The 2014 Minor League Baseball Promotional Seminar will take place in Oklahoma City, Okla., on Sept. 30-Oct. 2, at the Renaissance Oklahoma City Convention Center Hotel.
The Oklahoma City RedHawks (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) will be the host club for the 37th annual seminar.
“Oklahoma City has all of the attributes necessary to host a great Promotional Seminar,” said Tina Gust, MiLB Vice President, Business Development. “Its location makes it easily accessible to sports executives from around the country and the host hotel and the RedHawks are located in a vibrant downtown area that will provide attendees with a number of entertainment and dining options within walking distance.”
“The Oklahoma City RedHawks are proud to partner with the Oklahoma City Convention and Visitors Bureau to host the 2014 MiLB Promotional Seminar,” said Oklahoma City RedHawks President/General Manager Michael Byrnes. “Oklahoma City, the Bricktown entertainment district and Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark will be great host venues for the event. I’m confident that our guests across the industry will be treated to a first class event they won’t soon forget.”
The three-day MiLB Promotional Seminar annually features conversations and idea-sharing regarding multiple aspects of successfully operating a professional sports franchise, including sales & marketing, promotions, social media, public/community relations and more. A Professional Baseball Employment Opportunities (PBEO) job fair and a trade show also take place during the event.
Next year’s seminar will allow attendees to interact and network during social events, such as The Welcome Reception, Cocktail Party & Silent Auction, MiLB Charities Community Service Project and an outing at Chickasaw Ballpark, where the 4th annual Golden Bobblehead Awards will be presented.
