Building Rowing Tourism
We firmly believe in the benefits of travel. We are passionate about rowing. Which makes us rowing travel evangelists. We are on a mission to work together to build rowing tourism worldwide.
Rowing tourism supports clubs financially and furthers development of rowing in new locations. There is the additional benefit of the connection amongst rowers from different cities and countries.
Rowing The World™ offers a suite of services for developing, selling and running your world-class rowing experience. Rowing tourism requires not only the creation of quality trips and experiences, but also their successful delivery. The successful delivery of rowing tourism experiences can be challenging for rowing volunteers, staff and athletes, since it needs to integrate components such as promotion, selling, administering and guiding the trips. These aspects of a tourism experience are often poorly understood and under-estimated.
With over 25 years of experience as an adventure travel tour operator and in tourism consulting, Rowing The World™ and its sister company, Marr Consulting International Ltd., can assist clubs, federations or other businesses to bring their rowing travel dreams to fruition. We have already started. A successful collaboration among World Rowing, Rowing Association of Maldives and Rowing The WorldTM led to the successful FISA Development Tour – Maldives 2015, followed by another trip in 2016 and plans for future trips, including a planned evolution to shorter, locally guided experiences.
We will tailor and customize our services to suit your needs, circumstances and preferences. We have ideas on how to minimize the upfront investment and maximize the long term sustainability and benefits.
Here are some of the ways that we can work with individuals, clubs, federations and other business. It is a menu, from which you can pick and choose:
- Assessment of rowing tourism potential and assistance in the creation of new trips or modification of existing packages.
- Workshops and guide training services.
- Marketing, including promotion on The Rowing Travel Hub, social media and other outreach.
- Selling through our e-commerce site.
- Administration such as coordinating with guests and payment of suppliers.
- Partnership in the delivery or operation of the trips.
Contact us. We would be happy to discuss ideas and options with you.
Rowing travel is a way to increase and sustain lifelong participation in rowing. The more choices we have, the better for individual rowers and for the rowing community.
