Palmetto Region has been able to offer the event entry fee up to 50% less than other comparable multi-day tournaments and obtain hotel room rates at competitive group rates. The city tracks verifiable room blocks to determine the economic value of the tournament to the local economy (the key word is” verifiable”).
The higher the economic value of an event, the greater the willingness of the city to make the facility available on the desired dates for the tournament, offer hotel rooms at affordable group rates and facility at a reasonable price. This, in turn, helps to keep the costs of running the event in check and protects team costs from major escalation year to year.
