Venue technology and fan engagement take centre stage at first Major Events Summit

Major Events International (MEI) are focusing on the theme of driving fan engagement through technology at this year’s inaugural Major Events Summit, taking place in London on 26th and 27th October. Demonstrated by the high levels of fan engagement during this year’s Rugby World Cup, this is an area of growing interest and prominence within the sports industry as organisations look to enhance fan experience and engagement as well as looking at the ‘Return on Investment’ from an increasing range of innovative capabilities. 

The aim of the Major Events Summit is to provide the Major Events community with a highly interactive and profile-enhancing opportunity. With a unique mix of attendees from leading edge suppliers to sports and venue key officials, round tables and panels will allow for detailed discussions and new relationships to be formed.

The first day of the Summit on 26th October will focus on Safety and Security for major sporting events and is followed by the MEI awards and sports legend dinner – the awards themselves will be produced by Touch of Ginger who have recently produced the Rugby World Cup medals. The Event Services and Venue Operations day on 27th will focus on the use of technology and best practice generally when running and supplying into events. Speakers on day two include Spanish start up Mobile Media Content and Olympic sponsor ATOS Origin.

Commenting on the event, MEI’s CEO Dennis Mills said:

The Major Events Summit is an opportunity for our joint supplier and buyer community to meet, identify requirements and suitable solutions as well as sharing lessons learned.  In a format which will encourage maximum attendee participation, this new “must-attend” annual gathering of major sporting events and venue professionals will be kept to 100 attendees to allow for an intimate highly networked environment.
