We are excited to announce our partnership with Lucid Travel, a platform that helps event organisers generate additional revenue by selling accommodation as part of their registration process.

Lucid Travel aggregate rates from top travel sites to find the best rate for their customers, serving them up through custom branded sites specific to each organisation, making selling accommodation incredibly simple for National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) and their event organisers.

They already partner with thousands of event organisers, and through an integration with the Sport:80 Platform, are now able to put their innovative travel tech at the fingertips of the community of NGBs and sports organisations we work with.

Our COO, Jonny Turner, expressed his delight at partnering with Lucid Travel: “We know from our ongoing conversations with our community that NGBs are always on the look out for innovative new ways to generate additional revenues for themselves, and for their community of clubs and local event organisers. Lucid Travel’s commitment to supporting sports organisations in this area is why we have been so passionate about working with them.

“Recovering from the pandemic, fighting a cost-of-living crisis, and facing down a global recession has put NGBs and sports clubs in a precarious position, so it is absolutely vital we support our customers to safeguard their futures and explore every avenue for strengthening their financial position.

“Not only that, but Lucid Travel’s solution is a really exciting one, and can support so many people in automating manual booking processes, cutting back on unnecessary costs, and saving hours of valuable time.”

With the Lucid Travel integration, event organisers that set up events through the Sport:80 Platform can invite event entrants and attendees to book accommodation through a unique Lucid Travel link. NGBs can collect a percentage of the total fee for every room night booked, as well as offering the ability for event organisers to do the same. All while retaining market-leading rates for their customers.

“We are extremely excited to partner with Sport:80, and provide their community of forward-thinking NGBs and sports organizations with innovative travel services to increase their revenues and simplify their processes”, said Ben Knosby, CEO at Lucid Travel.

“Our two companies share a common goal to do everything in our power to improve the capacity of sports organizations to continually grow and improve, and we believe our partnership can act as another significant step forward in this area.”
