Lacrosse Industry Summit Set for Jan. 18

The next Lacrosse Industry Summit is five weeks away, and Inside Lacrosse is excited to announce several of the panel topics and speakers. The Summit, a gathering of the lacrosse industry’s influential professionals and thought leaders to share insights and spark discussions that will help shape the future of the sport, is set for Thursday, January 18 ahead of the annual US Lacrosse Convention in Baltimore.

The day-long conference will take place downtown at the Hilton Baltimore and begin with a continental breakfast. One keynote discussion anchors both the morning and afternoon sessions, with additional panel discussions programmed throughout the day. The day concludes with the popular and valuable networking reception.
