PT Watersports Inc.
PT Watersports Inc. is a recreational firm that specializes in the installation and management of inflatable water parks, utilizing Wibit SportsPark products. These inflatable water parks can be installed on any body of water for the summer season, and provide not only a fun environment for patrons, but also one where safety is of highest concern.
PT Watersports currently operates inflatable water parks in the Binbrook Conservation Area outside of Hamilton, ON, and in St. Marys Quarry, ON. They also team with local organizations to establish fundraiser programs for local communities.
The Corporation of the City of Welland issued a call for proposals from firms capable of supplying, installing, managing, and maintaining an inflatable water park for the upcoming 2020 summer season. With a location in the active Welland Canal, respondents needed to be aware of ongoing shipping traffic, while creating a safe place for players in the water park. The successful proponent also needed to be able to staff the park and provide removable storage.
PT Watersports contacted Outsource Marketing to help prepare and submit a proposal that not only would be selected by the City of Welland, but to also create operational documents for the company that could be included within the bid.
Our Plan of Action
The key to writing a strong proposal was in learning all we could about inflatable water parks, their manufacture and installation. This included interviewing PT Watersports’ co-founder, Teresa Jackson, and utilizing as much valuable content as we could from past proposals. Along with reviewing information about PT Watersports’ other waterparks, and the promotional materials and methods they use in these locations, we were able to put together a proposal submission that detailed the equipment to be used, how it was to be installed, and how the park would be managed. This emphasized the durability of the equipment, and the safety of patrons by highlighting the process through which PT Watersports hires its lifeguards and manages its safety equipment. We also assembled an operations manual for all PT Watersports water parks, which was included in this RFP response.
Not only did we receive word that PT Watersports Inc. was the successful proponent for this RPF, we also learned that PT Watersports has taken on a leadership role with the City, and is guiding them through the process of establishing a new park that is scheduled to open in 2021.
