Sports Entertainment Summit Hits L.A. LIVE on Jan. 18

In the world of 24-hour sports coverage, it has become nearly impossible to separate sports from entertainment, and entertainment from sports. When it comes to production equipment, technique, and philosophy, the two worlds are linked, and SVG’s newest event – the Sports Entertainment Summit – will bring together experts from both industries to share best practices and lessons learned.

On January 18, 2011, professionals from sports, entertainment, and those who have worked in both spheres will take center stage at the L.A. LIVE complex in downtown Los Angeles to discuss the staging, staffing, and production complexities involved in halftime shows, opening and closing ceremonies, taking studio shows on the road, primetime productions, reality TV shows, and more.

Register today to learn:

  • Best practices for pre-game, post-game, and halftime show productions
  • How to more effectively produce and edit compelling “reality” programming
  • The latest trends in set design, lighting, and production of studio shows
  • 3D lessons learned in sports that apply to entertainment, and vice versa

And much, much more!

The SVG Sports Entertainment Summit is co-chaired by SVG members Jeff Jacobs, VP, production planning and strategies, MTV, and Jack Simmons, SVP Production, Fox Sports.
