Four years ago, the two of us attended the same small high school in Los Angeles, living only five minutes apart, but somehow hardly ever interacted. It wasn’t until we came to the University of Michigan and joined the Michigan Sport Business Conference that our paths finally crossed. Today, we are thrilled to be in the position of leading a remarkable group of students in the effort to continue the great tradition of past leadership teams, and push the conference to new heights.
In the past five years, the MSBC has progressed to become one the most reputable sport business conferences in the country, consistently pushing the envelope and creating a platform for dynamic and thought-provoking discussion between students and industry leaders. We have tasked our team with upholding the level of professionalism and execution that has been evident in previous years, while creatively finding new ways to enhance the attendee experience and grow the MSBC brand. We are constantly exploring new outlets of innovation, discovering opportunities to make the conference more interactive, and selecting a diverse and esteemed group of speakers that continue to define the sport business narrative.
With this year’s conference falling on the Michigan vs. Michigan State football weekend, we welcome all students, alumni and industry professionals to join us in Ann Arbor for a weekend of engaging discussion, intimate networking opportunities and Michigan football. As we build off the momentum from the previous five years, the two of us could not be more excited to continue the planning process and help make the sixth annual MSBC the best one yet.
Thank you, and Go Blue!
