What Sponsors, Fans, and Properties Want: An interactive panel answering your most pressing industry questions

Presented June 25th, 2020

On June 25th, we gathered international thought-leaders, decision-makers, and sponsorship pros for three back-to-back discussions answering the age-old questions of our industry: “What do Sponsors and Consumers Want?” “What do Fans Want?” and “What do Properties Want?”

But that was just to guide the discussion; the actual questions our experts answered were submitted by you. By dropping questions in the webinar Q&A, our moderator, Mark Harrison, selected relevant and unique questions to share with our panelists.
