Three representatives from the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder — Travis Herman, director, ticket and premium sales; Ashley Barnett, marketing and promotions coordinator; and Tanna Zach, Manager, marketing outreach — will be featured speakers for the MKTG630 Sports Marketing Speaker Series.

The lecture will begin at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7, in the Kansas State University Business Building Lecture Hall. The speaking event is open to the public and free to attend, as is the Official Thunder Watch Party scheduled for 9 p.m., at 1200 Moro St. The Thunder marketing team has incorporated 17 volunteer members from the MKTG630 Sports Marketing class into their promotion and execution of the watch party as an experiential learning opportunity for those interested in a career in sports.

The Sports Marketing Speaker Series is organized by marketing professor Doug Walker as part of the curriculum for his Marketing 630 class.
