About the

IP Studios Future of Sports Broadcasting Summit

Sports events are back – no doubt, we continue to build on the traditional stadium experience, but stakeholders are also simultaneously investing in creating dramatic and immersive viewer experiences for sports fans on TV and streaming platforms. Covid-19 and the challenges of hosting a game in a stadium have prompted and inspired innovation among suppliers, vendors, producers, broadcasters and others within the sports chain to think differently and experiment with new shows, formats, technologies and ideas.

The IP Studios Future of Sports Broadcasting Summit will serve as a springboard for all stakeholders in sports media – clubs, global and regional sports producers, broadcasters, rights holders, tech visionaries and talent – to discuss, address and tackle upcoming challenges while also sharing their own innovative strategies.


2022

Webinar

The IP Studios Future of Sports Broadcasting Summit will be streamed live as a digital event spread over the course of two days, commencing on 15 – 16 March, 2022.

Insightful

Conversations

The IP Studios Future of Sports Broadcasting Summit will aim to discuss some of the challenges the industry has faced in recent times and how some of the players moved from the field to the screen with some events.
