Analytics: Getting to Know Your Fans Down to the Smallest Details

We all know data is king and can be a gold mine if managed correctly. Each day we’re learning more and more about the fans that enter sports and entertainment venues, but, in many ways, we’re only scratching the surface. What is the best method to obtain valuable data; how do you filter through the information; how are you using customized campaigns to target specific fan sub-sets; and what are the most optimal revenue opportunities. Participants will share their thoughts on these and other questions.
