About the guest and session
Luka Dukich is overseeing the team’s social media channels and content offerings from basketball coverage to sponsored content. Dukich has been with the Bulls since 2015, and during his time with the team, the Bulls have become the industry leader in differentiated content, receiving SportsBusiness Journal’s 2017 “Best in Sports Social Media” award and a nomination for the same award in 2018.
Prior to his time with the Bulls, Luka spent five years with United Entertainment Group, the sports & entertainment marketing arm of Edelman Worldwide. Luka was a guest at SPORTO 2018 Conference, where he impressed the audience with the lecture about Bulls’ content strategy. You can find his video interview from the conference here.
In this online session, Luka will focus on the exciting documentary series The Last Dance (Netflix, ESPN), which was at the centre of the global sports audience during the pandemic. The Chicago Bulls made extremely effective use of the moment/period when the series was broadcast and dominated social networks by creating engaging and unique content. Among other topics, the behind-the-scenes approach at TikTok will be presented, where together with the mascot Benny the Bull they are the sports club with the most followers in North America and the second most followed sports account in the world. They also created the first branded TikTok content series for a sports team.
