Sports Tech HQ Joins Awards’ Official Partner Family

LONDON, NEW YORK, 11th May: The STA Group today announced that Sports Tech HQ has become a sponsor of The Sports Technology Awards, the leading global celebration of tech-led innovation in sports.

The multi-year partnership will commence with The 2023 Sports Technology Awards, which are presented in association with NBC Sports Next and will take place on May 18th in New York City.

Rebecca Hopkins, CEO The STA Group, said: ‘Partnering with a company like Sports Tech HQ, which invests in sports tech, reflects our commitment to celebrating innovation at inception. We find that it isn’t the size of the company that moves the needle, it is the size of the idea!’

She continued: ‘We’ve been dubbed ‘The Oscars of Sports Technology’ because our reach and influence is truly global. We’ve been informing, inspiring and celebrating sports tech for a decade and, with so many influential sports and visionaries based in North America, it made sense to come here and celebrate our 10th anniversary.’

“Sports Tech HQ is proud to partner with The STA Group,” said Jeffrey Hintz, Executive Director of Sports Tech HQ. “We look forward to collaborating with this incredible group on driving awareness and impact within the sports tech industry.”

The Awards are owned and operated by The STA Group  which has worked with Aggregate Sports, to deliver this year’s Awards ceremony. Aggregate Sports were responsible for brokering both the Sports Tech HQ and NBC Sports Next deals.
