Keynote Address

Billy Beane

Billy Beane is the Executive VP of Baseball Operations for the Oakland A’s and the subject of the film Moneyball. 

Considered one of the most progressive and talented baseball executives in the game today, Beane shattered traditional MLB beliefs that big payrolls equated wins by implementing a statistical methodology that led the Oakland Athletics to six American League West Division Titles. That strategic methodology has come to be known as the “Moneyball” philosophy. Today, Billy Beane’s Moneyball principles have been adopted by organizations to help manage their assets, talent and resources more effectively.

Register today and stay tuned to learn how you can WIN A MEET AND GREET WITH BILLY BEANE!

Event Highlights 

Stay in the Brand New Gran Destino Tower!

Delight in an array of enhancements and new features at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. Highlights include:

A New Arrivals Experience
Before you even reach the port-cochère, you’ll be welcomed with magnificent views of this Resort hotel—which is particularly captivating at night thanks to its dramatic lighting. Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort features a grand entrance with 3 elongated archways and a signature, ribbon-patterned design that lends to a striking architectural expression.

Upon arrival, step through an entryway featuring intricate wooden screens and into a grand, 2-story lobby adorned with rows of Moorish hanging lanterns—all beautifully enhanced by subtle lighting. The rear wall of the lobby features full-height decorative bronze screens inspired by Spanish tile patterns.

Centralized Amenities
A hub of activity, Villa del Lago—the “Lake Villa”—is a mirage-like collection of one-story, wood buildings set in the middle of Lago Dorado. This centralized amenities area is inspired by the artists, dreamers, adventurers and explorers of a bygone age whose passion for life is celebrated in the rich legends, lore, art and cuisine represented here. Located at the intersection of the 3 new bridges that span the lake and link to the hotel, Villa del Lago represents a bustling “crossroads” for those in search of recreation and relaxation.

This scenic setting is also home to Three Bridges Bar & Grill, a lakefront restaurant serving up tasty cuisine. Behind the central bar is a beautiful stone hearth, where you can relax by a glowing fire pit in the evening as you sip on refreshing beverages.
