We are excited to announce that we have rebranded the Sport and New Media conference to re-launch as Connected Sport.
will be returning to Paris again this year with Connected Sport in partnership with sponsor and host, Eurosport.
The media universe has undergone rapid and significant changes over the past few years. The introduction of new devices, like smartphones and tablets, have created new consumption habits and new demands and expectations from fans. Consumers no longer want to be communicated at; they expect to be engaged.
These innovations bring with them new commercial opportunities which the leaders in sports media are now starting to exploit. Game changers like 4G mobile and the rapid rise of second screen mean consumers are now living in a connected world and sports rights holders, broadcasters and brands can either join them or risk irrelevance.
Connected Sport puts these issues centre stage. Attend this event and ensure you are well positioned to take advantage of the new reality.
As well as changing the lives of consumers, technological convergence is having a profound impact on the media rights market. Major new players are entering the market challenging the accepted order and raising the stakes ever higher. This may be good news for some but there will be big winners and losers.
The expert speakers at Connected Sport will ensure you are on the right side of change.
Digital media really is connecting the world and breaking down barriers between athletes, sports, brands, broadcasters and consumers. Join us at Connected Sport to navigate this new world and develop deeper long-lasting relationships.
We look forward to seeing you there!
