ISG organises B2B conferences, symposiums and exhibitions around the world, focusing on the opportunities, challenges, strengths and weaknesses of individual sports, as well as on the topical issues that impact all major sports. Our team conducts detailed research to develop the event programmes and undertakes extensive industry consultation with key stakeholders, international governing bodies and sports federations. Speakers of the highest calibre address each event, representing the key influencers and opinion leaders from the sports industry and providing unique insights to the issues faced by the industry’s various sectors.
The conferences offer unbiased, balanced and information-rich content in a diverse range of formats to encourage debate, discussion and dialogue between all sectors of the sports industry. A stimulating blend of plenary addresses, presentations, panel debates, workshops, case studies and round table discussions offers maximum opportunities for participant interaction and knowledge development.
Integral to the success of the events are the extensive networking and business-matching opportunities which bring participants together to develop relationships and create new business partnerships.

Technology demands the largest budget in regards to dollar spend within an organising committee. It is crucial that technology is planned, implemented and managed efficiently.
