Big Data & Sports Business
SeatGeek + General Assembly
Wednesday, June 27th from 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
New techniques and methods that harness data to make more intelligent business decisions have transformed all sorts of industries -- including professional sports!
Join us on Wednesday evening for a wide ranging discussion on how technology and analytics are helping the businesses behind the X's and O's become smarter, leaner and more responsive.
How are sports franchises using data to make better decisions in ticketing, sponsorship and sales? What teams and leagues are most innovative in their use of technology and data? What are the startups to keep an eye on in the sports space -- and what are the biggest opportunities out there for tech entrepreneurs to transform the sports industry?
These topics and more will be discussed in what should be a fun and wide ranging discussion with experts drawn from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences in sports business.
