Introduced in 2019, the LA Sports Symposium, is an annual conference that examines the world of sport in the region and connects and engages sports business leaders on the emerging trends and cutting-edge innovations in the sports industry, further celebrating Los Angeles as the number one sports community in the world.   
  “Los Angeles is one of the world’s great sports towns because our teams embody the diversity, talent, and passion that has built L.A. into one of the world’s most extraordinary places,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “The L.A Sports Symposium will make our athletic tradition even richer and give sports fans everywhere another reason to visit our city.”  
  The event brings together thought leaders, dealmakers, industry innovators and athletes to engage on relevant topics that effect the business of sport in the LA region and beyond.  
  A cornerstone of the Symposium is the presentation of the annual Los Angeles Region Sports Economic Impact Report, conducted by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC), which measures the economic impact of the industry on an annual basis.
