We’ve all been guilty of being fixated to our televisions this past week watching the Winter Olympics unfold. While you probably realized your secret lifelong dreams of becoming a gold medal winning figure skater, curler, or skier might not come true, perhaps you’ve uncovered your real life calling- sports marketing/PR.
At PRAdvanced this Saturday, hear from Founder/President of Activate Sports & Entertainment, Jim Delaney. A 20+ year veteran of the pro sports and arena industry, Delaney has previously handled the marketing and public relations for TD Garden, the FleetCenter, and seven seasons with the NBA’s Washington Wizards. His impressive track record also includes countless awards such as winner of the Social Media Icon Award, the National GIGI Award, and inductee of the Event & Arena Marketing Hall of Fame.
Also speaking at the Sports Marketing panel is Patrick Nelson, Marketing and Promotions Assistant with the Boston Bruins Game Night Staff. Nelson is responsible for acting as a goodwill ambassador during all home games and assisting the Marketing, Boston Bruins Foundation and Community Relations Departments in enriching the fan experience, as well as executing community events.
There’s no better time to get in the game and prepare for the fast-paced world of sports marketing/PR. You just might discover that you can fuel the future of sports from the sideline.
