Welcome to the US Sports Congress Website

The US Sports Congress, entering its tenth year, attracts top level decision-makers from the world of amateur sport. The attendees of this event are senior level executives who represent sport governing bodies, the destinations who desire to host their events as well as industry suppliers. These Rights Holders represent tens of thousands of amateur athletes who participate in their programs. The US Sports Congress prides itself on providing insightful professional development sessions. Our presenters have included individuals from Major League Baseball, ESPN and the PGA to name a few. Want to know more about the Conress? Check out the video below and see what happened for yourself.

What our attendee’s excel at is the networking. We’ve created an environment that creates strong partnerships that drive successful events and create opportunities for all those attending. But don't take our word for it. Here's what attendees are saying about the US Sports Congress.


“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.

"Over the years, the Association of Chief Executives for Sport has found the US Sports Congress to be a productive, informative and useful event. We highly recommend your participation." Stephen Ducoff, President/CEO, ACES
