Conference Overview

CAA and Street & Smith’s Sports Business Journal are teaming up once again to present the 19th Annual CAA World Congress of Sports.

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, to L.A. Clippers Owner and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.
