Sports influencer Darren Rovell will be among the headliners at next month's Innovation Summit — North America in San Francisco to talk about his leap from ESPN to the Action Network and share insights around content and brands.
Rovell made national news late last year when he announced plans to depart ESPN for The Action Network, a media startup focused on sports gambling. Over the previous 18 years with ESPN, ABC News and CNBC, Rovell has chronicled the increasingly interconnected worlds of sports, entertainment and business via broadcast, print and digital channels, amassing a following of more than two million Twitter followers and 32,000 followers drawn to what Sports Business Journal last year labeled the sixth-most-powerful social-media personality in all of sports.
In this keynote address — sponsored by ICF Next — Rovell will address his bet on the gambling niche, share insights on creating compelling content, and offer a few reflections on the brands and organizations he thinks are getting it right.
The 2019 Innovation Summit - North America takes place on February 13 in San Francisco at the JW Marriott and will feature the In2 SABRE Awards dinner in the evening. Tickets for both events are now available.
