2022 SVG RSN Summit

SVG’s RSN Summit returned in person to reunite the regional sports industry on June 29-30 at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel. This annual event provided a gathering place for RSN leaders and content creators to network and exchange ideas about the pertinent issues facing the regional sports sector as the business undergoes seismic change on multiple fronts. Today, regional sports networks are being challenged to produce more events and content at lower costs while also navigating new pandemic-era realities and building beyond the linear-distribution model. Attendees were joined by key production, technology, and business leaders in the industry to hear how they are confronting these challenges and opportunities head on.
