It is no secret that the City of Stockton has gone through its challenges. However, 2015 will mark a new, a time for moving forward, and a time to grow into a new roll. The team at Visit Stockton has been pushing hard for the past couple years to promote Stockton to all that may bring business to our city, now it is time for everyone to rally together and do it with us.
As Visit Stockton representatives travel around to meet with potential event organizers, we are often asked about past events, how they went, and how the attendance was at these events. With this, supporting Stockton’s growth can be as simple as attending a sporting event or community function. This simple act means much more than just occupying a seat at the event. This act shows the rest of the country that our city rallies behind events and should they choose to bring their event to town, the event will be a successful one.
There are other opportunities to get involved to help Stockton grow. Visit Stockton introduced a program nearly two years ago, our Certified Ambassador program. Designed to give residents and employees in the are the resources to assist visitors, the program has certified nearly 200 people in town. We are always looking for additional help and do what we can to show appreciation for those that join us. For more information, contact Megan at the Visit Stockton office (209) 938-1555, or click here.
Or, you can help in a more hands on approach. Reach out to a local sporting event organizer, or community event organizer. Whether it be a local little league, sports club, or anything like that, they always need additional help and I know it would be appreciated. A little help goes a long ways and although it may be hard to picture exactly what your value is, trust me…it is appreciated more than you can imagine.
Now, looking forward to the beginning of sporting events in 2015, the first community sporting event is the St. Mary’s High School MLK Girls Basketball tournament. Held on MLK holiday weekend, this tournament showcases the rich history of girls basketball at the school and brings in teams from across the area. For more information on this tournament, click here.
