MORE THAN A GREAT TROPHY

Adding a trophy to the cabinet is a great feeling but success at the Sports Technology Awards translates into something far more meaningful commercially. Companies who have been finalists or winners, repeatedly tell us that this has given them tangible business returns; these span reduced sales cycles, elevated customer opportunities, increased inbound investment and great employee motivation.

Here’s why we believe Sports Technology Awards’ success carries so much clout.

Strong Competition

The scale and scope of organizations entering the awards is staggering and represent the work of many of the sector’s greatest visionaries. To cut through this competition and reach the shortlist is itself a real achievement; this is why the finalist logos carry so much weight. 

The Judging Is Fair, Transparent, Rigorous and Expert

Our judges are unquestionably some of the most informed people in the sector and the judging process means that each of their points of view are accounted for fairly. They are totally unbiased in their voting and are committed to working to see excellence win. 

Size Doesn't Matter

We ensure organizations of all sizes enjoy fair representation and opportunities at the awards and are proud that The Sports Technology Awards is it one of the few industry events where a bootstrap start up can beat an established, international sports brand to emerge victorious.  Ultimately excellence, not organization size, seizes the trophy.
