Our Next Breakfast

Thurs., April 2, 2015

(to RSVP, please scroll down to the blue RSVP button)

Florida Sports is big business:    the state boasts nearly 1,800 annual events that  generate $3.1 billion in economic impact.

Babich-Poms-RobbieIncredible as it may sound, an Economic Impact of Sports survey concluded that 13.3 million visited the state solely to enjoy sports and recreation. Are we maximizing this dynamic area’s potential?  Sports fan or not, this program offers an informative and thought-provoking discussion. We have gathered an expert panel to provide their perspective and answer your questions.

PANEL: 

Tim Robbie, Pres., Fort Lauderdale Strikers

Eric Poms, CEO, Orange Bowl Committee

Rory Babich, CEO/Pres., Florida Panthers

Dave Hyde has been a sports columnist at the Sun Sentinel since 1990. He has covered three Heat, two Marlins, four University of Miami championships and too many bad South Florida sports seasons to chronicle. His writing has been in the Top 10 of the national APSE contest 15 times. A native of Ohio, he never seriously considered pulling a LeBron and returning.
