2018 WSIA Summit: Keynote Andre Reed

WSIA is pleased to announce legendary athlete Andre Reed as the first keynote speaker of Summit 2018, scheduled for February 27-28 in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

Pro Football Hall of Fame

Chances are you’ve heard the name Andre Reed before. How so? Because Reed is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, an accolade that only 310 people have been honored with since 1963.

When you think about the sheer number of athletes who have played professional football throughout the years, reaching Hall of Fame status seems near impossible – and for Reed, it took years of patience. After being eligible for eight years, Reed was finally inducted in 2014, officially going down in history as one of the greatest football players of all time.

Reed will get the excitement under way on Tuesday during the Kickoff Lunch, where Summit attendees will sit among fellow industry leaders and colleagues while hearing personal accounts from Reed about success and resilience through a life of sports.

This will undoubtedly be a highlight at this year’s Summit – don’t miss it!
