2017 Sports Fan Summit returns to the MCG

2017 Sports Fan Summit returns to the MCG
January 31, 2017

This year’s edition of the Sports Fan Summit is to return to the Melbourne Cricket Ground – marking the fourth time in 10 years that Australia’s most famous stadium will host the event.

Sports Fan Summit organiser Simon Arkwright, Chief Executive of the Sport Research Group explains “the Melbourne Cricket Ground is a truly iconic venue and is a great fit for the Sports Fan Summit; regarded by many as the southern hemisphere’s premier sport marketing conference.”

Having introduced key elements in sport marketing and fan engagement through its past event, the the overall theme for the 2017 Sports Fan Summit is Event-focused Fan Engagement.

The Sports Fan Summit presents an invaluable opportunity for club, league and governing body executives and senior managers to further their knowledge and obtain new contemporary ways of thinking on fan engagement, both now and in the future. 

Not only will this give delegates key takeaways on their subject matter but speaker insights will be made within an Australian context.
