NCWA Participates in TEAMS 08 Conference

11/01/2008 -

PITTSBURGH - National Collegiate Wrestling Association representatives recently met with organizations from across the United States in the Travel, Events, and Management in Sports (TEAMS) conference in Pittsburgh on October 21-25.
The event is used to bring together representatives from different sports organizations across the United States while also providing a venue for the exchange of new ideas in sports management.
"(Participating in the conference) not only gave the NCWA a presence at an event where leagues like the NFL, PGA, NCAA, and NASCAR were present, but it helped us determine the cities that had an interest in hosting our events," NCWA President Jim Giunta said.
"We want to host events in cities that genuinely want wrestling and the NCWA in particular."
A first time attendee at the TEAMS convention, the response to the NCWA's participation was a clear indication of the 11-year old organization's improvement and expansion.
"We were swamped," Giunta said. "We had a full schedule of appointments with prospective cities, CVBs, and sports commissions."
Giunta said the league was able to meet with 40 different organizations and had requests to speak with another 30, though was unable to meet the high demand due to time constraints.
"It was fantastic to make hundreds of contacts in a great sports city like Pittsburgh,".
