sports industry TreK
January 10, 2020
Join us for our January 2020 Sports Industry Trek! Our New York City day trip will be led by our HireEdge Guide Laura Fortner and run from 9:45 am through 3:00 pm.
Our first stop will be sports & entertainment marketing agency CSM to learn about the services they provide and look at the sports-related client work they have done. We’ll also hear about the company overall, including different roles within the organization and how careers are launched through their internship program.
From there, we will walk a few blocks to the world headquarters of the Drone Racing League, a sports and media company combining world-class pilots, iconic locations, and proprietary technology to create engaging drone racing content with mass appeal. DRL Season 4 is under way and races can be viewed in the US on NBC Sports and Twitter. To date, DRL races have been watched by over 55 million fans in over 75 countries. Students will get to hear firsthand about the launch and growth of this popular new sport and personally get to experience what it's like to navigate a FPV (First Person View) drone.
Our final stop will be a guided tour of Madison Square Garden for a behind-the-scenes look at the “The World’s Most Famous Arena” and official sports venue for MSG-owned franchises including the New York Knicks and New York Rangers. MSG also hosts world class sporting events such as professional boxing, college basketball, professional bull riding, mixed martial arts, and tennis. Following our tour, our group will have a private educational session with a Marketing executive from MSG for a special Q&A with our students.
