The Philly Business Journal is holding a “Business of Sports” conference on Thursday, at the Ballroom at the Ben. I’ll be on the sports media panel along with Brian Monihan (President of NBC Sports Philly), Spike Eskin (Program Director at WIP), and Donald Hunt (sportswriter at the Philly Tribune).
Our panel goes off at 10:15, but you might be even more interested in the other guests– Don Smolenski, Lara Price, Shawn Tilger, Dave Buck and Tim McDermott, execs from each of the major sports teams, will be there for the first panel, which gets underway at a crisp 7:45 a.m. There will also be an e-sports panel and a sponsors panel.
Tickets are $76 and you can get them on the Philly Business Journal’s site here.
Here’s the schedule:
7:00am – 7:45am: Breakfast & Networking
7:45am – 8:30am: Panel 1 – The Teams
8:30am – 9:15am: Panel 2 – eSports
