Our Third Annual Independent Football Vets Conference is set for May 3 – 5 at the South Point Hotel in Las Vegas! When you book your Conference weekend, please follow these steps:
- Book your room using the South Point Reservation link (click HERE) or by calling them Toll Free at (866) 791-7626 and use Group Discount Code INDO0502;
- Book your flight as soon as possible to get the best advance ticket rates;
- Then sign in with that information on our Registration Page (click HERE) so we can have your admission badges ready when you arrive (all retired players and families, panelists and invited media are welcome but you will need an admission badge to be admitted to all events).
As always, this year’s Conference will be evolving and improving to provide the most useful information to our retired football player community.
And once again, there’s never a shortage of topics to cover this year at our Third Annual Independent Football Veterans Conference. We’re adopting an informal living room format and assembled discussion panels with audience participation instead of individual speakers for most of our Conference. Each panel discussion will be broadcast and posted as a separate topic covering the most important issues and questions retired players want to know.
Each panelist will be given an opportunity to talk approximately 5 – 10 minutes about their particular areas of expertise and interest, after which 40 – 45 minutes will then be devoted to general discussion with questions from our audience following the panel conversation. We’ll be posting a list of our panelists and speakers, along with their Bios shortly. Here’s our proposed 2013 Schedule so far (still in final development and subject to changes).
