We are proud to announce that GlobalSportsJobs has been confirmed as a media partner for the upcoming Sports Innovation Summit taking place at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco this September 9th & 10th. The event will be a great opportunity for you to connect with global leaders at organizations that include Nike, ESPN, Jawbone, Red Bull, NBA, Polar, NCAA & more.

The Sports Innovation Summit aims to provide attendees with the knowledge & tools to enhance individual, team and business performance, affording the opportunity to learn from leading figures in the industry and collaborate with high-level peers.

The summit is split into two events - the Sports Analytics Innovation Summit and the Wearable Tech in Sport Summit. Sports technology is constantly evolving, and the impact it can have on players and teams worldwide is an issue dominating the sector. The summit includes panel sessions that give delegates the chance to ask questions, argue their opinions and find solutions to problems that they are facing in this increasingly competitive climate.

Day 1 of the event will include the panel session ‘Innovation in the Next Generation of Wearables’. Moderator Mounir Zok, Sports Technologist for the US Olympic Sports Commitee, will be joined by  other panelists from Intel, Kopin, Adidas and USA Field Hockey to discuss the influence wearables have, how they can best optimize sports performance, the most effective analysis strategies, and the best outcomes so far. In this session, delegates can actively engage in the discussion and have all questions regarding wearables and analytics answered.

Wearable technology in sport has increased significantly over time. Adidas have progressively been developing wearables for over a decade and are now pioneering within the invisible wearable space. Jon Werner, Innovation Explorer at Adidas, will discuss how they’re raising consumer awareness and showing how they have been initiating new ways to deliver value to a new market.

“This highly interactive summit will delve into the biggest challenges facing industry practitioners today, allowing them to discuss the challenges they face with sporting frontrunners ” says William Tubbs, Conference Organiser.

The summit will give you the opportunity to connect with 300+ industry leading figures & 60+ speakers across two events over two days.
