The New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame is seeking a host community for the 51st annual Induction Gala in 2020.
For more than 48 years, the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame has honoured New Brunswick’s outstanding athletes, teams and sports builders by granting them permanent recognition in our provincial sports shrine. Legends such as Yvon Durelle, Willie O’Ree, Ron Turcotte, Marianne Limpert, and Rheal Cormier have been enshrined, and each year up to six new inductees are added in the presence of family and friends, Hall of Famers and other prominent members of the sport and business communities. The annual Induction Gala is the highlight of the sports year in New Brunswick!
We are confident that your municipality will experience long-lasting benefits from hosting this event, not to mention, that according to the Canadian Tourism Research Institute’s Sport Tourism Economic Assessment Tool, the event on average will generate a total of $150,000 of economic activity in the local area.
Recent host communities include: Bathurst in 2019, Moncton in 2018, Quispamsis in 2017, Shippagan in 2016 and Shediac in 2015.
If you are interested in hosting the annual Induction Gala in your community in 2020, please submit a proposal as outlined in the enclosed RFP document.
Note: only proposals received at the NBSHF office by noon on March 30, 2018 will be considered. For information, please do not hesitate to contact the NBSHF office.
