Commenting on the partnership, the head of the Fladgate Sports Business Group, James Earl, said:
“We are delighted to support SportsPro Live 2017 as a gold partner. SportsPro Live is now recognised as one of the leading conferences in the international sports sector for anyone who is involved in the ‘engine room’ of sports businesses. It is a true reflection of the business of sport and, as a forum, it is also representative of how the Fladgate Sports Business Group identifies and approaches the sport sector. Today, sport is currently experiencing some of the fastest and greatest changes it has ever known, on and increasingly off the pitch: understanding what is driving this growth, knowing who is behind it and also looking to where latest trends are developing across the business of sport are all critical questions for anyone involved in sport to consider, and answer. What we like about SportsPro Live is that it will attract speakers and attendees of serious calibre in a high-quality environment where these questions, and many others, will be analysed in depth. This makes SportsPro Live 2017 a natural partner for the Fladgate Sports Business Group.”
