2017 Chairman’s Forum

The 2017 Chairman’s Forum will be held from April 21-23 at the Red Rock Resort and Spa in Las Vegas, NV. Each year, the SVG Chairman’s Forum event provides attendees the opportunity to get a jump-start on new technologies that will be on display at the NAB exhibition floor beginning on April 24. More importantly, it is an opportunity to meet with like-minded senior sports production executives in a relaxing environment that includes panel discussions and presentations, ample networking time, all meals, and even a golf outing or spa treatments.
