1. NCAA Final Four Men’s Basketball Championship
March 31, 2017 – April 4, 2017
University of Phoenix Stadium
The NCAA Final Four has become the ultimate long weekend capping off with the Monday night championship. This year’s venue in the Valley of the Sun provides opportunities to spa and golf as well as watch the action on the hardwood. See the nets get cut down at this year’s Final Four in Arizona. The CAA Premium offerings include hotel accommodations in downtown Scottsdale, tickets, a pre-game chalk talk with college basketball talent, and roundtrip transportation.
2. The Masters
April 6-9, 2017
Augusta National Golf Club
In less than a week each year, some 250,000 golf fans come to Augusta, Georgia, and research shows they leave about $125 million behind.
Going to The Masters is tricky, even from a VIP perspective, because in a county with a population of less than 200,000 there aren’t sufficient hotels, and certainly nothing at a 5-star level. Therefore, housing is a combination of limited service hotels (Think Staybridge Suites and Econo Lodge) and homes that are rented out. CAA Premium provides a literal Chinese menu of options, including tickets, hospitality for the entire duration or on a per day basis, evening events, tickets, dedicated transfers, hotels and houses that sleep up to eight. CAA operates its own private hospitality tent with name entertainers, tapping into its impressive roster of clients. Hospitality areas include gourmet food, plentiful HDTVs so you don’t miss any action, massage areas, bars and even a cigar lounge.
Private homes are located in West Lake, Jones Creek, and Hammonds Ferry as well as other places.
3. The Kentucky Derby
May 4 – May 7, 2017
The Run for the Roses is one of those great sporting events where you can create memories that last a lifetime for your best clients and friends. With over 150,000 visitors descending on a midsize city for a single day event, it also puts strain on availability of everything from hotel rooms to black cars. CAA Premium’s take on “the fastest two minutes in sports” includes accommodations at the Hyatt Regency Downtown, which gets mainly Excellent and Very Good ratings on Trip Advisor. There are tickets to the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks, hospitality access, and roundtrip transportation to the events. On Thursday there is access to the Taste of Derby Party, including food tastings, premium open bar, and live entertainment. You get First Floor Clubhouse tickets to the Kentucky Oaks (Friday) and Kentucky Derby (Saturday). You also get access to the Derby Club at the Hyatt Regency Thursday evening through Sunday morning.
