One year ago, the fear of an emerging pandemic summarily shut down sports, and severely impacted the trillion dollar global sports business. One year later, thanks to vaccine technology and an unprecedented global response, the sports world turns its attention to “The Comeback.”
Foley & Lardner’s Sports & Entertainment Group, along with renowned sports industry author and adviser Rick Horrow, is pleased to invite you to its Leadership Insight series, The Comeback: Sports in a Worldwide Pandemic. Each month, the series will feature lively discussions on the business of sports (as well as impacts on hospitality, real estate, tourism, and other ancillary industries). The series will include rotating panels of high–profile industry executives and experts, who will offer their unique perspectives, predictions for the future, and practical advice for moving forward.
