2018 Symposium

General Info

Market Segment Meetings are getting a makeover! The event is now called the 4S Summit. Conversations will focus on commonalities among our dynamic members, rather than differences. With the new format, 4S Summit is open to all membership categories.  Between keynote presentations, small group discussions, and off-site excursions, more than 25 topics will be covered in two short days to help you excel in the sport tourism industry.


Peer-led discussions.  Each 4S topic will be facilitated by an NASC member who has specific experience or expertise on that topic. 

What to Expect

Come prepared to share!  Each 4S topic will adhere the same format for the 50-minute discussion.  The facilitator will ask for self-introductions so everyone will know who is in the room.  They will then provide an overview of their personal expertise or experience on the topic.  The balance of the time will be allocated to interactive dialog and discussion.

Each room will be set in roundtables to encourage active and vibrant conversation.  Table space in each room is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees who wish to continue the discussion on a specific topic can do so in the designated “Open Discussion/Pop-Up Meeting Rooms” as indicated on the schedule
