NVL

July 30, 2013, London, UK.

Eventility is pleased to announce its partnership with The National Volleyball League (NVL) to create a real-time, connected, online community of everything volleyball in the USA.

“This partnership significantly helps us with our goal of uniting the volleyball community. It makes it really simple for people to organize and find anything that’s going on in volleyball across the country and get involved. With over 173,000 club volleyball programs in the USA we’re incredibly excited by that potential and to be working with Eventility to achieve this.” Stated AL-B Hannemann, CEO of The National Volleyball League

The NVL is using Eventility’s ‘Engage’ solution for associations, which seamlessly connects multiple clubs, events and volleyball related activities together.  It brings communications, events, payments, member and data management into one, easy-to-use place. Engage helps solve the problem of managing and promoting associations’ networks and capturing meaningful, connected and up-to-date information.

Volleyball clubs get an easy way to organize and promote their own events and activities with a powerful suite of free tools. As coaches, organizers and managers post new content, it’s updated in real-time to the NVL and Eventility websites and mobile apps giving an up-to date, unparalleled view of what’s happening in the volleyball community.

“Our Eventility ‘Engage’ solution has been specifically designed to help associations and organizations like the National Volleyball League with objectives to understand and increase participation. All of us at Eventility are extremely excited about working with the NVL. They’re a fantastic and passionate team and we’re proud to be supporting them.” Robin Brattel, CEO of Eventility

The NVL is a player-focused league that simultaneously allows fans unprecedented access to the sport’s greatest stars. Often produced in conjunction with large-scale lifestyle events, NVL tournaments are designed to showcase the players, sport and lifestyle of beach volleyball among new and existing audiences nationwide.

Additionally, the NVL strives to elevate the visibility and credibility of beach volleyball by cultivating lasting relationships between the league and the greater community. Through education, coaching and accessibility, the NVL continually works to bridge gaps and drive the sport to new levels. At the core of this movement is a commitment to fostering meaningful relationships and collaborating with the entire beach volleyball community at all levels, including youth, junior, collegiate and professional. As a result, pro beach volleyball will finally have the opportunity it deserves to thrive on domestic sand.

Eventility Attends the 2013 USA AAU Girls’ Junior Volleyball National Championship in Sunny Orlando

IMG_2271Our 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!

Volleyball EventWe asked Adam to provide us with an insight about who they met and what they got up to whilst in Orlando and he was kind enough to answer the following questions.

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.
