Ivy Sports Symposium
The Ivy Sports Symposium
is one of the global sports industry’s premier conferences that rotates being
held among Ivy League institutions. The Symposium provides a forum for interaction and debate
between college students and professionals, and enables the industry’s leaders and most successful
executives to share invaluable knowledge with their peers and potential successors. Established in 2006 by Chris Chaney at Princeton University, the Ivy Sports Symposium sets the standard for college-based sports business conferences. The intimate setting combined with engaging content
and dynamic speakers makes it a “must attend” event every year.
