The 2020 event moderator will be Grady Sheffield, the director of campus recreation at Towson University.

Forty campus recreation executives alongside limited sponsors will gather for two days of roundtable discussions, networking and fun at the event. The Summit is an intimate event designed to connect and build relationships among peers and suppliers.
