PORTLAND, OR (November 5, 2014) – The Sports PR Summit (@SportsPRSummit) has launched a newly redesigned official website with the help of brand design firm Watson Creative (@WatsonCreative). The website will feature the most up to date schedule of topics and panel discussions for the annual Sports PR Summit, held in New York City each May.

Voices authoring columns for the Sports PR Summit blog will include sports PR executives, media members and athletes.

The Sports PR Summit is an annual, invite-only event that brings together senior PR executives from the pro and collegiate sports ranks as well as from top sports corporations for panel discussions and valuable networking opportunities. Prominent media members and athletes share candid insights about the best ways for PR executives to work most effectively with them. The event allows for all attendees to leave with a better understanding of the evolving communications issues and challenges in the sports industry.

Noteworthy panelists and featured speakers at the Sports PR Summit have included ESPN reporter Jeremy Schaap, Sports Illustrated Executive Editor and Senior Writer Jon Wertheim, USA Today Sports Editor Mary Byrne, ESPN & CNN columnist and reporter LZ Granderson, NBA Senior Vice President Communications Mike Bass, MLB VP Communications Matt Bourne, MLS Executive VP Communications Dan Courtemanche and NCAA Managing Director of External Affairs Erik Christianson.

Sports PR Summit presenting sponsor Postano (@Postano) has created a customized “Postano”  for the new website to aggregate all of the social media conversation around the hashtag #SportsPRSummit.

The new website delivers a clean, clear, responsive design. “This will enable the Sports PR Summit to keep the conversation going with its followers throughout the year,” said Watson Creative CEO Matt Watson. “The new site now looks and feels as premium as the event itself.”
