Our Baseball Career Conference is Open for Registration!

smww baseball career conference

Every year our Baseball Career Conference during the Winter Meetings is one of the highlights of our conference calendar. All the movers and shakers from Major and Minor League Baseball are in the area - scouts, administrators, GM's and more - it's an incredibly exciting place to be!

We've just now opened registration for our 2-day event, December 9-10th in Las Vegas, and I suggest you register early because this event always sells out.

"This conference provides people who aspire to work in professional baseball an invaluable experience," remarked Brian Hannan from Vanderbilt University. "With a premier who's who of speakers, the ability to ask questions and extensive networking opportunities, this conference is a major difference maker for advancing your baseball career." 

At SMWW we've been building trusted relationships with baseball experts over the last decade plus. When we ask them to be part of our conference and help our career minded baseball fans take the next step in their career, most of them say "yes, of course!".

Our guest list over the last few years is a who's who of baseball:

  • Mark Shapiro, Toronto Blue Jays President and CEO
  • Dayton Moore, Kansas City Royals, General Manager
  • Ned Colletti, Los Angeles Dodgers General Manager
  • Peter Gammons, Hall of Fame Baseball Writer
  • Harold Reynolds, MLB Network On-Air Talent and Fox Sports Analyst

These are the types of people you can learn the business of baseball from first hand during our Baseball Career Conference. Ask them questions, learn from their experiences, network and engage!

"Anyone who is looking to be a part of the sports management world should attend the conferences SMWW puts on," says attendee Sarah Dittmer from St. Ambrose University. "They are insightful, you meet high end executives who were once in your shoes (like Kansas City GM, Dayton Moore!) and the networking is unbelievable. This was a great experience!"

This is a one of a kind event and if you register now you lock in your seat, and your price, because the cost will go up from here until we sell out.

Over the coming months we'll keep you updated with confirmed speakers and special networking events. 

Get registered today and make a plan to come see in Vegas in December!
