Sports Marketing 2.0 VIP Summit - Chicago
Thursday, June 12, 2008 from 1:00 PM to 8:00 PM (CDT)
What is this Summit all about?
Sports Marketing 2.0 VIP Summit is and educational event designed to help sports marketers learn best practices for the present and future of online sports marketing.
We need to think BEYOND THE STADIUM
Web 2.0 has changed the very nature of the online experience for sports fans, media and sponsors alike. Fans are not just fans anymore. And players are not just players. They are also journalists, community members and consumers and some have become powerful centers of influence. Turning over control to fans runs counter to traditional marketing thinking, but it could be the biggest opportunity in our business today. Success in this new environment will not come automatically. We have a lot to learn, and that’s where the VIP Summit comes
The Sports Marketing 2.0 VIP Summit is designed to help marketers do what fans are already doing...
Building collective intelligence by cooperating openly and harnessing network effects.

How Summits work
Summits are tightly-packed, half-day events. You will leave smarter and better connected than when you arrived. We do panel discussions from 1pm to 5pm followed by a cocktail reception and sit-down dinner. Each portion of the program is designed to educate and help attendees build relationships with fellow practitioners. There is no selling. Just teaching and learning. As always attendees will be encouraged to share their best practices and case studies through our online community site www.sportsmarketing20.com before, during and after the summits.
