DHT - SET Conference 2018
The Sports, eSports and Technology (SET) Conference 2018 is a new event being planned during December 27-30, 2018. The goal will be to develop a world class yearly event that will showcase Sports, Esports, Technology and the amazing growth and investment that has been made in the The Detroit District and target both the global Esports, sports technology, and sports tourism markets. Current Activity The DHT- SET 2018 is partnering with an existing youth hockey tournament that has aligned their tournament with the Michigan Amateur Hockey Association (MAHA). This hockey tournament is estimated to have over 40,000 in attendance and will have teams, players, coaches, families and sports vendors coming in from all over the world. The DHT- SET 2018 is planning additional activities and events for the youth hockey tournament attendees and building a overall event that will engage more local, state, national and global stakeholders. This includes a eSports tournament, hockey, sports fan fest experience, Celebrity Hockey Charity Game and Gala, and tech conference and job fair. The goal is to develop a yearly hospitality event for Detroit capitalizing on the best downtown combination of sports, entertainment and convention venues modeled after great events like SXSW. Each March for more than three decades, SXSW has welcomed the world’s most interesting thought leaders to Austin for an unparalleled mix of industry conferences, trade shows, and festivals. The event transforms the city into a global mecca for creative professionals and cements Austin’s reputation as a thriving, innovative metropolis. The impact of the 2017 SXSW’s 31st official event increased 7% to $348.6 million (compared to $325.3 million in 2016).
