White will address attendees from 12-12:30 p.m. following the presentation for the Multi-Screen Sports Experience: Success with Social Media, Apps, Live Streaming and More. Additionally, Hawk will speak from 4:45-5:15 pm on the heels of the topic of Moving Media: File-transport and Media Management in a Changing Sports Production World.

The Sports Entertainment Summit "explores the growing power of sports as an entertainment experience, as improving technology helps fans stay in touch with games and athletes on a constant basis across multiple platforms." The Summit is also designed to "assess how all parts of the industry including media companies, agents, sports organizations/franchises and sponsors are working to take advantage of new opportunities to keep business vibrant."
