CAA and SportsBusiness Journal/Daily Gearing Up for the 2018 World Congress of Sports; All Eyes are on L.A. Live

CAA and Street & Smith’s SportsBusiness Journal/Daily are once again teaming up to present the 17th Annual World Congress of Sports. The 2018 CAA World Congress of Sports will be taking place April 17-18 at the J.W. Marriott Los Angeles, L.A. LIVE.

“We’re extremely excited to be partnering with CAA for the 2017 Congress,” comments Richard Weiss, Publisher, SportsBusiness Journal/Daily. “Last year we tried to create a different experience for attendees in terms of session formats, staging and the program flow. And we plan to build on that for 2018. “

The Congress was launched in 2002 and is the largest and most prestigious sports business conference in North America. However, the program speakers and content often transcend sports. In recent years, the speaker faculty has featured individuals ranging from Disney Chairman & CEO Bob Iger, to former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, to LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner.
