Join Us for SportsTech Atlanta, May 28 to Advance Your Career
The Sports Video Group is pleased to announce that SportsTech Atlanta will be held on the afternoon of May 28 at the Hyatt Hotel in Atlanta. Co-located with the 2014 College Sports Summit, the event will give sports production professionals from the Atlanta area and beyond a chance to get together for three informative panel discussions, networking, and a closing reception held among more than 30 exhibits from the sports production industry’s most important manufacturers and service providers. Chris Brown, Turner Sports, Director of Technical Operations, will serve as Chairman for the event.
“Atlanta and the Southeast region of the U.S. is home to organizations that have staked a leadership position in the sports TV landscape and bringing them together for a half-day event is a great way to help them learn about the latest industry trends and discuss market-specific challenges and opportunities,” says Ken Kerschbaumer, SVG, Executive Director, Editorial Services. “SVG’s mission is to advance sports content creation and distribution and there is no better way to do that than to increasingly bring the industry together in key geographical regions.”
The event is free to all SVG sponsors and members and all who are interested in attending are asked to register here.
Here is the complete schedule:
