Win or Go Home: Fantasy Football’s Digital Impact

Monday, March 14
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon H
500 E 4th St


Winning a fantasy football league is not a trivial endeavor. It takes patience, planning, dedication and desire. Staunch fanaticism like this can turn hobbies into industries, and fantasy sports’ multi-billion dollar market is no exception. More than ever, fan passion demands innovation because the most passionate fans will always gravitate toward the products and experiences that best cater to their interests. With an emphasis on fantasy football, our goal is to take a deep dive into the strategy behind major digital properties: from FanDuel and DraftKings to eSports and YouTube, we'll examine the rapidly shrinking window of opportunity around cultivating passionate fan communities.
