Beyond Sport United: Exploring the Needs, Challenges & Best Practices of Teams, Leagues & Brands (open to all House pass holders) 9:00am - 3:00pm
More and more frequently, global challenges are being solved through local solutions. Despite a more connected world, large-scale organizations are having to understand how to engage specific communities and relate to their unique sense of identity. It’s becoming crucial to tailor global approaches to local cultures, needs and challenges.

At our annual event – backed by our Founding Supporters, MLB, MLS, NBA, NFL, NHL and the WNBA – teams, brands, federations, governing bodies and agencies will take over the House to explore how the sport industry can create localized shared-value initiatives, and how that in turn will help them achieve greater business and societal impact.
