two percent more money on team sports outside of school. This shift indicates a trend toward participants spending more as part of the overall sports experience, including travel. Forecasted numbers for 2013 and beyond indicate increases in spending in this category.
Backed by the expertise and technology of Wyndham Jade, Jade Sports offers a complete team travel solution to clients.
Current Jade Sports clients include:
• adidas Windy City National Qualifier, an annual volleyball tournament hosted at McCormick Place in Chicago.
• ASICS Junior National Volleyball Championship, an annual volleyball tournament hosted at Chicago’s iconic Navy Pier.
• Maui Jim Maui Invitational, an NCAA basketball tournament hosted at the Lahaina Civic Center in Hawaii.
