Join Us for the Inaugural SVG Sports Intern Meetup!

As we continue working to build the relationships that help the sports industry thrive, we must encourage the next generation of professionals to do the same. With that in mind, please bring your interns and join us at the Inaugural SVG Sports Intern Meetup. This two-hour event, hosted by HBO Sports, will give you and your interns the opportunity to come together with other SVG members and their interns to network, share stories, and take a tour of HBO’s brand new studio space.

Wednesday, August 11, 5-7 p.m.
HBO Studio Productions
120A East 23rd Street

(Between Park and Lexington Avenues)

Please be prompt, as at 5:30, some of the brightest minds in the sports industry will take the microphone to discuss how they got started in the business. Panelists include:

Andrea Berry, Fox Sports, SVP Broadcast Operations
Jason Cohen
, HBO Sports, Director of East Coast Production
Steve Hellmuth
, NBA Entertainment, EVP Operations and Technology
Joe Inzerillo
, MLB Advanced Media, SVP Multimedia and Distribution
Christina Mixon
, NBA, Director of Graphics

Tours of the new HBO HD Studio will also be provided throughout the evening. Please let us know if you or your interns are interested in participating so that we can schedule accordingly.

We are extending the invitation to all SVG members, intern coordinators, and interns. The dress will be business casual, and light food and drinks will be served. Please let your younger interns know that proof of age will be required to drink alcohol – but sodas will be provided for everyone.

Join our “SVG Member Interns” Facebook group and select “Attending” on the SVG Sports Intern Meetup event page in order to receive updates as the event gets closer.

Please RSVP to Lauren@sportsvideo.org by Friday August 6. Important: You must RSVP all attendees so we can put them on the Security List for HBO. Anyone who is not on the list will not be allowed into the building.

We are very excited for this first-ever event and hope you can make it! Feel free to contact Lauren Dwyer, Lauren@sportsvideo.org, with any questions.
