The National Sports Forum is the largest annual cross gathering of the top team sports marketing, sales, promotions and event entertainment executives -- from throughout the broad spectrum of teams and leagues, (i.e. NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, Minor Leagues, Racing, Colleges, etc.), in North America. (On Average, 75-80% of our attendees come from the US, with Canada comprising approximately another 20%.)
We meet each year for three days of networking, idea sharing and listening to the industry’s top spokespeople, through numerous breakout sessions, panel discussions, networking events and keynote speeches.
I learned a variety of things by attending the National Sports Forum, most importantly was the idea sharing of all the different organizations. It's important to continue learning and what better way than from people in the same field as you? We also learned about new technology that is used in the sports world and how they are being used.
Networking was key, I gained specific ideas to bring back to team, and overall a sense of direction of where the sporting industry is heading. Since the sporting industry is so small, it was extremely valuable to be with like-minded people in an open environment to exchange ideas.
Attending the National Sports Forum provided me a list of ideas to share with the team. I would also say that I made connections with a ton of vendors, clients, & peers across the sports world.
By attending the National Sports Forum this year, I continued to develop relationships from the previous year's NSF, and met other valuable relationships in the industry. I learned techniques that other teams are using while sharing things that have added value for the Texas Rangers Baseball Club.
I would inform my colleagues that I had an incredible experience at the National Sports Forum. I was able to learn and challenge myself through the Case Cup competition. I connected with numerous individuals working in various sports fields and gained insight into what is happening in the Sports world today.
