The Olin Business School is pleased to welcome you to the 2015 Olin Sports Business Summit, our kickoff event ahead of the 2015-16 Joseph S. Lacob Business of Sports Speaker Series.

First and foremost, we would like to thank all those who have contributed their time and resources to the Sports Business Program.  We especially thank Joe Lacob for his generous financial gift in support of events like the 2015 Summit.

We have a fabulous array of speakers from across the sports business industry who will be sharing their insights on Friday, September 25th in Emerson Auditorium within Knight Hall.  Industry executives from professional and collegiate sports, as well as experts from the sport financing, media, and marketing worlds, will enrich our understanding of the ever-evolving changes within the sports business industry.  

Our panelists will touch upon topics spanning facility financing, athlete endorsements, corporate sponsorships, ticketing and business strategies, leadership and player personnel decision-making, and recent business developments in collegiate athletics.

Thank you for your interest in the 2015 Olin Sports Business Summit.  Game on!


NOTE:  The seating capacity within Emerson Auditorium is limited to 290.  Thus, the first 290 people who registered for the event will be assured a seat.  Anyone who registers after the 290th registrant will still be able to watch the event, but will likely have to view the event from Frick Forum located just outside Emerson Auditorium.
