Event description


Event Logo

With the incredible success of our inaugural London summit, featuring over 600 executives across 350 sporting organisations, we have brought the world's most disruptive sports technology conference to American shores.

Our San Francisco leg will showcase the latest innovations in performance analytics and immersive digital products for all the 'Big Four' North American Pro Sports - NFL, NBA, NHL and Major League Baseball. How do these clubs and divisions remain at the forefront of the way people play, coach and watch sports?

Alongside these executives, we will also bring a dynamic mix of sporting disciplines to build a complete picture to understand how fans consume content and how athletes achieve success.

Our launch brochure can be seen via our conference website HERE
