What is the Event Marketplace?

This article will tackle what the Event Marketplace is, how it works, and why it will be monumental for your business.

1. What is the Event Marketplace?

  • The Event Marketplace is the industry's first ever two-sided filterable marketplace to unite Event Organizers, Destinations, and Facilities to sports organizations, active teams, players, parents, and fans. Event Organizers, Destinations, and Facilities can partner to create a marketed event, their own webpage to advertise and build excitement for their upcoming sporting event, within minutes. Enter your event name, location, dates, description, and include links to register, buy tickets, and book hotels.

2. Why market events on Playeasy?

  • Our revolutionary Event Marketplace will connect both sides of the equation - the planners to the players - to grow events and build relationships across the nation. Marketed Events will automatically be displayed on Playeasy's filterable event marketplace, which will be accessed by Playeasy's audience. 
  • Event Organizers and Destinations can build awareness by reaching new teams and participants who may not know about their events. Through our partnership with TeamSnap, made up of 19K clubs, 2 million teams & 25 million participants, Event Organizers can hit their target audience in just a few clicks! 

3. How is the Event Marketplace beneficial to Destinations?

  • Destinations and Event Organizers' co-marketed events appear on the Event Marketplace. When a potential registrant or spectator views the event, they will have the option to book a hotel, buy a ticket, register for the event, and visit your Destination Profile. Listing your events on Playeasy's Event Marketplace eases communication with spectators and registrants, and demonstrates all that you have to offer - hopefully increasing length of stay. Additionally, marketed events will collect in your Event Portfolio on your Destination page which builds credibility with Event Organizers looking to host a future event in your Destination. 

4. Do you need to have a Playeasy Profile in order to market events on Playeasy's Event Marketplace?
