2010

The 2010 conference was another success, finally outgrowing the MIT campus capacity. Attracting over 1,000 attendees (with another 400 on the waitlist), the conference moved off-campus to the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center and ESPN became the presenting sponsor. The featured panel, What Geeks Don’t Get: The Limits of Moneyball, included Mark Cuban, Jonathan Kraft, Daryl Morey, Bill Polian, and Bill Simmons, and was moderated by Michael Lewis. The panel explored the decision-making processes general managers and owners go through beyond the numbers. Beyond panel discussions, 2010 also saw the introduction of the research paper track, an extremely popular addition.
