Major Events Summit 2020 – The Virtual Meeting Place for the Sports and Events Community

We’re less than a month away from MEI’s flagship Major Events Summit, now re-imagined as a virtual event. 

Major Events Summit brings together decision-makers and influencers involved in supplying the world’s most prolific sports and performance events. Participants learn from and network with senior representatives from headline events during a curated programme that gives market insights across a broad topic base from customer & fan experience, logistics & operations to technology & innovation.

2020’s event will be held online in response to COVID-19 and is set to give the global audience a fresh take on how sporting venues, festival organisers and sports rights holders are adapting their business models along with applying more stringent health & safety procedures to their events.

July’s Major Event Virtual Summit has already gained significant traction with sign-ups ranging from Lord’s to Baku F1 Circuit; British Swimming to Ukrainian Premier League; the International Pentathlon Federation to the PGA Tour. Speaker confirmations include representatives from Rugby League World Cup, Milan/Torino Winter Games 2026; FIFA World Cup 2026; Euros and many more are being confirmed daily.

Uniquely, there will be a range of interactive opportunities such as networking groups, workshops and the ability to ask questions of presenters: allowing you to be involved in the content and engage with the community rather than simply be a passive listener. We will even be inviting you to provide us with a 1-minute video introduction of who you are as part of your registration!
