“By far, if I could only attend one IT conference a year it would be SEAT. Besides the incredible locations and accommodations, the content, networking and site tours are exactly what sports and entertainment professionals are looking for to help keep themselves and their organizations ahead of the competition. I especially enjoy the separate session tracks so I can get a much wider range of exposure to different solutions and topical discussions.” – Tod Caflisch, Vice President/Chief Technical Officer, Minnesota Vikings Football
“SEAT continues to be the most valuable industry-specific organization and conference for me. This organization has provided a vehicle through which I can build a network of peers from university and professional teams across the country. Through SEAT I find a group of colleagues who are intentional about addressing current industry issues, evaluating the impact of new technologies on the business, and building discussion/collaboration opportunities around these things. The peer-generated content and real life case studies mixed with a healthy blend of vendors as subject matter experts sets this conference apart as a “must attend” event for me.” – David Payne, Senior Technology Strategist- Athletics, University of Oklahoma
