NBA fans are eagerly awaiting the NBA All-Star 2020 game to be played at the United Center on Sunday. However, the upper tier of the NBA fraternity is more interested in attending the NBA All-Star Tech Summit which will be held over the weekend. This all-exclusive event is even more expensive to attend as tickets do not even go on sale for the event. Generally, the who's who of the basketball world attend this event which is held annually to kick off NBA's biggest weekend of the season.
In an interview with USA Today, Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive said, “The NBA All-Star 2020 technical summit is one of the most important technology summits in the world. At most tech summits, you see one kind of person from the technology world. Here, you have entertainers, you have athletes, you have business people, you have technologists. It’s all about bringing (the) right people together, and this summit does just that.”
The tech summit is an invite-only event and entry is limited to about 500 people. Attendees must check in to receive their credentials. Extra passes are unavailable. A ticket on the secondary market is totally out of the question.
