But now he is at Facebook and, most importantly, at the center of the social media platform’s sports-related developments. Learn how Facebook is looking to unlock sponsorship opportunities; drive ticket, merchandise, and subscription sales; as well as its efforts around live rights and much more.

In 2019, the SVG Summit marks its 14th year as the place to be for those involved in any aspect of sports production, content creation, or distribution. Once again it will bring together more than 1,000 industry professionals from across the country and around the world for two full days of networking, panel discussions, and more!
