    Recruiting Sporting Events to KC 

    Speaker:  Kathy Nelson, President & CEO,
    Kansas City Sports Commission and Foundation

    Sporting events like the Big 12 and NCAA basketball tournaments and the U.S. Figure Skating Championships don’t just appear in Kansas City. They’re the product of an organized effort and bid process. The Kansas City Sports Commission and Foundation is the engine that drives those campaigns plus 25 annual local events. Since Kathy Nelson became the commission’s President & CEO in 2011, the organization has landed more than 20 NCAA championship events. Learn about the sport of attracting athletes and fans to KC. How do championships and other sporting events end up in Kansas City? Find out how it happens and why is it important to our community from Kathy Nelson, who was also recently named the 5th Most Influential Sports Figure in Kansas City.
