SFIA Industry Leaders Summit
Industry Leaders Summit Highlights
What did you miss in 2013 and 2014? Active networking, exclusive content, and influential speakers


SFIA is building on the success of the past two Industry Leaders Summits while elevating this year’s event to new levels of excellence. Starting with sell-out attendance at the inaugural ILS in 2013, the reputation and excitement surrounding the event has continued to grow.

Registration is now open for this can’t-miss industry event – an event that 87 percent of survey respondents rated as a highly valuable experience in 2014. Since 2013 more than 350 C-suite level executives have attended the ILS and found the compact event informative and engaging.

Content and sessions are specifically relevant to sports, fitness, and active lifestyle organizations and their plans for the future. Previous speakers and attendees have included:

  • Ted Leonsis, Chairman & CEO, Monumental Sports & Entertainment
  • Kevin Plank, Founder & CEO, Under Armour
  • Larry Miller, President, Jordan Brand, Nike Inc.
  • Dr. Mark Emmert, President, NCAA
  • Nat Hampson, Head, Sports Brands & Sport Retailers, Facebook

SFIA is looking forward to again offering outstanding content and connections. Confirmed speakers for the 2015 SFIA Industry Leaders Summit already include Matt Laukaitis, senior vice president and general manager, retail U.S., SAP North America; Sarah Robb O’Hagan, president, Equinox; Ronald Stoupa, chief marketing officer and executive vice president, Sports Authority; and Jim Carroll, futurist, trends, and innovation expert

This year’s event continues to feature active network opportunities in a historic location and dynamic city. 2015 SFIA ILS Registration is open, with early bird savings available until June 15.
