Social Media Reactions From ’18 CAA World Congress Of Sports

Several individuals within the sports industry weighed in on social media during Day 1 of the ’18 CAA World Congress of Sports. Univ. of Illinois AD Josh Whitman tweeted, "Proud to see two fellow #ILLINI alumni, Shad and Tony Khan, on the big stage at the World Congress of Sports in Los Angeles. Amazing journey and incredible partnership between father and son, with far-reaching impact on sports." Learfield's Jack Patterson: "Cool the see @TonyKhan speak at #sbjwcs speak. Had heard he was super smart...it’s true. Enjoying hearing him speak about his role at @FulhamFC. Also his Dad Shahid is awesome too!" He added, "Good point by @CJonesAnderson from the @dallascowboys as she points out 7% of their fans attend a game. Even MORE reason you need to target fans on digital and social." AT&T's Denise Ebright: "Trolli beards+kicks, #BEASTMODE drawers. Thanks @72andSunny #SBJWCS #CreativePeopleWhoDoSport." Former Chip Ganassi Racing President Steve Lauletta: "Kudos to @caa_sports and @sbjsbd for featuring the #TimesUp movement at #sbjwcs such an important conversation for all industries...well done." NASCAR's Evan Parker: "Impressive- @bumble head of brand Alex Williamson says they routinely execute large-scale campaigns that go from inception to launch in just a few hours... Probably helps to be nimble in a world as fickle as dating." Harvard Group International's Chuck Cain: "Disruption & Innovation. Creativity. Diversity & Inclusion. 3 pillars of the discussion today at World Congress. Looking fwd to hearing and meeting great people."
