This year we are running a ‘campus’ of 18 intimate, defined, exclusive workshops to promote connectivity. The content will flow, but it will be determined by the agenda of those in the room.

As a group we like to challenge the norm, whether that be in the development of sport, meeting the threat of climate change or inspiring organisations and host cities to maximise the opportunities they are exploring. Through our summit partnership, we are not only able to demonstrate our commitment to sport, but also help launch the re-emergence of fans attending events andunleash the pent-up passion for live events.”
