This is not about breaking into sports. This is for the current sports sales professional looking to improve their acumen and get better. This is a no nonsense, hardcore day of sports sales training, so you can get back on the front office the next morning with a whole new gameplan of selling out the house.
For a small fee, you can be amongst your peers, learning some of the best practices and developing top-level skills from the franchise professionals and sales trainers across every sport. Each will provide time-tested methods to help you improve at your job, accelerating your acumen to move your career ahead in a single day's training course.
This is an exciting opportunity to increase the amount of sales training for your entire franchise sales staff in just one day. Your training budget won't take a massive hit, but you will be able to have your entire staff engage with other sport sales professionals, as well as several of the top speakers and sport sales thought leaders today.
The 2nd Annual Sports Sales Boot Camp, sponsored by Ticket Galaxy, will be June 28, 2016. Held in conjunction with the 26th Annual ALSD Conference & Tradeshow, special hotel rates are available for Sports Sales Boot Camp attendees at the Wyndham Downtown Pittsburgh, PA.
Registration includes full day of training, lunch at the hotel plus a tour followed by a networking reception at PNC Park, home of the Pittsburgh Pirates
"Sport Sales Boot Camp was a great investment of time to cover a wide range of pertinent topics for sales reps and sales managers. As a sales manager, I brought my entire sales team to train for the day. I found great value in the panel of speakers sharing great content in a condensed 30 minute presentation. Gaining insights from some of the best sales trainers and executives in the industry in one day exceeded my expectations"
"The Sports Sales Boot Camp is a must attend for ticketing professionals in the sports industry. Unlike some other conferences, it brings a fast-paced, thought-provoking and interactive approach allowing attendees to get involved in the presentations. It's rare to have the opportunity to be in the same room with the best sports sales leaders, account executives and trainers. I'd definitely recommend attending."
"The Sports Sales Boot Camp was a great experience for my staff. Continued training for young sales people young is essential to their growth and thanks to the Sports Sales Boot Camp, my staff was able to get new ideas on industry best practices from leaders in the sports business."
"The Sports Sales Boot Camp is definitely an aspect of the conference you don't want to miss. It covers more than just 'how to sell'. I found it interesting to see different metrics from teams using different approaches on selling and the returns they found from each approach."
"The Sports Sales Boot Camp was exactly what we had hoped for. My staff and I had the privilege to learn from some of the most innovative minds in the sports industry today. I would recommend the Sports Sales Boot Camp to anyone looking to improve their own athletic department's sales for 2016 and beyond."
"The Sports Sales Boot Camp provided me with extremely useful tools in helping maximize the impact of our new service team. From everything to learning how to manage the ever growing millennial workforce to engaging premium customers to more innovative ways of performing annual renewals."
"Walking in to present at the Sports Sales Boot Camp in San Francisco last year, I expected to see 30-40 tired ticket sales executives. Instead, at 7:30 am, I was presenting in front of 150-200 engaged ticket sales fans. There is no more intense, eclectic or valuable ticket sales day in sports than the Sports Sales Boot Camp. The access to the wide range of trainers, opportunities and information makes it a can't miss day for VPs, Directors, Managers and Reps alike. I can't wait to not only take the stage again in 2016, but also take my seat in the crowd and learn again. If you're coming to ALSD, make it for the Boot Camp. If you're a salesperson anywhere near Pittsburgh, get your boss to send you. Bring your coffee...you're going to #getafterit!"
"Like the athletes we promote, we should take advantage of any chance to hone our craft. 'Rookie' executives need to strengthen their sales and communication muscles while 'veterans' should avoid the flab of complacency and acceptance of professional status quo. In this what-have-you-done-lately industry, new and experienced alike should invest in their skills by attending the Sports Sales Boot Camp in Pittsburgh to keep a leg up on encroaching executive competition."
"I had the pleasure of speaking about Social Selling at the first ever Sport Sales Boot Camp last year at ALSD. It was an amazing experience speaking in front of 300+ sports industry attendees, but afterwards as I decided to stay as a attendee for the rest of the event. I met some incredible sales and service professionals in our industry. I would highly recommend attending and bringing your ticket sales and service team to this conference. Hands down, The Sport Sales Boot Camp is the best value for your team this season!"
