Sports Tourism Strategist Graduates Honored

STS graduate Marcia class

A Manhattan tourism professional was recently honored as a leader in the sports tourism industry.

Marcia Rozell, sports and leisure tourism manager at the Manhattan Convention & Visitors Bureau, was recognized as a Sports Tourism Strategist graduate by Sports ETA. The ceremony was held at the association’s largest event of the year recently in Fort Worth.

Sports ETA is the only trade association for the sports events and tourism industry. More than 800 sports events and tourism industry leaders attended the Sports ETA Symposium, which offers dozens of continuing education programs and networking opportunities over the four days.

“Marcia is dedicated in marketing Manhattan’s many sports opportunities,” said Karen Hibbard, Manhattan CVB and Visit Manhattan executive director. “The STS certification she earned provides her with exceptional event management skills and marketing know-how for sporting events in Manhattan and the Flint Hills region.  Marcia has been instrumental in attracting sporting events to Manhattan such as geo-cashing, the Bleeding Kansas Gravelduro bike race, as well as the inaugural corn hole tournament held this year in our new recreation facilities.“ 

Of the 40 sports tourism professionals honored for their completion of their STS certification program, only two are from Kansas.  Marica Rozell, Sports and Leisure Sales Manager, with Visit Manhattan, and Holly Leiker with Visit Hutch. This certification program is the leading-edge educational institute for the sports events and tourism industry offering topical content, in-depth and industry leading certification programs.
