By Julia Dunn on May 20, 2016

Atlanta’s 2016 College Sports Summit will feature two prominent keynote speakers over the three-day event next month, adding wisdom and vibrancy to the program, according to a recent press release. The speakers were announced recently by the Sports Video Group (SVG), and the summit will take place from June 1-3 at Omni Hotel at CNN Center based in Atlanta, Georgia.

According to the current schedule, Robert Shaw will speak on the main stage on Thursday, June 2. Shaw is a representative for Global Sports Media Partnerships at Facebook, “[working] with partners worldwide to best utilize the Facebook platform to achieve broadcast and publishing strategies.” Shaw plans to give attendees advice for engaging fans and alumni in the college-sports realm by using Facebook Live.

On June 3, Commissioner of the America East Conference Amy Huchthausen will address summit attendees. She has been commissioner for five years thus far, and plans to “showcase the digital-video strategies her team uses for the mid-major America East conference and its member institutions.”

Recently, Huchthausen was recognized as a 2016 Forty Under Forty honoree by SportsBusiness Journal and was named a Game Changer by this publication in September 2015.
