The audience will get fired up for the challenges of 2015 tipping off with technology insights from leaders in sport but will push beyond this by bringing together the most inspirational thinkers in digital from around the world irrespective of sector. 

Supported by the NBA and SAP, Leaders Meet Innovation will see futurologists, strategists and innovation leaders stimulate the thinking of a hand selected 200 person audience of senior executives from sport, entertainment, technology and business.

James Worrall, CEO, Leaders commented: “The technology industry is a space that changes at a remarkable rate and at Leaders we wanted to embrace this with an inspirational event to kick start the year.  We’re excited to partner with technology pioneers NBA and SAP to create such a unique gathering themed around innovation” 

“As a global league, the NBA understands the importance of using technology to reach a global fanbase and we are thrilled to participate in this unique event with Leaders and SAP,” says Ben Morel, NBA Senior Vice President, Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Technological innovation is the future of the sports industry and we look forward to joining these industry leaders to discuss this exciting topic.”    

“Technology is having a huge impact on competition in business and sport,” said Darren Roos, Chief Operating Officer, SAP EMEA. “Insight from real time data is transforming the judgements that we make both on and off the field. For the first time we can truly make the right decision at the right time. Unlocking the power of technology means this is an incredibly exciting time and making decisions in business and in the ‘business of sport’ will never be the same.”
