Sporting events are worth more than $10 billion to the U.S. economy and fill 98 million hotel rooms annually because of game changers like you. Connect Sports is looking to honor the industry’s sharpest minds—the people who have elevated sports tourism through innovation and precise execution. Help us pick the sports world’s behind-the-scenes MVPs by filling out this nomination form. Be sure to include what makes the individual a true game changer, a person who continues to elevate our industry. Nominations are due by May 18.

After all nominations are received, they will be reviewed and evaluated by our team of editors and selected based on references, industry involvement and honors, social media presence and other industry resources.
