2018 RSN Summit

The third annual RSN Summit – to be held June 26-27 at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago – is designed to meet the needs of today’s regional sports network leaders and content creators. This Summit provides a gathering place for networking and the exchange of ideas about the pertinent issues facing RSN leaders. With the RSN industry undergoing drastic change in the coming years, networks are being challenged to deliver more events and original content at historically low costs, while also building beyond the linear distribution model and embracing multiplatform content. Join the most important leaders in the industry to hear how they are confronting these challenges and opportunities head on.

SVG will kick off the RSN Summit with a keynote conversation and an opening-night reception on Tuesday, June 26 at the Palmer House Hilton, followed by the full-day event on June 27.
