Zoom Meeting


 Directions

The rapidly-evolving world of sports isn’t just about competing on the field – it takes a team of communicators behind the scenes to keep fans engaged, informed and invested at all levels. Just as sports can change in a moment’s notice, so can business communications (thanks, COVID-19).

Join IABC Houston for a (virtual) fireside chat on Thursday, Nov. 19, to learn how sports broadcasters and comms professionals are rapidly evolving their game to compete for eyeballs, pivot on a moment’s notice, and how you can you set yourself apart and thrive in the ever-evolving digital era heading into 2021.
