    Vinik’s ambitious plans find traction in Tampa

    Published January 26, 2015

    Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik’s big vision for downtown Tampa is worth following. The former hedge fund manager has quietly become one of the most effective owners in sports, slowly putting his stamp on the team and Amalie Arena. Now comes his power play: investing $1 billion to develop the city’s downtown waterfront, uniting more than 40 acres of continuous land around the arena. The plan includes an entertainment complex, retail, residences,...

    Published January 26, 2015

    Congratulations to Beijing and Almaty (Kazakhstan) for submitting their candidature files and reaching the final round of bidding for the 2022 Olympic Winter Games.

    Recognize value women bring to sport industry

    Published January 26, 2015

    Recently, a SportsBusiness Journal article (Dec. 8-14 issue) identified the top 50 most influential people in sport business for the year 2014. In this list, four women were included. Why does this matter? For one, a figure of as low as 8 percent illuminates the lack of awareness regarding the influence and impact women have in sport business. My initial question to the editor was, Were there any women on the panel that voted on the list? This is one of the most simple and obvious strategies ...

    Published January 19, 2015

    The selection of Boston as a bid city — and the improved chance of its success in being chosen as the host city — for the 2024 Summer Olympic Games creates unique opportunities for current and potential sponsors.

    A CEO’s marching orders for his sponsorship executives

    Published January 19, 2015

    Dear sports marketer, First, understand my world. I am in charge of an entire enterprise, and marketing typically makes up about 10 percent of my entire expense budget. Sponsorships typically make up 10 percent of that 10 percent budget — or 1 percent of my entire budget.

    Published January 12, 2015

    On a cold December evening in 1963, Paul Godfrey was ebullient. He had just been elected as Toronto city alderman and was ready to meet the media when his mother tugged at him. “Here I was, so excited at 25, the youngest guy elected in the community and the media were waiting for me. But she insisted on taking a walk up the block on this cold night,” he tells me on a dark, dreary Toronto afternoon. “She said, ‘I’m going to give you two pieces of ...

    Loyalty lessons: Reward, don’t exploit, best customers

    Published January 12, 2015

    The inspiration for this column comes from a personal experience unrelated to sports and entertainment. But the experience not only carries a lesson for sports and entertainment, but also could potentially affect market forces and opportunities that lead to courses of action that leaders consider every day before making a decision. I have many brand preferences, but only a few brand loyalties. I enjoy both Marriott and Hilton properties and am happy...
