Conference Overview

Viva Las Vegas

Las Vegas is quickly becoming an epicenter for sports and that is why SBJ in conjunction with our partner, AXS, is thrilled to be bringing the 2020 Sports Facilities & Franchises conference and Ticketing Symposium to Las Vegas.

Re-establishing Business

will be the pillar we build the content around to provide attendees with new insights and ideas as we examine this new era of sports business. Guests will also have an opportunity to attend a variety of networking activities in and around Vegas, including a venue tour of the new Allegiant Stadium.


 Who Attends:
The three-day program is a must attend for anyone in ticketing or franchise and facility management. Through venue tours and in-depth discussions on stage, the conference covers the gamut of hot topics, ranging from increasing incremental revenue, to the latest in ticketing and venue technology, to managing changing fan demographics, to best practices in ticket sales, and in-stadium fan engagement.

Both events are designed for team presidents, CEOs and other C-level executives (CFO, COO, CIO, CMO), as well as vice presidents and directors of key functional areas: facility operations and management, ticketing, premium seating, corporate sales and marketing.
