20 Years of Sport (20YS) Goes Live

A unique global gathering of the sports industry

20 Years of Sport (20YS) Goes Live In what promises to be one of the most interesting events of 2011, 20 Years of Sport (20YS) was announced today with the website 20ys.sportcal.com going live and ready for registration.

20YS will be a unique global gathering of the sports industry where industry leaders and decision makers will come together to reflect on the last 20 years of sport and discuss and debate what the next 20 years might look like.

20 years ago there was no internet, no e-mail. Fax or telex was the preferred means of communication and sport was largely consumed on terrestrial television.

Today is very different. Live streaming of events over the internet is common place. E-mail is with us 24-7. iPads and smartphones are now more powerful than computers were 20 years ago.

Sport has changed unrecognisably in 20 years and 20YS is the opportunity to review these changes and to get a glimpse into the future.


The event will attract industry leaders and decisions makers from all sectors of the sports industry. Rights holders, broadcasters, brands, sponsors, agencies, government organisations, Olympic committees, cities and service providers will all come together to share their ideas and exchange their knowledge.

Thanks to one of our Principal Partners, Clifford Chance, the event will be held at their state-of-the-art exhibition venue in Canary Wharf.

Book your place today for 20YS and be part of a unique day for the sports industry and find out who has been the most influential person in sport in the last 20 years.
