  • Bob Rief, Executive Director, SDSI

Keep up or get left behind.  The future of sports is coming, are you going to be there?

What will the new generation of athletes, wear, buy, eat, watch, think?

Forces critical to the sports industry are emerging rapidly, leading to new opportunities — and creating blind spots. Facing an accelerating pace of change, it’s difficult to predict relevant business scenarios and to confidently deploy resources toward long-term plans.

SDSI presents: The Future of Sport Conference in partnership with Attention Span Media’s Sport Fwd Group.  The conference, taking place on January 18th,  will feature talks and panels from expert futurists on topics such as Augmented/Virtual/Mixed Reality, Neurohacking, Sports fans in Gen Z, and Generation Remix: reaching the unreachables, and a keynote presentation by Guy Kawasaki!  This will be held at the amazing Qualcomm Innovation Lab at UCSD’s Atkinson Hall featuring a VR cave, 8k resolution video projector, and a 32 screen TV wall – the venue alone is worth the price of admission! We’re excited to see you there!

Who: SDSI and Attention Span Media


What: The Future of Sport Conference – addressing changes, opportunities and the rapidly evolving relationship between sports and technology.

When: Thursday, January 18th 2018

Where: Qualcomm Innovation Lab at UCSD’s Atkinson Hall

Why: Be ready for what’s to come and stay ahead of the trends.  Join us for the discussion on what the future of sport looks like from all angles, including participation, spectating, communication, nutrition, safety and more.
