Sports Technology Talks (TechTalks) facilitates privileged access to the minds and learnings of international visionaries from many sectors. Listeners will hear extraordinary stories of innovation, examples of daring tech-led implementation, and learn and be inspired by people leading disruption across the world.

On May 3rd 2018, the STA TechTalks will consist of a series of presentations given by senior figures tangibly changing their worlds through technology. These presentations won’t promote hype and attendees should leave the talks better informed and inspired as to ways they can embrace technologies which have radically altered other sectors, businesses or consumer experiences

Closing the day will be a Technology and Athlete Welfare panel discussion by elite athletes. Athlete Welfare is a topic the Awards works hard to highlight in order to inspire the tech world to innovate in this area.

The STA TechTalks Audience and Networking Opportunities 

The talks will be enjoyed by over 300 leading sports industry figures, innovators and international athletes from around the world who will arrive with open, hungry minds.

The mix of industries present on stage will also drive a different atmosphere for networking; this isn’t the normal sports industry event where people in sports talk to people in sports about sports. The dynamic will be different in every sense.

The STA TechTalks London series will be brought to you by Switzerland, the partner nation at this year's Awards. The Swiss Business Hub UK & Ireland is part of Switzerland Global Enterprise the federal invest and export promotion agency supporting small- and medium-sized enterprises from Switzerland and Liechtenstein wishing to export and develop their market presence in the UK and Ireland.

Tickets to the STA TechTalks are also included in premium tickets for the Sports Technology Awards
