Connect Media is proud to be hosting the inaugural CT Sports Summit at Milford City Hall on Friday, October 4th, 2019!
This exciting event will bring together industry professionals from pro sports teams, college athletic programs, corporate partners, and the media to discuss the foremost ideas in their field and inspire the next generation of aspiring sports professionals. Drawing from the student bodies of fantastic institutions such as Yale, Quinnipiac, UConn, Sacred Heart, Southern Connecticut State, and the University of New Haven, the event will also give undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to get a foot in the door in the ultra-competitive world of sports!
The day begins with a 1-on-1 conversation with Mike Soltys, a University of Connecticut graduate who was ESPN's first-ever intern and is the current Vice President of Public Relations!
A series of panel discussions and guest speakers will follow as leaders from sports organizations across the state, like the Hartford Athletic and Connecticut Sun, share their expertise on topics such as hiring practices, business operations, and evolving their sales and marketing strategy in an ever-changing consumer market.
A light breakfast, catered lunch, and happy hour following the closing address will give everyone a chance to network and sample the local cuisine!
