The business of sports in Atlanta has many facets, including technology, marketing, licensing, recruiting and more. Key ‘players’ from multiple aspects of the sports landscape come together to discuss the different elements and how they work together.
Attendees will learn how professional and collegiate sports in Atlanta operate behind the scenes as well as unique ways teams are dialing up the fun for fans. Advancements in ticketing technology, such as season ticket models and subscription tickets will also be discussed, including best practices and successes to date.
