Preparing for Your Event

Hotel Accommodations

Affordable hotels are plentiful in Columbia, SC. Working with us means you won't have to spend time or money comparing hotel rates. Our staff provides this service at no cost. Once we have your tentative event dates, we'll create a list of comparative hotel rates including special group rates.

Note: Courtesy Block vs. Contract Block – A courtesy block does not come with a contract and attrition clauses. A courtesy block means the hotel can hold a small group of rooms for you up until a certain date. This date is typically about a month out from your event date. If the rooms you have reserved on a courtesy block with the hotel are not booked by your attendees by that date, the hotel is free to release the rooms and sell to other clients and transient guests. A courtesy block is typically 10 rooms at a hotel.

Event Promotion

Our marketing team can analyze your current marketing strategies and help collaborate on the promotion and execution of the event. We'll utilize our media contacts to boost your pre-event exposure, and we'll also shine a spotlight on the event to increase community awareness.

Let us help with press releases, listings on our event pages and social media. We can also connect you to a co-op advertising program to promote events through digital billboards in nearby cities like Charlotte, Asheville, Greenville, Charleston and more. 

Food & Transportation 

From finding group dining options to unique venue locations and even transportation options, we’ll put you in direct contact with special event services for your competitors and their families.

Wellness and Safety

As a modern city, Columbia SC is prepared to support the wellness and safety of athletes and attendees. In case of an emergency our team can direct you to local hospitals, urgent treatment centers, and pharmacies. As you prepare for visiting Columbia SC, we’re also happy to connect you with athletic trainers and advise on local dining and grocery options to get you ready for the game.

Enjoying the City 

Columbia's characteristic Southern charm (and food!) make everyone feel right at home. And with so much to see and do, your athletes and their fan clubs can look forward to exploring this capital city beyond the main event. We'll provide your group with insider tipscity guides and blog insights
