Scheduled for Saturday, July 21st, the Diversity Business Summit will take place at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place located at 2233 South Martin L. King Drive in Chicago, Illinois. This event runs from 7:00 am, closing after the Chicago White Sox game.
The Diversity Business Summit is a Major League Baseball premier sports business event which provides an employment and supplier diversity trade fair. During this one-day summit, entrepreneurs and job seekers are provided with a rather unique opportunity to meet all of the MLB’s organizations, as well as the Minor league levels and their sponsorship partners.
The Saturday function is jam-packed with national representation, matchmaking sessions, networking opportunities, and exciting speakers. Guests will be provided with unparalleled interaction throughout the day but especially after the closing ceremony, when the White Sox play at Cellular Field. During this summit, guests will learn about baseball operations, international sponsorship opportunities, doing business with the MLB, the supply chain, and have the chance to meet the club buyers. There will also be a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by a club Human Resources meeting for job seekers. The closing reception will take place at 6:30 pm at Cellular Field and the included game will be between the Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins.
For people thinking about starting a business in the sports field, or planning to take advantage of any sports franchise opportunity, this summit would be an invaluable event to attend. Prices for this event range between $99 and $299, depending on the options selected. For more information, scheduling, or exact pricing, please visit the Major League Baseball website.
