WHY INTERNATIONAL FEDERATIONS SUMMIT?

PRESENTING. NETWORKING. CONNECTING.

THEMES

BROADCAST & DIGITAL

With new innovations coming to the fore in the broadcast world, these workshops aim to provide insights from Heads of Broadcast (or equivalent) that will brief you their insights on what has been done to date and what has been learned so far. They will also brief you on what their plans are for the future and any challenges that they may face.

ESPORTS

With esports being the new powerhouse in the sporting industry, this session will uncover what new potential challenges are currently being faced but also what upcoming opportunities are available for the future development of the sport.

INTERNATIONAL FEDERATIONS & ASSOCIATIONS

These sessions will involve the international federations being allocated in their not-for-profit associations (ASOIF, AWOIF etc). With the limitations of operations due to the Pandemic, these sessions aim to better understand what actions have been taken to date, how they were delivered and focus on opportunities and gaps where this expert community can help.

HOST CITIES

City wide activation for all significant events presents unique challenges beyond the boundaries of venues. These sessions, consisting of host cities will discuss the range of challenges and ideas to attempt to deliver sustainable mass gathering events as close to normality as is possible

NEW OLYMPIC SPORTS

As the world’s greatest sporting event, the Olympic Games continuously adds new sports into the frame. This session will better understand how the federations are preparing for the upcoming games and what future opportunities are available

VENUES

In this workshop you will have the chance to introduce yourself to at least 3 Operational Heads of stadia or arena; they will brief you on their plans and challenges for future events, which will lead to a moderated discussion- tapping into your expert knowledge, about how opportunities can be exploited, and challenges resolved. This will give you permission to return to contact these individuals with specific solutions.
