Our CEO Robin Brattel and our Account Director, Adam Harris were lucky enough to jet out to sunny Orlando, Florida last week. We didn’t want them coming back with too much of a tan though so we sent them off to the USA AAU Girls’ Junior Volleyball Championship to spread the word about Eventility.
We must say, they did a great job and the outcome is that there are going to be some exciting new developments for Eventility in the coming months. At the same time the guys were in Orlando, we also had a branded presence over in Texas at the National Volleyball League Texas Championships. Even better, our video was played in between games and was seen by over 200,000 people. America here we come!
1) What was the purpose of the event?
It was the 40th Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) Girls’ Junior National Volleyball Championships.
2) Who was at the event?
It was absolutely jam-packed full of people from all over the USA. There were 1,997 teams from 40 regions, 25,000 under-18s girls playing volleyball every single day, the families of the athletes, staff from AAU, the National Volleyball League (NVL), more than 400 college coaches, club directors, regional directors, the Junior Volleyball Association (JVA) and a whole host of vendors, including Rox Volleyball. The only downside was that it was physically impossible for Robin and me to get round to talking to everyone who was there.
3) Where did the event take place?
The event was held in two venues. One of them, ESPN Wide World of Sports and the main venue was The Orange County Convention Centre. This is the largest indoor sports facility in the world and last year they broke world record for hosting the largest volleyball tournament.
4) What did you do at the event?
We were certainly kept busy during our time in Orlando. We met with the NVL, networked with coaches and club directors who are interested in using Eventility and even managed to sign up coaches who were so excited about the concept that they wanted to get started straight away.
We also met with the JVA and AAU who were interested in finding out more about Eventility and attended a seminar about the future of Sand Volleyball, which is actually one of the fastest growing sports in the USA. We were also really excited about meeting the great people at Rox Volleyball and are looking forward to working with in the future.
5) What did you achieve from attending?
We feel like we well and truly spread the word about Eventility. So many great associations and tours such as the NVL, JVA and AAU, and companies like Rox Volleyball now know about us, and lots of volleyball coaches are already signed up to Eventility.
It looks like we’re going to have to send Adam and Robin away more often after they did such a great job. Stay tuned for regular updates on more exciting news about our recent developments and progress in America.
