University of California

Mark Stuhr

Director of IT
University of California
“Attended my first SEAT conference this year and it was the most germane, to my work life, conference I’ve attended in years. As an IT Director for a major collegiate athletics department all of the content sessions, presentations and conversations were interesting, pertinent and valuable. Can’t wait for next year!”

Mike Waddell

Sr Assoc Director, Athletics, University of Illinois
“#SEAT2015 San Francisco was a fantastic experience for our staff as we were able to hit so many critical areas of operation with one conference. The speakers were approachable after their sessions, which made getting that extra bit of difference making information possible. The social events at Levi’s Stadium and AT&T Park were also the best I have ever been a part of at any conference the last 24 years. Kudos to the SEAT team! We are already looking forward to Las Vegas!”

Chris Freet

Sr Assoc. AD – Ext Relations & Strategic Communications,
University of Arkansas
“SEAT is a fantastic conference for learning during programming sessions, but where it distances itself from the pack is through unique networking opportunities across league and professional lines. The value of networking with peers and partners takes SEAT over the top. Christine Stoffel and her SEAT team have successfully created a fervent learning environment and seamlessly blended it with inspiring and entertaining networking opportunities.”

Brad Wurthman

Assoc. AD -Marketing & Fan Development
University of Illinois
“The content provided at #SEAT2015 was fantastic – innovative, creative, and actionable. The speakers were approachable and provided real world solutions to problems that everyone in the audience is facing at their institutions. The best part of the conference was sharing ideas across varying levels of sports as collegiate athletics attempts to model professional sports more directly. Already excited about Vegas and #SEAT2016!”

“This is my second year to attend SEAT and it did not disappoint. I attend several conferences a year and SEAT is by far the one that I get the most out of. Very well run and organized. The staff could not been more helpful and pleasant. If your job description includes stadium and or arena IT this is the conference to mark on your calendar.”

Dr. Andrew Goodrich

“Attending SEAT has proven to be the best professional development and networking experience in my career. ”

Troy Kirby

Director of Ticket Operations

“I thought it was a fantastic experience. Rarely do you find conferences that delve deep into various subject matter, enough that they aren’t repeating themselves. I was quite pleased with the interaction between each segmentation of the attendees, and the fact that some were in sales roles, meeting with those in CRM roles, and coming together over a cohesive learning experience.”
