NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will be the featured opening speaker for the third annual SXSports. The sports themed session of SXSW has become quite popular. In previous years panels have featured sports media talents like Charles Barkley and Bill Simmons.
The NBA is already one of the most popular sports leagues in the world, and yet, since taking office, Commissioner Silver constantly welcomes new ideas to improve the game and harness the global sports audience,” said Rebecca Feferman, Head of SXsports. “No topic is untouchable, and his willingness to break free of the status quo is something all our SXsports attendees can learn from and aspire to within their own experiences.”
With no topic being out of bounds, I’m certain it will be a great learning experience. The conference takes place Friday, March 11 through Sunday, March 13 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin, Texas.
