“The US Sports Congress is my absolute favorite and most productive sports trade show due in part to its intimate size and format. The business contacts and relationships that the PDGA has developed there are second to none and our organization has greatly benefitted from them. I’ve attended the US Sports Congress five times and it will always be on our list of conferences that must be attended.” Brian Graham, Executive Director, Pro Disc Golf Association

“I highly recommend attending The US Sports Congress.  As a multi-year attendee and sponsor, I consistently find the US Sports Congress a unique gem among the many.  With an agenda keenly focused on benefiting your organization; through education, fostering and maintaining long-term relationships and invaluable peer-to-peer networking, the Congress has been and will remain on my list of must-attend conferences.” Elek Sebestyen, National Sales Manager, Silver Legacy Resort Reno.
