The world’s first and best mixed martial arts business conference just got a lot better. As of today, the cost to attend the event is FREE. All attendees who already purchased an expo ticket will be refunded. When asked about the change to the format, Mike Hauben stated, “This industry is at the worst it has ever been. Over 50% of the companies are failing, because they don’t know how to do things properly. We want to make sure that everyone in this industry is able to get the knowledge they need and have the ability to network with the right people.”
This year’s Fight Summit also adds something new to the mix; a pro-am jiu jitsu tournament and a CrossFit Challenge. Hauben was quick to shed light on the decision. “I don’t like going to a seminar and be bored during the down time. This brings something new and entertaining for the people attending while also adding value to the conference. Both things can and do play a role in successful gyms and promotions and we wanted to ensure that we didn’t exclude anything.”
Like previous years, Fight Summit is all about learning about the business of mixed martial arts. Some of the best in the industry will be speaking including Bruce Buffer of the UFC, Brian Butler from Suckerpunch Entertainment, Brian Cimins of Grapplers Quest, Ed Soares of Blackhouse, Glenn Hansen of MMA Business Magazine, Hans Molenkamp of Triumph United and many more.
The event takes place on Saturday November 3rd and Sunday November 4th. In addition to the seminars and the special attractions, several vendors will be in attendance showcasing the latest products.
