Hilton e-Events Sports Parents Giveaway

by Monica

Soccer, Softball, Volleyball, Baseball, Swimming… the list for extracurricular sports activities can go on and on. And many of these activities require a good amount of travel!

Planning these trips, including transportation and lodging for these large groups can cause a lot of headaches and stress, and all you really want to do is relax, enjoy your time, and play hard, all while having fun.

But we have some great news — Hilton Family e-Events is trying to make these trips a lot easier for the parents to plan! With Hilton Family e-Events, you can book a group of 5-25 rooms online! It’s perfect for sports team travel!

Hilton Family e-Events offers:

  • 24/7 online access, no negotiation, no RFP, no waiting, immediate confirmation
  • Online contract
  • Access to over 2,500 Hilton Family hotels (variety of brands, price points and amenities)

Talk about convenient!

It’s not only great for sports events, you can use it for just about any family function! You can even book meeting rooms, guest rooms for business or social events, family reunions, weddings and much more! You’ll receive immediate confirmation of your booking, and 24/7 access to manage your reservation details!

It all sounds wonderful right? Well it gets better…

We get to offer one lucky parent the chance to try out e-Events for free — a prize valued up $3000!

Here’s what you can win, courtesy of the Hilton:

A room block consists of five to 25 reserved rooms a parent can block off for his/her child and their teammates while traveling with their sports team. Normally, guests then use their own credit card to pay for their specific room.

However, our lucky winner and his/her fellow guests will receive a complimentary room block (up to $3000 in value!) courtesy of Hilton e-Events.

To qualify/claim prize the winner must:

  • Book his/her guest room through e-Events online planning tool.
  • Book his/her guest rooms in a Hilton Family market at a participating Hilton Family property*
  • Use the guest room blocks for travel with their child’s sports team (and share with us the name of tournament/sports event his/her child will be playing in)

Hilton will compensate the winner for a guest room block up to and including $3000 in value (average price of a room block).

This is my first year as a real hockey mom (first year we are playing real games). And we have a few tournaments coming up that this would be great for.

2 Ronnie Crowley January 28, 2009 at 8:24 am

Love this idea. This is something which works for all kid activities. Would be great to win and be able to share with everyone on the team.

I have a feed so I think I get more chances.

What a fantastic idea!! i have 2 kids that are on the road CONSTANTLY! the stress and money that goes into youth sports travel is insane. I’m definitely going to pass this along to our teams! Thanks for sharing!

oh the traveling soccer team would love this

6 Gina January 28, 2009 at 9:26 am

Wow!!! This would be fantastic to offer our team! My oldest daughter is on a traveling soccer team and it’s often quite a hardship to stay overnight, but driving 4 -6 hours home isn’t an option either! Especially with 2 day tournaments!

What a great giveaway- I am a basketball tournament director and we have 10-15 traveling teams in our organization as well. This sounds like it would make things much easier!

Every parent who works with their kids in sports activities, coaching or watching and cheering, should be aware of the code of ethics for sports parents. The following is a good example and one that you can copy and hand-out to other parents.


35 Bettina February 8, 2009 at 1:24 am

This would be so awesome to win!

36 SarahHub February 11, 2009 at 9:14 pm

My daughter is too young to be on a sports team, but we have a BIG family. This would be a great tool to use for planning a family reunion!

37 LuckyDiana February 14, 2009 at 8:02 pm

Lucking forward to win this one. I have 4 very active kids and their friends to share with.

38 Emily R February 17, 2009 at 3:22 am

This would be awesome! I’m a teacher, so I generally have a more flexible schedule during the summer than my working parents. As a result, I’m the one who usually ends up toting my sister and her friends to softball tournaments in the summer. I’d love to be able to win this!

39 Emily R February 17, 2009 at 3:23 am

I’ve added you to my Google Reader. I think that means I get an extra entry for RSS feed?

ooooh this would be great for my daughter’s karate competitions

41 Zoey February 18, 2009 at 10:01 pm

Awesome idea – I could use this for my son’s NASCAR races!
