Team Sports Shows All Going Virtual This Fall
In a not-unexpected series of decisions in light of COVID-19 mandated restrictions on travel and large gatherings, the two major team sports buying groups, along with BSN Sports, are all going virtual with their late-2020 meetings.
Sports Inc. made the decision over the summer to go virtual again with its November Team Sports Buying Show, held annually the weekend before Thanksgiving in Las Vegas. The buying group hopes to hold its Outdoor Show in Phoenix in February and then its Team Buying Show in San Antonio, TX, in June.
Nation’s Best Sports (NBS), is going “Virtually Live” for its 2020 Fall Athletic Market from November 9-13. The “show” will take place on its new NBS Virtually Live! Platform.
Meanwhile, hard hit by season cancellations, BSN, which last year brought more than 1000 sales pros into Indianapolis, IN, for a high-tech, ambitious sales meeting, will be held virtually this year as well.
