(Spin Digit Editorial):- Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Sep 16, 2021 ( – An inspiring catalyst for young professionals, high school students, and college students eager for a career in the sports and entertainment industries is coming to the Atlantic City Convention Center on Tuesday, September 28th for a one-day event in conjunction with the TEAMS ’21 conference.

The Dare to Dream Experience is a career exploration, educational and motivational program that introduces students and young professionals (ages 18 to 25) to careers behind the scenes of the sports travel, tourism, events, and entertainment industries.

The Dare to Dream Experience in Atlantic City is the first event in the new partnership of Dare to Dream with Northstar Meetings Group, a division of Northstar Travel Group. This exclusive, multi-year co-location agreement with The Dare to Dream Experience will introduce students ages 18-25 to careers behind the scenes of the sports-related travel, tourism, events, and entertainment industries. As part of the agreement, The Dare to Dream Experience will be held in conjunction with both the annual TEAMS Conference and Esports Travel Summit through 2025.

TEAMS (Travel, Events, and Management in Sports) is the world’s leading conference and expo for the sports event industry. TEAMS ’21, set for September 27-30 in Atlantic City, is presented by SportsTravel, and hosted by Meet AC and the Atlantic City Sports Commission. Launched in 1998, TEAMS attracts more than 1,000 attendees including CEOs, executive directors, and event managers from sports organizations as well as representatives from sports commissions and convention bureaus, corporate sponsors, event suppliers, and other hospitality industry opinion leaders. For more than 20 years, TEAMS has helped define the sports-event and appointment-based trade show industries.

“Our goal is to provide young students with in-depth knowledge about the amazing careers behind the scenes in the sports and entertainment industries,” said Diane McGraw, a long-time leader in the sports and events industry, and the founder of The Dare to Dream Experience. “We want to show students how to pursue and succeed in these careers, meeting some of the leading industry executives who were once in their shoes, letting them know everything you need to know in order to prepare for your future. We want to help young people get on the way to the career of their dreams.”

To date, The Dare to Dream Experience has impacted thousands of students across the country who have attended the program, in cities including Louisville and Philadelphia.

The Atlantic City event is a prelude to a nationwide, three-day virtual career event, The Dare to Dream Experience is slated for January 13, 14, and 15, 2022 on the event’s online virtual platform. You can register here for The Dare to Dream Experience.

“There is a tremendous current need for The Dare to Dream Experience, especially with the difficulties facing at-risk youth and the problems the hospitality and events industries are having with staffing,” McGraw noted. “Our goal is to help students visualize their future, motivate them to finish high school, and strive for advanced education and careers. There are opportunities in sports and sports-related travel, but students need to understand that those opportunities are only available for them if they apply themselves and stay motivated.”

McGraw, the founder and Executive Producer of The Dare to Dream Experience, has had numerous career successes prior to launch McGraw Productions, including positions as the Executive Director of Tourism and Film for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, President/CEO of the Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission, the Orlando Sports Commission, Louisville Sports Commission and the Philadelphia Sports Congress, now known as PHL Sports.

Industry Partners of The Dare to Dream Experience include Sports Video Group, Northstar Meetings Group, Achieve NEXT, Hollywood Professional Association, Sports Philanthropy Network, Disruptive Digital, Dundee Hills Group, and Splinter Studios.
