2017 Chairman’s Forum
THE PERFECT KICKOFF TO NAB!


The 2017 Chairman’s Forum was held from April 21-23 at the Red Rock Resort and Spa in Las Vegas, NV. The SVG Chairman’s Forum event provided attendees the opportunity to get a jump-start on new technologies that were on display at the NAB exhibition floor. More importantly, it was an opportunity for attendees to meet with like-minded senior sports production executives in a relaxing environment that included panel discussions and presentations, ample networking time, all meals, and a golf outing or spa treatment.
