Live Sport & Entertainment the “new order” of the Smart Media Industry 

Explore the new realities of the media sector (turned into a smart media sector) that need to be addressed according to a triple approach based on Live sport & Entertainment contents, innovative technologies in relation to media such as digitalisation and new technologies in the sports ecosystem, and new business models (impact on business, sports equipment, media broadcasting, infrastructure manufacturing innovation process, e-sports, big data & digital in sports), funding innovation in 21st century sports, sports innovation and the future of the human-technology interface! 

This session will explore how innovation can be achieved in order to keep up with the continuous quest for performance improvement, fan engagements, comfort, how stimulation of active lifestyle can provide business chances, how public authorities can contribute to the innovation ecosystem in the sports sector and aims to support and develop small and medium sized enterprises (SME) setting up in the sport / media sector to achieve innovation in their product and service offerings and provide them with new opportunities for the establishment of joint strategic projects, partnerships and business opportunities.

The “Connecting European ambitions in Sport & entertainment” Conference in collaboration with  Enterprise Europe Network, will also feature business matchmaking activities (Sport Innovation & Match) powered by the Enterprise Europe Network  – also known as business ‘speed dating’ – bringing together businesses and other organisations looking for partners to take their commercial development and business projects forward. In the past, these matchmaking events have proven to be very successful and enable participants to share their partnership offers or requests and schedule meetings in advance through the B2Match tool. Moreover additional brokerage events will be organised in break-out sessions aimed at kick-starting European projects that will ultimately respond to the numerous call for proposals published by the European Union in the many EU financial programs such as : ERASMUS + / HORIZON EUROPE / COSME / LIFE / INTERREG / and many more.   

To conclude, this year’s annual conference will equally feature social as well as sports events so as to enhance interactions between participants in a ludic, enjoyable and exciting manner.
