Sport is changing. Fans are changing. Digital and technological innovations have disrupted traditional communication channels and redirected revenue streams. In 2019, we were proud to launch the SportsPro Fan Conference, taking a new look at the trends affecting sports marketing and sponsorship through the most important relationship the industry will ever have: the one with its fans.
Bringing together the biggest names and the most creative thinkers in the business, the Fan Conference examines a whole range of ways in which changing behaviour and emerging opportunities are reshaping this sector.
The evolution of sponsorship in an age of engagement.
How fans are disrupting traditional sports media.
The power of compelling storytelling.
Digital transformation efforts and the future of fan engagement.
The key to leveraging technology to optimise assets and ROI.
Why brands are seizing the esports opportunity.
