Unable to bring the global sports industry together in New York this May due to the current pandemic, Leaders is proud to introduce LeadersWeek.direct/, a platform for global sport industry leaders to come together at a time when the world must stay apart. The online event will unite the global sports business community across May 18-21, 2020 to help organizations navigate the longer-term impact of Covid-19 and look ahead to what the future of sport might look like.

Throughout the four-day conference, guests will tune in to daily live streams that will take a comprehensive look at the state of the sports industry – where we are, what the future of live events and broadcasts could look like, what we need from our leaders and teams to make it through this stronger than before and ultimately, what happens when we hit the gas pedal.

Per usual for Leaders events, the stacked speaker list includes executive leaders and decision makers across major global sports leagues, teams, broadcasters and brands within the industry, including:

  • Gary Bettman, Commissioner, NHL
