The 2013 SMWW Baseball Career Conference will be held in Orlando, Florida at the Sheraton Lake Buena Vista Resort. This conference is to gain valuable insight into a variety of careers from those working at all levels in baseball including MLB and the minor leagues. Today, 20 minor baseball leagues operate with 246 member clubs in large, medium, and small towns, as well as the suburbs of major cities, across the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and Venezuela.

This day long career conference offers unique panel discussions and question-answer periods designed to start or advance your career on the business of baseball. The day will be split up into diverse speaker panels; including scouting, marketing, management, media, public relations, digital video editing, athlete representation, broadcasting, and sports career strategies.
 
One of the advantages of this conference is the ability to network within the industry with fellow baseball minded individuals. Some work for a team, others are looking to break into the industry. Following their presentations, most speakers chat one on one with attendees. Most attendees come alone, but make many new friends, and peers within the industry. And they return year after year!
 
Simply put, if you are looking to work in baseball, this is a must attend event.
