Sport Business News

Sportcal is delighted to announce that Simon Bazalgette, group chief executive of the Jockey Club, Sarah Jayne–Gratton, actor, author and now producer of the channel SocialMediaSuperstar.tv, and Jeff Bullas, social media speaker, blogger, and strategist from Australia will join consultant and former IOC official Michael Payne (previously announced) to form a fascinating new panel to discuss how entertainment and social media are changing the face of sport, at 20 Years of Sport at Clifford Chance in London on 11 May 2011.

20 Years of Sport, or 20YS for short, is a unique global gathering of the sports industry where senior executives from all sectors of the industry will come together to reflect on the last 20 years of sport and discuss and debate what the next 20 years might hold for the sports industry. The timetable for the day has now been changed with the Sports Entertainment and Social Media session starting the afternoon session and the Media, Internet and Technology session moving to the later part of the afternoon. Delegates will be offered the opportunity to provide their own input as to how they see entertainment and social media developing in the next 20 years with the session moderated by Richard Brinkman, head of sport at KantarSport. The day promises to be one of the key events of 2011 and many senior executives have already booked their place to be part of 20YS and to share their views on the future of sport. The Live Lounge area of the event will feature an 'Interviews' area where senior executives will be asked for their opinions and comments on the latest trends in the sports industry and the interviews will then be posted on the event website.
