It is a great time to be a Milwaukee-area sports fan, with the Milwaukee Bucks advancing to the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals this past season, the Milwaukee Brewers making another run towards the playoffs after last year’s thrilling National League Championship season, the continued success of the Milwaukee Admirals and the winning of the Major League Indoor Soccer championship by the Milwaukee Wave. Come here the top executives from these teams talk about the keys behind their success on and off the field, while also trying to draw fans in one of the smallest professional sports markets.

What:Team executives will discuss the challenges and opportunities of operating a professional sports team in Milwaukee, including drawing fans against many other competing industries, the growing prominence of social media and what it takes to be successful on and off the field.
