Many areas have seen significant technology innovation in the past year, but none more than in Sports Tech.  While athletes moving faster on the field, the pace of technology innovation in sports continues to explode at an incredible rate.  So where is this innovation happening?  EVERYWHERE.  From tracking athletes’ movement, health, and performance, to in-venue data collection and the fan experience, to eSports and media, change is happening at an ever faster and profound way.

Technology allows us to obtain and analyze volumes of data about athletes, from movement and location while performing to biometric sleep patterns. The result is new and engaging content for fans, advanced methods of evaluation for teams, and scientific training regimens for athletes. Never has data been more important, or more controversial.

Smart stadiums. It was a buzzword in 2017. How smart were our stadiums and how much smarter can we make them via strategic data collection, from point-of-sale transactions to interactive digital signage and augmented reality experiences via a smartphone?

Streaming, OTT, cable bundles, and digital media. We consume sports much differently than we did just a few years ago. There were massive shifts in the sports content industry that will have huge ramifications on the future of live sports.
