Story Highlights

It's been two years since the sports production community has come together in New York City for the SVG Summit. That's one of the reasons the general sessions on Dec. 14 are designed to provide a wide-ranging overview of the entire sports production ecosystem, from leagues, to digital leaders, to production service providers, national networks, regional networks, and more.

It's important to give leaders from across the industry a chance to help us reset on where they are at with respect to technology decisions, business decisions, staffing challenges, and of course innovation, says Ken Kerschbaumer, SVG, co-executive director, editorial services. We're excited to have a chance to do just that on Dec. 14 in the Trianon Ballroom at the New York Hilton Hotel.
