Hi All --
It's been too long since we last met. The Facebook/G+ chat was great, and so was the networking. Let's get together next Wednesday to catch up and hear what I know will be a fascinating discussion on the world of sports and how it will reflect and impact the broader media and business world.
Here's more background:
The subtitle for this event is: 10 things that are happening today in sports that will affect your business tomorrow. Sign up here.
Sports is one of those industries that is always looking for an edge. They've led the way in many of the key internet business models including advertising, video, online retail and many more. I think we can always count on sports as the politically correct industry that will almost always help us see which way the trends are going.
Tom Richardson and Keith Ritter will lead this event. Many of you know Tom and Keith from their highly insightful questions and comments during our many FairCo events. By the end of this event, I suspect you will be asking them even more questions. Their insights into the modern world of marketing are the result of years of creating and managing some of the most popular and influential sports media properties in the world.
