Find new event host

Win more sports events & maximize your existing events

“We are a destination that has great potential with the sporting venues our city has, as well as the new development in our downtown districts. The platform that Playeasy provides is one of the top ways for us to promote our events & city to people & organizations who would likely not have found us. We have had events blossom in ways we never could have dreamed of & a lot of that success must be given to Playeasy.” – Robert Anders (Brownwood TX Sport Coordinator)   

Robert works for Brownwood, TX who has a population size of roughly 18,500. Not the biggest destination (biggest heart though!). He’s found value on Playeasy by taking advantage of the tools at hand to grow his community and get time back.   

Robert consistently markets Brownwood’s sports events on Playeasy. As a result, they’ve reached the #1 trending destination multiple times. This not only helps them stand out from the crowd to generate more qualified leads, but also boost registration and ticket sales for their partners.  

Every piece of content on Playeasy is SEO-optimized to get found across the internet. So by marketing your events on Playeasy, they’re found higher on Google searches when people look for new events (hence more eyeballs on your events).  

Visitor guides are great for showcasing things to do in the area. Yet, it’s tough to track which businesses are getting the most attention from a PDF or handout. And it’s difficult to get sports families to take time to view these. The last thing you want is for your event attendees to stay in their hotel and just order a pizza. You want visitors to enjoy what your community has to offer and support your local businesses.   

We look to solve this by giving attendees a smooth user experience on Playeasy to interact with these event pages digitally. They can interact with Brownwood’s local businesses, hotels, and promotions on one page driving more traffic to Brownwood’s website or external pages. Robert can then see real time analytics to track data of each business’ views or promotions redeemed. Some even use it as a virtual show-your-badge program. It gives Brownwood a way to promote their community to the sports audience months in advance. And proves their marketing impact on each business and hotel.   

Going the extra mile like this gives the event organizer another reason to return next year.  

You know what they say. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink. Well. Robert chugged the water and he’s crushing it. (Especially for such a small community which can struggle to stand out at sports conferences).    

Hundreds of people like Robert are using Playeasy to both win new events and maximize their existing events. We’ve invested millions of dollars into our technology for that purpose right there. To provide technology that helps you do your job more efficiently and effectively. To help destinations through every step of the sports event life cycle.

Product Updates 

‘Playeasy PEstimate’ – Economic Impact Estimator   

Sourced from 20 years of data gathered from the Sports Facilities Companies, the PEstimate shows the estimated economic impact Playeasy leads could bring into host cities. This helps destinations make data-driven decisions before bidding on events.  

Each destination also has a dashboard that breaks down the estimated economic impact across all their leads. Organizing this data will be important when going to your city or state for increased funding or feasibility projects.  Click here to view more information about what data is included in the Playeasy PEstimate.   

New State Pages  

Playeasy custom state pages highlight the state’s destinations, sports facilities, and sports events all in one place. They include branded facility and event marketplaces for people to search within. And all state pages are automatically updated anytime a destination adds new content to their profile. Incredible marketing material for conferences for people to scan QR codes and be directly taken to the state page to see all content.   

Here’s a link to check out Michigan’s state page.  

New Website Integrations  

Destinations and facilities can integrate Playeasy with their website in real time. You can sync your sports facilities, events, and local businesses to your website. All with a simple widget. It works on almost any website (doesn’t need to be Simpleview).    

Anytime you add a new venue, event, or piece of content on Playeasy it syncs to your website in real time. This makes you more efficient and saves thousands on website development costs. Helps you not rely on IT for changes and it’s as easy as updating a Facebook profile.  

Here’s an example of a facility website integrationevents integration, and sports promotions integration.

Local Business Direct Promotion  

Local businesses can see nearby upcoming events and promote discounts to event attendees themselves. There are currently 11 stand-out destinations involving their community to use this feature.

All tracked with analytics in real time.

We can’t unveil the next product launch quite yet… but it’s going to be massive. It has the potential to change the way the industry tracks certain data. The data most people get paid on… that’s all I can say for now.
