Live sports has emerged as a major source of \"DVR proof\" content for brands to engage creatively with teams, leagues and fans. In-venue technology upgrades, 2nd screen experiences and social media platforms are but a few of the enablers for such engagement. Our panel of senior executives will examine the “state of the industry” across a number of perspectives.
- Why do brands love live sports?
- How do brands, the media outlets, and the teams create authentic integrations?
- How is the 2nd screen creating incremental opportunities for brands and media?
- What role will social media play in this engagement?
