London, UK

Register Interest



SportsPro Live 2018 will answer the key questions about the forces that are reforming the frontiers of the industry. This includes what technologies are changing the way people watch and play sport, emerging markets and investors who are creating new centres of power and influence, and new concepts that are changing the idea of what sport actually is. 



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




The digital age of broadcasting is here. How do you bring together a fragmented audience? We’ll be discussing the value of rights in this disrupted ecosystem and assessing the challenges and opportunities for rights holders and media companies in pursuit of a viewership in constant flux.


  • OTT and digital distribution  
  • Building up rights value
  • Social video
  • VR & AR 
  • Broadcast tech


As communities forged in the digital space grow ever more powerful, the sports industry is under growing pressure to produce better tailored content and experiences. Live will consider how gaming, esports and the digital world are friend and foe in creating and bringing together real fans.


  • eSports 
  • Digital fan engagement
  • Social media analytics
  • Tech sports 
  • Social media, data capture and CRM
  • Data stories 


Where is the money coming from in sport, and where is it going? Where is the value in the sports industry? How will cryptocurrencies change the game? We’ll be looking at how teams, leagues, rights holders, and investors can harness the power of tech.  


  • New technologies
  • New market expansion 
  • Territory focus
  • Making investment pay
  • The state of play
  • Infrastructure 


How does the sports business become fit for purpose and for the digital revolution? Live will emphasise the need to diversify the views, experience and background of those running sport to drive success in a new era.


  • Diversity
  • Transparency and integrity
  • Good governance
  • Best practise outside of sport 
  • Leadership
