Hotel Football Old Trafford

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 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 planning in a world where the day to day pressure and relentless need to sell tickets for most venues makes it hard for people to find the time to breathe, let alone adjust their business model.
