Enhanced, improved, condensed: Sporty’s has announced its webinar series for 2015 based on pilot-feedback of the most popular topics.  Sporty’s webinars are live, multimedia presentations delivered online that are informative, interactive and can be viewed in the comfort of your living room or office.  Attendees hear from subject experts and have the opportunity to ask questions.

“We began our webinar series as a community outreach initiative to help our customers stay informed about new and developing technology.  The overwhelming success and the feedback received from participants has us excited about new topics for 2015 and updates to the most popular presentations,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman.
