Ron Seaver has established his name in the sports industry with over 25 years of experience. He began his sports career with selling tickets for the San Diego Padres in Major League Baseball and worked his way up to get involved on sponsorship and promotions. His experience with Major League Baseball enabled him to explore better opportunities this time on the agency side.
After leaving the Padres, Ron took the role as the Vice President of Fantastic Sports Promotions establishing and managing their merchandise division and working with different corporate sponsors along the way. This experience gave him an opportunity to start his own company Seaver Marketing Group which owns and manages the National Sports Forum.
The National Sports Forum aims to invite sports professionals from different kinds of sports into one event to share ideas that each attendee can learn from.
The 24th National Sports Forum will be held on February 10-12, 2019 in Las Vegas. For more info visit the National Sports Forum website.
