Phil Keoghan, Host/Co-Executive Producer of The Amazing Race, to Share His N.O.W. Philosophy to CSEE and Market Segment Meeting Participants

September 10, 2015

The NASC is finalizing the plans for the Fall 2015 CSEE Module and Market Segment Meetings, scheduled for September 29-30 at the Antler’s Hilton in Colorado Springs, CO.

KeoghanPhil2014Part of this final preparation involved having a telephone conversation with our keynote presenter, Phil Keoghan, Host/Co-Executive Producer of Jerry Bruckheimer’s Emmy Award-Winning television show, The Amazing Race and author of No Opportunity Wasted.

When the NASC approached Phil about speaking at the fall meeting, we indicated to him that the membership would enjoy his perspective on event/operational components in his role as Co-Executive Producer of The Amazing Race.  In many ways, the television show can be compared to events our members host and own. Phil has experience working with local organizing committees, production teams, hospitality communities, travel and housing bureaus, and more.

It was clear during the planning call he understands and “gets” what our members do and is excited to bring his passion for thinking outside the box, using your imagination as your currency, and letting go of the handrails – all life philosophies he writes about in his book – to our meeting.

CSEE and Market Segment Meeting attendees should expect to be entertained, encouraged, and challenged by Phil’s message.  He is dedicated to continual learning and for people to look at what they do day after day in a new way.

NASC Announces Dates for 2015 Fall Meetings

February 12, 2015

The NASC will hold its 2015 Fall Meetings in Colorado Springs, the home of most of our National Governing Bodies in Olympic and Pan American sports, along with many other event rights holders.

All functions will take place September 28-30 at the Antlers Hilton Colorado Springs, located in the heart of downtown. Our board will meet the afternoon of September 28. Our Fall 2015 CSEE Module will take place the morning of the 29th. Market segment meetings, Rapid RFP Review, and a reception with event owners will take place the afternoon of the 29th, and market segment meetings will conclude on the 30th. View the preliminary schedule.

This new event replaces our partnership with the USOC’s Olympic SportsLink conference, the rights to which were transferred to another event. In fact, our room block at the Antlers Hilton is part of the room block previously held by the USOC.

We offer all area event owners and NGBs a way to meet with interested cities in a cost-effective manner: all they will need do is come to the hotel the afternoon of the 29th, present their event opportunities in the Rapid RFP Review, attend a reception, and be home for dinner!

NASC Active members will also have the option to arrange private meetings with local event owners while in Colorado Springs.

Preliminary plans are to rotate this new event between Colorado Springs and Indianapolis. These cities are home to almost all of our NGBs plus the NCAA and many other prospects.

We will open registration later this spring.
