Each year the National Sports Forum features 80+ speakers from a variety of leagues, organizations, agencies and top spokespeople within the sports industry.
Below are the speakers for the 2017 National Sports Forum.
VP, Ticket Services & Client Relations
San Francisco Giants
Russ Stanley, who enters his 27th season with the San Francisco Giants, is responsible for the ticket sales and fulfillment of all events at AT&T Park and Spring Training games at Scottsdale Stadium. He is a pioneer in developing and implementing the dynamic ticket pricing model commonplace today in professional sports. The Giants were the first professional sports team to adapt this structure.
Stanley and his team of sales, operations, client relations, and luxury suites staff have implemented many progressive ideas that are designed to continually improve the fan experience at AT&T Park and Scottsdale Stadium. Many of these electronically based programs include the reselling of tickets online, relaying tickets via email, finding ticket partners for season ticket members and providing the opportunity for donating tickets on line. Most recently his group rolled out an In Game Seat Upgrade program as well as a Ticket Consignment program for season ticket members. Under Stanley’s leadership, his team of ticket and sales professionals continues to set the bar for the sports ticketing industry.
The San Francisco State graduate spent eight years at Marine World before embarking on his Giants career.
