2014 Sports Industry Conference

The University of Toronto Sports and Business Association in collaboration with the Rotman Sports Business Club would like to invite you to our 3rd Annual Sports Industry Conference! Sports business is a multi-billion dollar industry that has seen tremendous growth over recent years. Harnessing that growth increasingly requires teams, leagues, and sports-related organizations to push beyond traditional approaches to more data-driven, analytical methods. The 2014 Sports Industry Conference, will provide a discussion of a number of areas within the sports business landscape that are being reshaped by this powerful shift.

Speakers and recruiters from Bloomberg Sports, MLSE, The Toronto Raptors, Detroit Pistons, Boston Celtics, The Toronto Maple Leafs, TSN, Twitter Canada, Nike Canada, UFC, Rotman School of Management, NFL and CMA Ontario will be present so you do not want to miss this opportunity!
