Innovation in Digital Sport
Mon 27 March 2017, 08:30 – 18:00 BST
The first Digital Sport event of 2017 is one that looks to come at a subject that many battle with, innovation in sports. We see technological innovation happening on a daily basis, and cover much of it on the DigitalSport.co site. But what is innovation and how can we set up our business or organisation to be innovative?
Thanks to our speakers we will cover this from a number of angles. Not just looking at those great technologies that are helping us engage with fans better, or monetise our digital presence, or get that extra % from athletes.
But how to practically implement agile in a world where the day to day pressure and relentness need to sell tickets for most venues makes it hard for people to find the time to breath, let alone adjust their business model.
Speakers and format will be announced in the coming days. Check out the website or @DigitalSportUK for details as we have them.
