SVG Europe and Sky Sport Germany are delighted to announce that their long-term cooperation will continue with another edition of their acclaimed German sports industry summit on March 22. The Sky Sport Summit 2018 will take place at the broadcaster’s facilities in Unterföhring, Munich, Germany.

Following on from a successful 2017 event that treated a capacity crowd to the latest insights into the German sports broadcast business and technologies such as VR and IP, the 2018 summit promises a packed programme of panel discussions and presentations. Topics include robotics and artificial intelligence, e-sports, set design, sports graphics and immersive audio.

Speakers confirmed to participate in the 2018 summit include Prof. Dr. Gordon Cheng (TU Munich), Philipp Lawo (Lawo AG), Thomas Riedel (Riedel Communications), Daniel Url (Qvest), Mike Ward (Reality Check Systems) and Arnd Paulsen (Dolby Germany).

“The Sky Sport Summit in Germany is now a fixture of the busy annual SVG Europe calendar, and we can’t wait to return to Munich next month for what promises to be a fascinating insight into the many new and emerging technologies bringing about profound change in our industry,” says SVG Europe Editor David Davies.

Attendance at the Sky Sport Summit is strictly limited to 70 delegates and first preference will be given to Platinum level sponsors and those based in Germany. Enquiries can be directed to [email protected].
