The Beyond Sport Summit & Awards is the largest global event convening the world of sport for social change. Since 2009, teams, leagues, federations, brands, corporates, NGOs and development organisations have been gathering to share best practice, celebrate outstanding efforts and develop new partnerships. The event has been hosted around the world; from Chicago to Cape Town to Johannesburg and Philadelphia and now, in 2016, the global Beyond Sport Summit & Awards returns to its debut location - London.
Each year, we focus the Summit on something timely – a theme that captures something relevant, current and urgent in our world where sport can and should be playing a role. Introducing #BeyondInnovation.
Sport has always uncovered new ways to test the edge of human performance and has harvested a culture of pushing the boundaries of what’s possible; while the cause sector has enveloped itself in technology, using it to engage more people, have a wider impact, measure and share on a deeper level.
This year at Beyond Sport we are taking this opportunity head on. Over three days we will focus on how innovation is elevating sport and social change.
