Examining the Business of College Sports

Conference Overview

The 11th annual IMG Intercollegiate Athletics Forum is the one program that year-in and year-out serves as a platform for stakeholders to openly examine and candidly debate the numerous and complex issues surrounding college sports.

A "must attend" event since 2002 for anyone involved in the business of college sports, the IMG Intercollegiate Athletics Forum provides an "insiders view" by offering firsthand insights from those directly shaping the future of intercollegiate athletics -- athletic directors, university presidents, conference commissioners, coaches, academic advisers, media and corporate sponsors.

Through a series of in-depth case studies, roundtable discussions and featured interviews, the program explores the growth areas and emerging trends in intercollegiate athletics, while continuing the "how-to" dialogue for managing the day-to-day business of college sports.

In addition to the conference content, attendees will have ample opportunity to network with industry peers. Attending the Intercollegiate Athletics Forum will surely be an educational event and one that you will want to put on your calendar year after year!

“I have attended several times and have enjoyed participating. A great deal of business and networking happens around the Forum.”

"The Intercollegiate Athletics Forum is an important annual event for our industry. The narrow focus on intercollegiate athletics, the topical nature of the Forum’s agenda and the quality of the speakers and attendees combine to make the Forum a uniquely valuable annual gathering."

“The Intercollegiate Athletics Forum is time well spent. The tremendous slate of industry leaders from the entire spectrum of the athletics arena was the best I have experienced and covered the most relevant issues we are all dealing with today. I regret not including my senior staff in this event this year."
