About Thought Leaders

Thought Leaders is a “by-invitation-only” retreat that brings together the sports industry’s most senior executives for a time of information sharing, dynamic speakers, outdoor activities and peer-level relationship building. The event provides attendees with the opportunity to address important topics outside the scope of day-to-day sports business, such as leadership, creativity, innovation, social justice, work/life balance and diversity and inclusion.

In the past, the guest list for our Thought Leaders event was exclusively for current and past Sports Business Journal Forty Under 40 honorees, Game Changers honorees, Champions and Lifetime Award winners. However, in recent years, we have broadened this event to include a select group of the industry’s most senior-level executives.

2022 Program Updates

As in years past, we have chosen a destination that is secluded enough to create a retreat atmosphere, but accessible enough for easy arrivals and departures. The most exclusive retreat in sports business, the 2022 SBJ Thought Leaders will be held at the iconic Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO on July 18-20.

The Broadmoor’s incomparable backdrop of the Rocky Mountains provides the perfect setting for Thought Leaders networking activities. Whether you are interested in zip lining adventures and horseback riding, Colorado fly fishing, or an afternoon of golf, Thought Leaders at the Broadmoor has something for you.

SPECIAL NOTE: COVID-19 GUIDELINES

We encourage all attendees to be fully vaccinated and recommend taking a test within 24 hours of the beginning of SBJ events. Most municipalities no longer require proof of vaccination for COVID-19 to participate in public indoor activities, including the various SBJ events. All attendees will receive a colored wristband indicating their social distancing preference and masks will be available.
