Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 20, 2013
At sports pitches, tracks and stadiums around the world, the line between success and failure is getting slimmer and sports franchises are turning to new technologies and measurements to give themselves the competitive edge.
The Sports Analytics Innovation Summit will gather over 200 sports performance and analytics leaders in Boston on September 12 & 13 for a unique event to discuss this new and often secretive field.
With the increased use of analytics across elite sports, the sharing of information on how teams are leveraging data for success both on and off the field is vital to continued growth within this specialist field. Teams from across the globe will be arriving to discuss the use of analytics in sports ranging from the development of elite athletes to targeted training techniques amongst the world’s most famous major league teams.
Speakers from Manchester United, The NFL and Nike will join an elite group of analysts and innovators to share the secrets behind their sporting and business successes in a thought provoking and innovative environment.
With a multifaceted format this summit is divided into 4 tracks on the following themes: Performance Analysis, Business in Sport, Sport Tech Innovation and Digital Sport Innovation.
“We are seeing an increased dependence on analytics in all aspects of sporting performance” said Rebecca Barrie, International Events Director at Innovation Enterprise. “This summit will provide the ideal platform for those looking to learn more about this new and exciting area within not only elite sports performance but also from a marketing and business point of view, whilst also allowing those working in the field to share ideas in an informal setting”.
George Hill, Managing Editor for Sports Performance & Technology had this to say about previous events “These kind of events are what those of us working in the industry need, not only to make sure we are working at the cutting edge but also to make sure we aren’t making mistakes that others have made in the past. Increasingly we are seeing that without peer to peer discussions, those working within this emerging field are often not utilizing new technologies or approaches in the best ways”.
With its world-class content, interactive sessions and networking opportunities this summit will provide the insight necessary to pioneer strategies in your organization.
