Hampton Roads Sports Commission chooses PSE Tournament Housing to manage the housing for the 2015 AAU Junior Olympic Games

May 24, 2013 – After a lengthy evaluation process that included the Norfolk CVB, Hampton CVB, Chesapeake CVB, Virginia Beach CVB and Newport News Tourism, Morgan Lang with the Hampton Roads Sports Commission announced today their decision to utilize Pse Tournament Housing (Pse) to manage the housing needs for the 2015 AAU Junior Olympic Games. 

“We are looking forward to working with Pse Tournament Housing,” remarks Morgan Lang, Executive Director with the Hampton Roads Sports Commission.  “Since our first encounter we have been impressed with their professionalism, organization, customer service and overall knowledge of the business. Looking ahead to the 2015 AAU Junior Olympic Games, Pse met our goal of having a housing bureau that was familiar with the AAU Junior Olympics and what it takes to make the athletes, coaches and parents have a positive all around experience.”

This group successfully hosted the Junior Olympic Games in 2010 and played host to over 17,000 participants and coaches.  Housing is a tough task for an event this size with so many working parts.  Experience, which all parties have, will play an important role in the success of the event in 2015. 

“Obviously our team is very pleased about the decision and proud to have the opportunity to contribute to the success of this prestigious event." says Pse's president and CEO, Jeff Lukasak. "We are looking to helping each host city accomplish their housing goals.  At Pse, we are always looking for ways to improve and evolve our service to make it better for our customers.  Our firsthand experience with this event has really allowed us to see what works and what doesn’t.  That allows us to tailor our service to achieve better results, and it is something we will continue to do.”

Pse puts a strong emphasis on quality and innovation, including the latest technology as it applies to the attendee booking experience.  Since 2002, Pse has specialized in coordinating and managing the hotel accommodation needs for larger scale sports events across the country. Notable events include the 2012 Ryder Cup, 2012 AAU Jr Olympics, 2013 AAU Jr Olympics and the 2014 FIL Lacrosse World Championships hosted by US Lacrosse.  In 2013 Pse will help over 150 events accomplish optimal housing results.
