Welcome to the US Sports Congress Website

The US Sports Congress, entering its eighth 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.

Changes to Trade Reception Announced

Based on suggestions from our Advisory Board, convened in Colorado Springs earlier this year, the USSC will be making changes to the trade reception. While our attendees embrace the concept of not restricting their time with prospective clients, they do want different ways to connect with them.

Beginning with the Congress this year, the opening session will feature a meet & greet concept where DMO's and Sports Commissions can talk briefly with Rights Holders to set appointments during the USSC. This ensures a clear line of communication and establishes a channel for all our attendees to be more successful in their efforts.
