Miller Kaplan Arase Team Attends Variety & Sports Illustrated's Sports & Entertainment Summit

In our commitment to staying current on emerging trends within the Sports and Entertainment industry, the Miller Kaplan Arase team attended Variety & Sports Illustrated’s Sports & Entertainment Summit.

The Summit was held at the Vibiana in Los Angeles with keynote speakers Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Luc Robitaille, and Lisa Joseph Metelus. The Los Angeles Rams were well represented at the event, with special appearances by team owner Stan Kroenke, general manager Kevin Demoff, and head coach Jeff Fisher.

The one-day summit explored the intersection between sports media and entertainment, the state of live sports coverage, the future of in-stadium/arena entertainment, sports marketing, and engaging millennial sports fans, to name a few.

“Bringing together the visionaries and leading influencers within the global and sports and entertainment industries for unfiltered conversation represents the very best of Sports Illustrated and Variety,” said Sports Illustrated editorial director, Chris Stone. “Take a look at the roster of panelists – it’s a murderer’s row – and you’ll see an event that’s certain to set the sports conversation going forward.”
