About Us

 

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. Speakers in the past have included:

  • Phil Castellini, COO of the Cincinnati Reds
  • Terdema Ussery, President & CEO of the Dallas Mavericks
  • Alex Martins, COO of the Orlando Magic
  • Gary Bettman, Commissioner of the National Hockey League
  • Jeanie Buss, EVP of the L.A. Lakers
  • Howard Schultz, Chairman of Starbucks Coffee Company

 OUR OBJECTIVE

The National Sports Forum is overseen by a diverse Steering Committee of team, league, and industry leaders - peers that share a universal interest in meeting and learning from one another. Like you, they realize that good ideas can't occur "in a vacuum" - executives need to be able to get together with one another to discuss new ideas, new strategies, and new ways in which to keep their sponsors, ticket buyers, suite holders, broadcast partners, and others involved. With increasing competition, rising costs, and tighter margins - teams and events are challenged to not only survive … but thrive! As anyone who's attended our previous 20 Conference & Trade Shows can attest, the National Sports Forum is THE conference that gives you the edge!
