NYVC Sports: Growth of Athleisure Panel

Loeb & Loeb LLP is proud to sponsor the NYVC Sports Event on the topic "Growth of Athleisure".

This panel will be focused on the fast growing trend of "athleisure." From durable and smart looking clothes that one can wear to the gym or the office to accessories and products that promote both healthy lifestyle and entertainment, this relatively new category is attracting massive amounts of investment, celebrities and brands looking to engage consumers at both work and at home. We will speak to several emerging brands and entrepreneurs about the space, where it is and where it will be going.


Seth Everett, Host & Basketball Insider, NBC Sports
