OUR 2024 HOSTING PARTNERS
Spo Ho Xperience™ has been designed for DISRUPTERS, FORWARD-THINKERS, and CHANGEMAKERS who represent destinations, sport event organizers, venues, hospitality & travel professionals, and the education sector of the sport hosting industry.
A carefully curated group of attendees (aka the ‘Players’) gather at SPOHOX™ to CHANGE the game and score BIG in the sport hosting industry.
Attendance at Spo Ho Xperience™ is by invite only with strict limits on attendance numbers (quality over quantity) and an intentional balance between events rights holders, suppliers, and destination partners.
SPOHOX™ was born out of the desire to LEVEL UP Canada’s sport hosting game.
It’s a place where sport hosting professionals can openly share different perspectives, explore new opportunities, and think beyond the status quo.
Known for its unique, boutique feel and personalized VIP experiences, SPOHOX™ delivers intimate and meaningful connections and business development between some of North America’s top sport tourism talent.
