Social Media & Sport Summit comes to London

Leading online sports community, The UK Sports Network (UKSN) is set to bring its Social Media and Sport Summit to London next week.   This event brings together delegates and speakers from a diverse range of sports business from around the UK and even Germany and is being supported by Field Fisher Waterhouse LLP, FC Business and Colorset UVI Ltd.

“The Social Media & Sport Summit is a great opportunity for those involved in the business of sport to find out more about social media in sport with some great case studies and lessons from the likes of Liverpool FC and Lotus Racing,” explains UKSN founder Daniel McLaren.

“The UK is playing catch up when it comes to utilising the best in social media for sports professionals and our aim is to help everyone achieve their aims by developing a unified online presence and openly helping each other move forward to make the UK sports community one of the most progressive, most interactive and most envied in the world.” 

Social Media is still seen with some scepticism and a lack of full understanding in the UK as we come to grips with the changes in how the world communicates. Whether it be fans connecting with their clubs or businesses with customers times have changed for everyone.  

The event will bring out case studies showing how organisations including Lotus Racing, The NBA and Liverpool FC have utilised social media, why and what obstacles they have, and still, face.  Legal implications are another concern often raised.  Speakers from top law firm Field Fisher Waterhouse will talk about ‘a legal perspective on social media’ and ‘digital media, brand protection and dealing with counterfeiters’. 

There will be ample opportunity to relate the topics discussed to your own organisation and soak in the information at various times…. events should be like social media, not just a one-way conversation, and this is where we are different.

Delegates already signed up include;  Coventry City FC, NBA, Cake, Neuland + Herzer, The Football League, Tottenham Hotspur FC, The FA, Revolution Sports Marketing, Chelsea FC, BBC, Football Aid…. and many more!

After a fantastic first event in Nottingham which brought in new elements of interaction, great speakers and a fantastic mixture of delegates.  People who attended the event said of it;

“I attend at least a couple of events a week, many of them Social Media orientated, and I have to say yesterday was one of the best I have been to so far. The speakers were excellent.”

“Great event this morning, well done. Good speakers, good interaction, good networking. Spot on.”

“Ryan and Andy have come back enthused by what was discussed.  So well done, and I think you’ve just made my job even harder now!!”

“Great to meet you yesterday and thank you so much for inviting me to such a fantastic event. So much useful information, my head is still buzzing! ”
