The Sport Industry Forum is an established conference in the sport business calendar in Abu Dhabi and has been running since 2015. The forum gathers senior names in sport business to discuss major challenges and successes in the regional sports. Our mission is provide a platform where decision makers meet to further advance the business of sport.
This year’s theme is “Next Generation Sport”. We look at the next generation of athletes, the next generation of sports fans and engaging the next generation to get active.
We can’t talk about the next generation without having representation of young people at the forum, so this year’s forum, will include a delegation of students who will provide their insights throughout the day. Do we really understand what it’s like to be a 16 year old in 2020? Do we understand TikTok? And do we really know what drives a young person to participate in sport?
150 senior directors working in the business of sport in the region, from government, brands, federations, clubs, rights holders, event organisers and venues will come together to discuss the challenges we face in our industry, and what we can do collectively to improve the sports sector.
