In exactly a month from yesterday, I will be wearing a suit to cover my frozen body as I enter the gates of the beautiful Princeton University. What started off in 2007 as a half-day symposium at Robertson Hall, the annual Princeton Sports Symposium has grown into a behemoth in the sports industry. Known as one of the top sports-related symposiums in the country, the Princeton Sports Symposium has turned into an all-day affair, with so many excellent individuals in attendance, that the organizers often have to host more than one panel at the same time (obviously in different locations).
Last year, I had the opportunity to attend the 2008 Princeton Sports Symposium as a general attendee. I covered the event prior to attending and then wrote a short wrap-up. Overall, I was extremely impressed with the event, and came home with many ideas concerning how to improve our own symposium hosted at the University of Florida Levin College of Law.
This year, I have the honor of actually participating on one of the 2009 Princeton Sports Symposium panels. It is actually one of the first panels of the day, titled, “Partnership Activation Rising Stars.” The entire agenda may be viewed here. As was the case last year, Leverage Agency is the title sponsor of the event. I cannot wait to see many of the people that I was introduced to last year, and meet plenty of new faces. The important facts are as follows:
When: Friday, December 4, 2009 (starts at 9:00 a.m. with Continental Breakfast)
Where: Friend Center, Princeton University (pictured to the right, map)
As a side note, I asked my girlfriend to date me a day before I left for last year’s symposium. We are still together to this day. Unfortunately, I will miss our actual one-year anniversary, but I will make it up to her (as if any of you care about that).
