EXPERIENCE THE SPORTS BUSINESS ENTERTAINMENT CONFERENCE 2017

December 1st – 3rd, 2017
Las Vegas
Nevada

This conference is different from any other sports and entertainment conference you’ve attended.

IMMERSIVE INSIGHT. LIMITLESS NETWORKING.

ABOUT

The Sports Business & Entertainment (“SBE”) Conference provides an interactive platform to bring together both former and current athletes and entertainers with business professionals, all interested in discussing opportunities that equate to definable next steps.

Each year of the conference has been a success and produced testimonials from everyone in attendance. We are excited about adding entertainers to our platform for the first time this year.

This conference is exclusive to a select group of athletes, entertainers and businesses. Business leaders can establish relationships with athletes and entertainers that are considered some of the greatest and rising stars in business. The selected business leaders in attendance understand the value of athletes and entertainers being spokespeople and promoters of products. The businesses also respect the talent for their business acumen.

We believe your company will benefit from the unique value in working with current and/or former pro athletes and entertainers. You can submit an application below to attend and/or sponsor one of The SBE Conferences in 2017.

The SBE Conference is hosted by Charles D. Smith, CEO of Lifestyle Service Group. Charles is a former NBA player and Olympian as well as a dynamic leader and educator for business and career transitions. Charles moderates the panels and does an incredible job at pairing athletes, entertainers, and businesses for increased networking that leads to mutually beneficial opportunities at the conference.
