The Salt Lake Convention & Visitors Bureau and Utah Sports Commission jointly announced the appointment of Jason Badell to the Director of Athletic Market Sales, a unique partnership between to the two marketing organizations to fulfill the like-minded objectives of each: to secure additional athletic-oriented meetings, convention and events to the Salt Lake area.

Jeff Robbins, president & CEO of the Utah Sports Commission, added, “From the 2002 Olympic Winter Games to this past summer’s PrimalQuest Adventure Race and Tour of Utah Cycling Race showed, Utah offers the infrastructure, accessibility and talent necessary to produce large-scale athletic events; the state’s unique venues and breathtaking scenery simply add a component to an event unequaled by anywhere else in the nation.”

The Salt Lake Convention & Visitors Bureau is a private, non-profit corporation responsible for the promotion of Salt Lake as a convention and travel destination.
