August SportsBiz Networking Event

I’m happy to announce that we’ve scheduled our next The Business Of Sports – New York Networking event! It is taking place on Wednesday, August 18 from 6:30 to 9:30PM at Slattery’s Midtown Pub (8 East 36th St). As always, the event is completely free to attend.  You can click here to complete the RSVP form.

Here is what some previous attendees had to say about our events:`

  • From @Isatten – “Every event has high-caliber representation from across the sports industry. I always walkaway having made new, meaningful connections.”
  • From @gosam – “Russell’s events provide the best opportunity for NYC sports industry professionals to step away from the computer & network face-to-face.”
  • From @JCingari – “The events are a great way to connect with people from all sides of the sports business industry. The best part: the ‘no resumes’ rule.”
  • From @CMarzi84 – “SportsBiz NYC events – definitely worth checking out, fun event full of sports pros from great organizations.”
  • From @SponsorPitch – “Great way to network with other sports biz pros in a relaxed atmosphere. I always come away with at least one new connection.”
  • From @peteraiello – “An NYC Sportsbiz Networking Event is THE place to go to make real sports industry contacts.”

Please pass this along to any friends and colleagues who would also be interested in attending. Each event has been bigger and more successful than the last, and we want to keep it going!

In addition, we are always looking for opportunities to launch networking events in new areas. Below you will find a list of spots that we’re either working on, or hope to get to soon. If you see a city near you and you can assist with local event logistics, please leave a comment:

  • Phoenix – Working on the details for our 2nd event
  • Atlanta – Hope to have a 4th event announced soon
  • Philadelphia – Had one there before, but need some local help
  • Boston – Also had one there before, but need some local help
  • Charlotte – Wishlist city, looking for volunteers
  • Los Angeles –  Wishlist city, looking for volunteers
  • San Francisco/Northern CA – Wishlist city, looking for volunteers
  • Miami – Wishlist city, looking for volunteers
  • Chicago – Wishlist city, looking for volunteers (also check out the Painless Networking group here)

Thanks for your support and I’m looking forward to seeing many of you in New York on the 18th!

(Special thanks to Joshua Duboff from The Sports Business Exchange. These events wouldn’t happen without all of his hard work.)
