Back in the Game: Pictures from SVG Europe’s first in-person event in more than 18 months
SVG Europe’s Back in the Game, sponsored by MediaKind, took place at Kings Place in London on the afternoon of 28 July, featuring a series of fireside chats and the opportunity to network.
The event welcomed key figures from this year’s summer of sport who shared their insights, experiences and challenges working on Euro 2020, Wimbledon, The Hundred and Test Match cricket and the Disability Cup. The afternoon also included the unveiling of the shortlist for SVG Europe’s Sports TV Awards 2021.
Attendees were then given the opportunity to move to the spacious Battlebridge Room, complete with covered terrace overlooking the Regent’s Canal, for networking.
