WHY ATTEND?

We get it, there are so many events out there and you may not be sure if Leaders Week London is right for you? Or maybe your boss needs convincing?

Any questions you may have – let us answer them…

If I take time OOO, will it be worth it?

You bet it will. We’ve put together a jam-packed Leaders Week calendar.

The flagship Sport Business Summit will take place at Twickenham Stadium on the Wednesday and Thursday of the week; not forgetting The Broadcast Disruptors, the Leaders Sports Awards, and a series of social events taking place throughout the week too.

There’s something for everyone and our promise to you is that you’ll leave the week with fresh inspiration, actionable takeaways and decision-making connections, ready to grow your audience and increase revenues.

Billy Beane, Sir Dave Brailsford, Gianni Infantino, Pam El, Stephanie McMahon, Arsène Wenger, Sir Martin Sorrell, Roger Goodell, Adam Silver, Richard Scudamore, Martin Glenn, Val Ackerman, Josep Maria Bartomeu…

Just some of the executives who’ve joined us on-stage in recent years. And this year, we plan to go even bigger…

Inspiration won’t be hard to come by from any one of the executives we’ve got lined up to take to the stage. And there’ll be at least 40 of them.

This session at Leaders Week New York 2018 gives you a flavour of what to expect.

You keep talking about being global – why does that matter?

With over 70 countries expected to be represented in the audience, we can truly say that every aspect of Leaders Week is global.

It matters because it saves you time and budget from flying around the world to meet industry peers, as the who’s who of global sport business are brought together in one place. And in this instance, in one of the world’s most powerful and lucrative sports markets.

How do I know the people in the room will be relevant to me?

97% of previous attendees describe the seniority of Leaders Week delegates as excellent or very good and so the company we keep is, and always will be, the senior decision makers in the industry.

Get in touch if you want to receive a snapshot of the delegate list for this year.

Is it going to be the same old faces I see at every event?

There’ll be a few recognisable faces in the room for sure.

But 40% of attendees are new to the event each year, making Leaders Week London the perfect place to combine catching up with industry peers with brand new business connections.

A few days is hard to meet everyone I want to meet, right?

You can connect with new and existing peers 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after using our Official Event app. We know how important networking is to you; so we’ve invested in a new networking app that’ll help you to make the connections you’re after.

It’ll launch at the beginning of September and will allow you to customise your event schedule ahead of the week. You’ll also be able to follow up with the connections you’ve made in the month after, so the platform is there for you to keep conversations going, well after we welcome you in October.

The event looks great, but how can I apply the key takeaways back in the office?

We take notes so you don’t have to.

Our editorial team will provide on-the-day write-ups covering all the content delivered on-stage and our marketing team will distribute little snippets and tidbits from the day’s run of play across social channels. A comprehensive post-event report will also be available (for free), giving you thought-provoking, applicable takeaways after we see you in October.

I’m an international attendee, so how easy is it for me to come to Twickenham for The Sport Business Summit?

Twickenham Stadium is 5 miles from Heathrow Airport and is easily accessible through London’s train networks.

Despite being on the outskirts of London, it’s easier to get to than you think.

What legacy does Leaders have?

Leaders Week London 2019 will mark our 12th event in the UK, and over 10,00 executives have been with us along the 11-year journey so far. Trust us, we know how to run a conference in our home destination.

And the international representation at Leaders Week is only going to become wider with the ongoing support of parent company American City Business Journals (ACBJ) and sister company Sports Business Journal (SBJ).
