About SportsPro Live


Founded in 2008, SportsPro has become the global leader in Sports business news and insights. Now in its fourth year, SportsPro Live is firmly established as the number one UK event for sports industry insights that will assist you in improving your businesses performance.

 

This year’s focus will be on the technological revolution overtaking sports, and how these advancements, and the investments going alongside it are assisting sports businesses in commercialising their products, and audiences like never before. With over 70 speakers and 700 attendees across the two days, and some of the top sports business minds in attendance, this is the one event you cannot miss.

SPORTSPRO LIVE 2017, PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES OF SPORT

SportsPro Live 2017 will aim to answer the key questions about the forces that are reforming the frontiers of the industry, whether that’s technologies that are changing the way people watch and play sport, emerging markets and investors who are creating new centres of power and influence, or even new concepts that are changing the idea of what sport actually is.

 

FORMAT

The event will be run over two days, with non-stop content throughout the event, well balanced with opportunities to meet and network with your peers. The programme will provide a mix of more interactive opportunities including workshops, seminars, lunches, dinners, networking drinks and more, alongside headline interviews, presentations and panels answering the questions and issues the industry faces today.
