Our own Laurie Pike, Director of Sales and Marketing for MPH Hotels Florida Division, was privileged to join a special celebration today at Nathan Benderson Park.
The world-class rowing facility located along the Sarasota-Manatee County line is the prized host site of the 2017 World Rowing Championships. Earlier today, Sarasota government officials and members of the community joined together at the site of the 2017 World Rowing Championships to commemorate the regatta being only 365 days away! U.S. Olympic gold medalist rower Amanda Polk also attended to stress the significance of the 2017 event.
The World Rowing Championships will take place in Sarasota-Bradenton, September 23-October 1, 2017. With 40,000 in attendance and 1,700 elite, world class athletes on hand from more than 60 countries, Sarasota looks forward to welcoming MANY Champions to our gorgeous city.
Of course, the Comfort Suites Sarasota team is proud to serve as host to select rowing teams during the World Rowing Championships. Click here to check rates and availability during the event, or any time your schedule allows for a “Championship-style” trip to Sarasota!
