My view on the first-ever industry conference.
February 20, 2023 by Charlie Eisenhood in Analysis, Opinion with comments
Late last week, dozens of disc golf industry professionals gathered in Tucson, Arizona, for the Disc Golf Pro Tour’s first-ever Disc Golf Industry Conference. The event, which started Wednesday evening, offered networking opportunities for industry insiders and the chance for the Tour to bring many of the sport’s influential business people to one place at the same location as the All-Star Weekend that began Friday.
I was invited to speak on a media panel at the event alongside Terry Miller (The Disc Golf Guy, Smashboxx, DGN) and Jonathan Gomez (JomezPro founder). Full disclosure: my two-night hotel stay, conference ticket, and some meals were comped by the DGPT — and I received a stipend for speaking — but I paid for my own travel from New York.
Below are some reactions to the conference as a whole as well as some insight into the sessions that I was able to attend.
