Networking with the Cleveland Indians

I was recently invited to speak at Tribe Social Forum hosted by Major League Baseball’s Cleveland Indians on September 16th, 2010. It is an event focused on the increasing trend of social media usage in our society and networking with some of the finest folks in sports today.

Back when we did the Sports Business Survey, participants voiced that they wanted more networking opportunities and I believe this is a great chance to network with experts in the business. Attendees will learn how social media is changing the way we communicate, especially in the sports world.

I am humbled and excited to be part of a panel that includes some of the biggest movers and shakers in sports and social media, including:

  • Mark Shapiro, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Cleveland Indians
  • Anthony Castrovince, MLB.com Beat Writer
  • Dominic Litten, Social Media Club Founder, Cleveland and Leader of Interactive Marketing at Point to Point, Inc.
  • Lisa Zone, President of the American Advertising Federation, Cleveland and SVP at Dix & Eaton.

Besides the panel, there will also be a buffet, drinks and a baseball game to top it all off. We will be watching the Indians play the Anaheim Angels from the beautiful Indians’ Champion Suite!

Aside from the fact that I will be speaking there, I think this is a great move by the MLB and the Cleveland Indians to embrace social media. Late last year, Sam Taggart gave the MLB a mediocre grade on it’s use of social media. I believe that hosting more events like this will not only be beneficial to the Indians, but to the MLB and the sport of baseball as well.

If you’re in the area, I hope you’ll consider coming to the event. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased here.

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you there!
