New awards to recognise achievements in sport technology in Australia and New Zealand

New awards to recognise achievements in sport technology in Australia and New Zealand
June 11, 2018

The achievements of Australian and New Zealand sports technology are to be recognised at the inaugural Australia and New Zealand Sports Technology Awards (ANZSTA), being presented in Melbourne on Thursday 9th August 2018 in Melbourne.

The new awards celebrate excellence and innovation from Australia and New Zealand-based organisations in the application of data and technology across the full spectrum of sports and eSports, covering analytics, coaching, management, player performance and health, fan engagement, broadcasting, media and stadiums.

The awards will be presented in 11 categories, with eight focused on projects and achievements in 2018, two awards focused on startups and one award for a lifelong commitment to the Sports Technology ecosystem in Australia.

The awards are supported by IoT Hub publisher, nextmedia, the Telstra-Cisco alliance, Vumero Sports, the Australian Sports Technologies Network (ASTN) and LaunchVic, Victoria’s startup ecosystem agency.

Introducing the Awards, Vumero Sport Managing Director, John Persico, said they will recognise the achievements of local sports tech companies and to increase their profile in the global sport tech industry.

Persico explained “there are a lot of very successful sports tech SMEs in Australia, but we need to turn some of those into great world-renowned companies. These awards aim to be a mechanism to do that.

“Australia is a strong market for sports technology, so if you win one of these awards it means you are up there with some of the best in the world.

“We might be a small country by population and economy but there is a great opportunity to export sports technology.”

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner at Etihad Stadium on Thursday 9th August, the evening before the 2018 Australian Sports Analytics Conference which will take place 10th August at the Melbourne Convention Centre as part of the Sports Analytics World Series.

Free to enter, nominations are now open and close at 5pm on Friday 29th June 2018.
