7TH Annual Ivy Sports Symposium to be held on November 16, 2012
16 août 2012
The 7th edition of the Ivy Sports Symposium, one of our Academic Partners, will be held at Columbia University (New York) on November 16, 2012.
The Ivy Sports Symposium is one of the global sports industry’s premier conferences that rotates being held among Ivy League institutions. The Symposium provides a forum for interaction and debate between college students and professionals, and enables the industry’s leaders and most successful executives to share invaluable knowledge with their peers and potential successors.
Chris Chaney, Founder and Executive Director of the Ivy Sports Symposium, participated in the 2012 edition of the Global Sports Forum Barcelona last March.
“The Global Sports Forum Barcelona was a wonderful experience and great setting,” said Chaney. “I was amazed at the quality of the event and the breadth of the speakers from all around the world who were representing many facets of the industry. I commend the superb job by the Havas team and am excited to see the Ivy Sports Symposium’s partnership with the GSFB further develop this year. We have yet to touch the surface of all the opportunities we can explore and realize together.”
The partnership between the Ivy Sports Symposium and the Global Sports Forum is integral to fostering cross-cultural exchange, collaboration and communication among students and sports business professionals in Europe and North America. Both forums are a unique opportunity to highlight the future leaders and key stakeholders who will run the sporting world in years to come. Last year, the Ivy Sports Symposium launched the 10 NEXT Awards in partnership with SportsPro to recognize ten promising sports executives under the age of 30, which perfectly fits with the ‘What’s next’ philosophy of the Global Sports Forum. Nominations for the 2012 10 NEXT Awards opened on August 6. For more information on the 10 NEXT Awards please visit www.sportspromedia.com.

About the Ivy Sports Symposium
Established in 2006 by Chris Chaney at Princeton University, the Ivy Sports Symposium sets the standard for college-based sports business conferences. The intimate setting combined with engaging content and dynamic speakers makes it a “must attend” event every year. In 2011, the Symposium established two initiatives furthering its commitment to the development and promotion of young leaders in the industry.
The Ivy Sports Symposium Fellowship Program provides motivated college students with the unique opportunity to actively contribute to the continued success of the Symposium organization. Fellows work directly with the Executive Director to define, articulate and execute strategies aimed at achieving the organization’s vision.
In addition, the Symposium has partnered with SportsPro to launch 10 NEXT, an annual award honoring the future generation of sports industry leaders from around the world who will shape the business in the coming decades. Each year, the 10 NEXT awards recognize a distinct group of ten sports executives under the age of 30 that have achieved an exceptional level of success that is truly rare at such a young age.
