The Illinois Sports Business Conference is hosted in the spacious and exclusive Colonnades Club in Champaign, IL.
Located atop the iconic Memorial Stadium, home of the Fighting Illini Football Team, conference members get a chance to see the entirety of the football field from a bird's eye view while enjoying conference panels and engaging in exciting conversation during our networking lunch.
Directions to the Colonnades Club can be found below. Free Parking is available in lot 36 at the northwest corner of the State Farm Center.
What To Bring
During the conference, you'll be immersed into an environment full of people who share the same interests, a love for sports, a passion for business, and an eagerness to learn how these two merge in the day to day.
To make the most of your time at the ISBC, we suggest bringing a pen, notepad, professional attire, business cards (optional), and a curious mind.
You will have plenty of time to ask questions during panels, network with speakers, and get to know fellow attendees. So, bring lots of energy and we're excited to see you there!
Speakers will have the option of reserving a room at the I-Hotel just south of Memorial Stadium using our group code, otherwise please contact us if you require a room to attend. Additionally, information on shuttle options to the stadium will be made available closer to the date of the conference.
