Jump Into the Goldfish Bowl During Connect Sports 2018

By Connect Sports Staff, June 29, 2018

The Sports Diversity Leadership Council (SDLC) and Connect Sports are teaming up this August in Salt Lake City and they invite you to skip the Shark Tank and jump into the Goldfish Bowl.

Join us August 23-25 as members of the Sports Diversity Leadership Council along with their CVB partners Compete for sponsorships based on their presentations/pitches for their events. After the feedback, presentation and judging, the winners will be announced at the Connect Marketplace. This is an opportunity to highlight your sport, your destination and to celebrate diversity while delivering sponsorships and visibility for your event.

SDLC members will submit applications to The SDLC Goldfish Bowl Committee. The deadline to submit applications has been extended to July 13. The Goldfish Bowl Committee will select finalists by July 22. Finalists will work with their host cities (CVB/Sports Commission) to create a Goldfish Bowl presentation. Consideration will be given to presentations that embody the power of numbers, relationships and community investment while showcasing diversity and sports. The finalists’ cities will make a live presentation during the Goldfish Bowl on August 25, 2018.

The SDLC has been harnessing The Power of Sports Community™ since 2015. The SDLC, along with members like Connect Sports and other leaders, work together to fulfill the SDLC’s mission to serve as the premier advocate for diversity, inclusion and excellence in sports.
