SFIA Super Regional Series

The SFIA Super Regionals are a series of intimate, half-day conferences and receptions focused on the State of the Industry and critical topics for SFIA members and their regions

The Super Regional Series travels the country targeting regions with high SFIA member concentrations. SFIA will curate an afternoon of dynamic panel discussions with industry experts addressing the most relevant issues of the day, catering to the specific market and SFIA member focuses. Each Super Regional will include a State of the Industry Presentation, along with panels in subject areas including grassroots sports participation, consumer behavior, public policy, product innovation, women in sports, retail marketing, research, and people and culture.

Each Super Regional will conclude with a networking reception and, in some cases, a “fireside chat” with an industry leader.

“Brooks hosted a Super Regional in Seattle, and it was a great way to engage the industry in local markets and in smaller groups. The SFIA team did a great job putting together an agenda and list of speakers that drove great conversations and even better networking opportunities.”

— Dan Sheridan, CEO, Brooks

“Attending a Super Regional was an eye-opener for me. It’s clear that the SFIA is leading the way in uniting the sports community during these transformative times. With the NHL’s support, these events are not just meetings; they are catalysts for meaningful dialogue on the pressing issues we face. This partnership underscores the importance of coming together to drive progress. I encourage anyone passionate about sports and fitness to experience the synergy and innovation at these super regionals firsthand.”

— Rob Wooley, Vice President of Legislative Affairs and Executive Director, NHL Foundation

“The Boston Super Regional provided a unique and local opportunity to indulge in some timely state of the industry information from a reliable source.  The Super Regional agenda allowed for a nice mix of presentations, panel discussions, and breakouts that helped make the topics engaging and actionable.  It was also good to reconnect with some old friends and make a few new ones at the networking reception.”

— Ray Hilvert, Vice President, New Balance

“Being part of the SFIA’s Super Regional was truly meaningful for me. It was great to speak up for girls’ and women’s sports, focusing on how we can all help remove the barriers that keep people from participating. SFIA is doing an awesome job at leading these important conversations as the sports world keeps changing. These super regionals are more than just get-togethers; they’re opportunities for us to come up with new ideas to make sports more welcoming for everyone. If you care about pushing sports forward, especially for women and girls, getting involved in these events can make a real difference.”

— Haley Skarupa, Olympic Gold Medalist, NHL Foundation Ambassador, Head Scout of the U.S. Women’s National Ice Hockey Team
