COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The United States Olympic Committee today announced details regarding the 2017 Team USA Media Summit, which will be held Sept. 24-27 at Canyons Village in Park City, Utah. More than 100 of Team USA’s top hopefuls for the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 are expected to participate in the four-day media event.
The Team USA Media Summit provides print, broadcast, online and photo journalists with access to America’s top athletes from all winter sports, all in one place, leading up to the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. Members of the media will be able to conduct interviews and capture content through press conferences, roundtable sessions, broadcast interviews, photo shoots, sport demonstrations and lifestyle segments.
“We’re thrilled to announce that the 2017 Team USA Media Summit is headed back to beautiful Park City, the home and training center for so many of our Team USA athletes, and one of the epicenters of winter sports in the United States,” said Patrick Sandusky, USOC chief external affairs officer. “The event will provide U.S. athletes with the opportunity to showcase their personalities and share their Olympic and Paralympic journeys with the hundreds of journalists in attendance – media who are instrumental players in the Olympic and Paralympic movements – through their in-depth coverage and incredible storytelling. We’re looking forward to another productive and spirited Media Summit.”
The USOC has hosted the Team USA Media Summit prior to each Olympic Games since 1988. Previous host cities have included Atlanta, Chicago, Colorado Springs, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Park City and Salt Lake City.
Additional details regarding event registration and hotel reservations will be announced in June.
