Leaders in Digital Sport offers a series of unique, interactive workshops that are led by the top figures and innovators in the industry, draw on the expertise of the audience, and offer deeper insight into a number of key digital topics. Taking place in the Millennium Boxes at Stamford Bridge, they are “invite-only” with no media, agencies or suppliers allowed, and offer an intimate environment away from the main conference platforms for smaller groups of senior executives.

Leaders in Digital Sport 2013 Workshops included:

Delivering the Future of Live Sport Online

The number of people watching live sport online is only getting bigger. Innovative clubs, broadcasters, sponsors and governing bodies are grasping this opportunity to give fans something new. This interactive session will examine the thinking behind some of this season’s rich live and interactive sport coverage on the web and mobile and highlight how technology, commercial goals and user behaviour now point to what the future will hold.

Attendees will join Manchester City and Aqueduct to discuss commercialisation of online match coverage, the future of in-stadium experience, and how providers of live sports coverage online can grow their share.

Speaker: Russell Stopford, Head of Digital at Manchester City FC

Led by Rob Oubridge, Founder, Aqueduct



Connected sports solutions engage your fans and grow your audience: New ways to enrich the viewing experience

Live stats, social media feeds, exclusive video… Sports fans have an endless thirst for rich media content and this is changing the way live games are experienced. This workshop will examine how this thirst can be quenched by offering useful and synchronized information, drawing on fascinating examples from the London 2012 Paralympic Games and looking at what innovation can be expected from the upcoming Sochi 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Join Atos and Worldline for case studies from their customers that will demonstrate how to make the best of the connected world.
