More than a Game: The Business of Sports

Professional sports teams are Chicago’s highest profile businesses. While their products are unique, the processes behind producing and marketing them are things every Chicago-area business can learn from. 

All of Chicago’s major pro sports teams are members of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce. The Bears, Wolves and Sky will be among the exhibitors at the trade show portion of The Exchange. The Blackhawks are contributing to The Exchange raffle.

  • Brooks Boyer - White Sox Senior V.P., Sales and Marketing
  • Atul Khosla - Chicago Fire COO
  • Scott Hagel - Chicago Bears Senior V.P., Marketing & Communications
