Fight Summit 2012 Announced - Dates, Speakers, Activities Confirmed
The world's annual mixed martial arts (MMA) industry conference has been scheduled, and the 2012 show looks to be their biggest and best ever
Fight Summit has just announced it’s 2012 show details, and will take place November 3-4, 2012 at the Rio in Las Vegas. The world’s original and most respected MMA business event looks to be the best Fight Summit yet, featuring speakers from the UFC and more. Monster Energy returns as a title sponsor.
Every industry has it’s own conference and expo for industry professionals, insiders, and enthusiasts. The music industry has SXSW, the automotive industry has the SEMA show, and the action sports industry had ASR. In 2009, Fight Summit was launched to be such an event for the combat sports industry, and became the first and only industry conference for the sport of mixed martial arts, rather than being a casual fan expo. In only three years, the show has grown to be a very high-profile event and is now widely regarded as the premier gathering for MMA business professionals and athletes in the world.
The event routinely features business seminars lead by some of the biggest names in the industry, and this year is no different. Confirmed speakers include UFC’s Bruce Buffer and Michael Mersch, famed trainer Firas Zahabi, Hans Molenkamp of Triumph United and Osiris Shoes, renowned manager Ed Soares, jiu jitsu pioneer Eddie Bravo, Ryan Loco of Jaco Clothing, leading promoter Brian Cimins of Grapplers Quest, and over twenty others. Past speakers have included the likes of Randy Couture, Greg Jackson, and more.
In addition, Fight Summit features the only business-to-business expo in the industry, connecting brands with retail stores and distributors looking to expand their product lines. The show typically attracts the majority of the top twenty MMA retailers in the world, and hosts the industry’s leading manufacturers, apparel brands, and industry services. Returning sponsors include Monster Energy, Triumph United, and Zebra Mats.
