Business of Sport Summit prepares for online edition on 1st and 2nd December
November 17, 2020

With its upcoming ninth edition to be staged in a different format than in previous years, Business of Sport Summit is preparing for digital delivery on 1st and 2nd December.

Having secured executive involvement from Tennis Australia, Netball Australia, National Rugby League, Cricket Australia, Australian Olympic Committee, and a host of other leading national businesses to directly address key issues facing sport, BOSS is being delivered at a critical juncture for the Australia’s sport industry.

Introducing the event, Dominic Patterson, founder of Business of Sport Summit organiser Connect Media stated "the Summit presents an enviable opportunity for the nation’s sport leaders to connect digitally at a time where physical collaboration is limited. We look forward to delivering a highly interactive discussion on the challenges of sustaining and driving growth in sport during these trying times."

Connect Media Commercial Manager, Jack Martin added “the Summit is driven by an ambitious business agenda, and our audience is screened for seniority to ensure delegates are networking with the minds shaping business.

“Our limited keynote and moderated panel speaking opportunities will effectively embed delegates in this top-end business community. Digital and physical brand activations, as well as consultations in dedicated activation spaces further enable delegates to engage with this decision-making audience.

“As a marketing platform to demonstrate expertise, credibility and grow business with senior sports management professionals, the Business of Sport Summit offers unrivalled cut-through.”
