RENEWING RESILIENCE

Firmly established as the singular agenda-setting event for Australia’s Sport industry, the Business of Sport Summit is returning in December with renewed ambition to build business resilience.

As our operating environment corrects and the sector begins to unlock, the Summit presents an enviable opportunity for the nation’s Sport leaders to connect, combat shared challenges, and leverage opportunities emerging from the upturn economy.

Together, we will interrogate the forces shaping the profession, from unleashing the power of fans to digital ecosystems, broadcasting innovation and live experiences, all with the intent of charting a new path to progress.

Why Attend

  • The Business of Sport Summit secures national and global speakers of unmatched quality and immense authority. Our attendees are charged with shaping the conversation, armed with an array of real-time engagement tools.
  • Every session is independently moderated to facilitate candid discussion and debate, and the programme is designed to provide attendees with valuable opportunities to connect in-person on the business that matters.
