In a striking keynote address at the 2017 event, Stuart Fisher, Derby County FC, CTO outlined his club’s recent innovations in fan engagement technology.

For the last five years sports broadcast production association SVG Europe has staged the Sports Venue Technology Summit at ISE, providing a valuable opportunity to find out more about the changing technological composition and applications of the modern sports stadium.

But for 2018, SVG Europe has partnered with leading venue publication PanStadia & Arena Management Magazine to create a brand new event, Sports Venue and Fan Engagement Summit, that expands the focus to consider other areas related to the overall experience of the modern stadium – in particular those technologies geared towards enhancing fan engagement.

Now a full-day summit with multiple networking opportunities, Sports Venue and Fan Engagement Summit will take place in the Amsterdam RAI on 8 February and feature panels and presentations from leading broadcasters, service providers, vendors, architects, designers and consultants. With a number of new landmark stadiums and arenas due to open over the next few years, the event will capture an important moment in time as the needs and expectations of the modern sports venue continue to evolve rapidly.

David Davies, Editor of SVG Europe, comments: “From the deployment of display technology and high-end audio, to hugely increased quantities of content accessible on mobile devices, the visitor experience of the modern sports stadium is undergoing a profound shift. We are delighted to be partnering with the team at PanStadia & Arena Management Magazine to explore some of the key technologies underpinning these changes, and to consider how venues, broadcasters, clubs and federations can all make the most of the emerging opportunities.”

The conference is free to attend and no pre-booking is necessary. For more information, including a full programme, please visit https://www.iseurope.org/show-event/sports-venue-fan-engagement-summit-2018/#ticketshop-home. Registration will open soon on the SVG Europe website.
