What others are saying...

"It was an honor to attend the 2022 Sports ETA Chief Executive Summit and present during one of the main sessions. The event attracted a high caliber of top performers and decision-makers in the industry. The content shared was fresh, timely and highly relevant. And the networking opportunities were exceptional. The CE Summit is a must-attend for those looking to lead, grow or evolve in sports and event tourism." Brad Dean, Chief Executive Officer, Discover Puerto Rico

"The CE Summit is easily my favorite educational event of the year. I always look forward to it. The combination of professional development and networking with old and new friends and industry peers is tough to beat. Sports ETA does a fantastic job putting together the agenda. It’s condensed, concise and on-point, so you can be in and out of town pretty efficiently while still getting a lot out of it. It’s well-thought-out and just an all-around excellent meeting."
Scott Dupree, Executive Director, Greater Raleigh Sports Alliance

“The CE Summit delivered relevant presenters and content addressing important issues and opportunities in our industry.  It provided the opportunity to get peer perspectives, share our collective experiences and best practices around each issue and opportunity.  Best of all, you get to broaden, deepen and personalize your professional network.” Jim Etzel, CEO, Sport Oregon
