iSportConnect has launched the first ever global event for the sport industry dedicated to discussing and analysing what web3 will mean for the future of sport and entertainment.
The iSportConnect Web3 Summit, taking place at Emirates Stadium in London on June 28/29, 2022, will be a global gathering to learn, implement and embrace the opportunities web3 is presenting.
Content at the event will be curated for both newcomers to web3, as well as those with a more advanced knowledge of the space, and will bring a sharp focus to exploring best practice, avoiding the hype and understanding market trends as web3 brings new opportunities and efficiencies.
In recent weeks we have seen the likes of Nike and adidas step into the virtual world, with new announcements happening every day. Just yesterday Microsoft took a giant leap towards the metaverse with their acquisition of Activision Blizzard for a whopping $68.7 billion. It is clear that the future of sport could look very different in a short space of time.
iSportConnect has also confirmed the following initial lineup of experts who will be participating as speakers, as well as joining the event Advisory Board:
- Christian Volk – Director of Esports & Gaming, FIFA
- Emma McGuigan – Intelligent Platform Services Lead, Accenture
- Nicolas Vereecke – Investor, BitKraft Ventures
- Alexandre Dreyfus – CEO, Socios
- Fred Antunes – CEO, RealFevr & President, Portuguese Blockchain & Crypto Association
- Nick Rend – Managing Director, Gaming and Esports, NASCAR
- Candice Mudrick – Cloud Gaming Lead, Nvidia
Commenting on the announcement, iSportConnect CEO, Sree Varma said, “We have created the Web3 Summit to drive positive change within the business of sport.”
“There is so much confusion around terms like blockchain, NFTs, the metaverse, DEI and cryptocurrencies. We are aiming to demystify these topics for newcomers whilst providing a platform for experts to drive the industry forward.”
Joe Condon, iSportConnect Commercial Lead added, “Since our first Blockchain Masterclass last year our network has made it clear that there is a disconnect of knowledge and therefore this is the perfect time to bring everyone together and disseminate industry changing projects from the hype.”
