TIA Tennis Forum, 'Discovery Challenge' and HOF Aug. 26 in NYC

NEW YORK, N.Y. (June 28, 2019) — The 12th Annual TIA Tennis Forum will be held on Monday, Aug. 26, on the Ballroom Level of the Grand Hyatt New York City from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.

TIA Tennis Forum will present the latest news about the state of the tennis industry, including participation, marketplace trends, grassroots initiatives, updates from TIA, ITF and USTA leadership, and more. Also joining this year’s event will be Andrew LaFiosca of Nielsen Sports, who will share player and consumer insights, and Tom Cove, president and CEO of the Sports & Fitness Industry Association, with insights on the sports and fitness trends.

A new feature at this year’s forum is the “Discovery Challenge,” an online competition designed to showcase innovation and solutions on how to increase tennis engagement and participation.

The Discovery Challenge consists of an Idea Rally®, which is an online gathering of the best and brightest minds, coming together to make a collaborative effort to explore and discuss important topics. Awards are given to participates not only for ideas, but also for contributing to the discussion. To join in the 2019 TIA Discovery Challenge, click here.

The TIA worked with IdeaConnection, one of the world’s leading Open Innovation service companies, for the Discovery Challenge.

Immediately following the Tennis Forum and Discovery Challenge, there will be a short induction ceremony to honor the 2019 inductees into the Tennis Industry Hall of Fame.

While the Tennis Forum, Discovery Challenge and Hall of Fame induction are free to attend for those in the industry, space is limited, so registration is required. Click here for free registration to the Tennis Forum.
