2019 Seattle Sports Marketing Conference & Career Fair
The Seattle Sports Marketing Conference & Career Fair will be held Sept. 30-Oct. 1, 2019 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle. The second annual conference will bring forward some of the top leaders in the sports industry, provide educational opportunities for university students, and career opportunities for those looking to break into the sports world. Our mission statement is to democratize sports business as a content-driven conference by thought leaders seeking to redefine the industry. NOTE: In 2018, we had 54 speakers, 50 sessions and sold out our conference & single day passes prior to the show. Check back continuously to see our updated schedule and speaker list - starting in Feb. 2019, we should have our first tentative list of content and speakers announced. The Seattle Sports Marketing Conference will have several educational tracks with some of the top speakers in the sports & entertainment industry. Those tracks include: - Breaking/Working In Sports - Sports Media/PR/Journalism - eSports - Sports Law - Sports Sustainability/Social Responsibility - Sports Technology/Analytics - Sports Marketing/Promotions - Sports Sponsorship - Sports Sales Training - Sports Apparel - Sports Venues & more tracks to come. The 2019 Career Fair will have a "speed dating" career fair with hiring managers from professional teams/organizations around the country. It is an additional fee and participants will have 5-8 minutes per hiring manager to give their personal elevator pitch, answer interview questions, and hand over their resume for a chance to break into the sports industry. We actively seek sports employers with jobs to sit on these engagement sessions. Conference Book Author & Autograph Program, will provide attendees with access to select sports author readings, engage with the authors afterward as well as the ability to get their books signed at the conference. We've set it up so that you can order their books ahead of the conference, and have them delivered to the conference site, to ease the issue of leaving a book home that you wanted to get signed. Networking Night provides the ability for young professionals to gain extra time with each other in a casual setting. The actual location(s) are TBA until we get a final head count but will be within the city limits of Seattle. 1-on-1 Mentoring Sessions are set up between students and selected sports business professionals in advance of the conference. This is not just a resume a review. This is about seeking out ways to improve at the sports marketing conference and maximize the results when getting to conference. Mentor's Lunch is new for 2019 are set up between students and selected sports business professionals in a round table discussion - sharing a meal together (which is included with the ticket price). You want to pick the brain of a professional, this is your opportunity to do so. FAQs Can you explain your ticket pricing policy? We operate on a "you snooze, you lose" policy of ticket pricing, which is broken down for someone to buy a one day pass on either Sept. 30 or Oct. 1, or they can purchase the full conference pass for both dates. There are only a certain amount of tickets per price level, which means that once those tickets are gone, the next price available may be higher. Single day passes start at $10, a conference pass starts at $15, and they go up incrementally based on purchased demand. NOTE: It is wise to purchase your tickets early as the price will not go down or remain static once ticket inventory is all go for a specific price level. This includes add-on items such as the career fair and once inventory for networking nights, autograph alley, etc are gone, they are gone for good. Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? There is no minimum age, however, it is best recommended that below the age of 16, the options for sports career employment will be minimal to start. What are my transportation/parking options for
