Informing and Inspiring the Tech-Led Evolution of Sports

What Are the Talks?

Sports Technology Talks facilitates privileged access to the minds and learnings of international visionaries from many sectors.

Listeners will hear extraordinary stories of innovation, examples of daring tech-led implementation, and be inspired by people leading disruption across the world.

How Talks Work

The Talks consist of a series of presentations given by senior figures tangibly changing their worlds through technology. These presentations don’t promote hype and attendees will leave the Talks better informed and inspired as to ways they can embrace technologies which have radically altered other sectors, businesses or consumer experiences.

International Events

After the success of the inaugural Talks before the 2018 Yahoo Sports Technology Awards on 3rd May, the Sports Technology Talks will soon be hosting events on a global scale. Keep an eye out on this page for more information about future Talks in the coming months.
