About the Sport Sales Workshop

Watch this video for a glimpse.

"This was the best run conference of its type that I have ever attended. Every detail was covered with precision and enthusiasm. Your conference is terrific!" - Jon Spoelstra, sport marketing executive, author of five books, including “Ice to the Eskimos” and “Marketing Outrageously”, one of the most innovative and successful sports marketers, and previous Sport Sales Workshop Keynote Speaker.

  • Workshop participants are eligible to participate in the Sport Sales Workshop Job Fair.
  • Pre-scheduled interviews with more than two dozen professional teams for full-time, part-time and seasonal positions.
  • More than half of Workshop graduating seniors have received job offers at the Sport Sales Workshop and Job Fair.

Not your typical job fair

Pre-scheduled interviews

  • Representatives from a number of professional sport organizations will be conducting interviews on site  for entry level ticket sales positions, which are scheduled in advance and are limited to Workshop participants.  
  • More than 50% of last year's graduating attendees received job offers at the Sport Sales Workshop and Job Fair!

Who should attend?

The Sport Sales Workshop and Job Fair space is limited, and those who attend should be:

  • Recent and soon-to-be graduates looking to work in sport sales
  • Underclassmen looking for seasonal internships
  • Current college students interested in learning more about careers in sport sales


  • Begin the day with an overview of ticket sales and the variety of ticket inventory sold in sports from single game to partial plans, groups, season tickets, club seats, suites, event packages, etc.
  • The remainder of the day will be devoted to working with/training students on sales techniques.
  • Leave not just with information, but with actual skill development, making it more of a workshop format than traditional conference.
