Illinois Sports Business Conference was started by a group of University of Illinois

(Champaign-Urbana) students who saw an opportunity to fill the gap of knowledge and resources between the sports industry and the business world. The ISBC team works together throughout the year to put on an annual conference hosting elite leaders and professionals in the sports industry. Through various workshops, networking events, and an annual conference, ISBC fosters relationships and creates a roadmap for students to explore possible careers in the field and to find their niche in the sports industry.
