In just the fourth year of existence, the Sports & Fitness Industry Association's Industry Leader Summit reaches sold out status. After reaching full occupancy in early August, the SFIA expanded seating capacity to accomodate industry demand.
“Our goal every year is to give attendees an invigorating, enlightening and empowering summit,” said Tom Cove, SFIA President and CEO. “It’s evident by the overwhelming number of registrations, that we’ve accomplished our goal of making this Summit the ‘Premier Networking’ event in our industry.”
In a world where an athlete's success hinges on milliseconds or millimeters, high-performance improvement and feedback are critical. From sport-specific smart products to state-of-the-art fandom connectivity, the Sports Tech Marketplace dove deep into the innovations for the tenacious world of athletes.
