LOS ANGELES, Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The TEAMS '15 Conference & Expo—the world's leading gathering for the sports-event industry—concluded on Thursday, November 12, in Las Vegas. Presented by SportsTravel magazine and hosted by the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority, the TEAMS '15 Conference & Expo was held November 9–12 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. TEAMS '15 featured a robust educational program with presentations from more than 60 leaders of the sports-event industry and a record-setting number of opportunities for business networking.
"Everyone who attended TEAMS '15 will agree that the TEAMS Conference & Expo is the most productive conference of the year for the sports-event industry," said Timothy Schneider, president and CEO of Schneider Publishing, which organizes the TEAMS Conference and publishes SportsTravel magazine. "From providing attendees with five tracks of sports-specific programming to increasing the number of hours available for business networking, TEAMS '15 was our best conference yet," said Schneider.
TEAMS '15 began with the TEAMS 11th Annual Golf Tournament, held on Monday, November 9, at TPC Las Vegas. On Tuesday, November 10, the first full day of programming at TEAMS '15 included concurrent sessions led by Olympian and Atlanta Braves executive Mike Plant and USA Rugby CEO Nigel Melville. The opening general session included a welcome to Las Vegas by the showgirls from "Jubilee" at Bally's Las Vegas and a conversation with ESPN's Jessica Mendoza and Fox Sports' Jamie Little, two ascendant female talents in the male-dominated world of sports broadcasting. Tuesday evening, attendees were transported to the iconic Thomas & Mack Center for the SportsTravel Awards Gala. The 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, held in Greensboro, North Carolina, was the biggest award winner, taking home Best Amateur Multi-Sport or Multi-Discipline Event as well as the top honor of Sports Event of the Year.
