From May 8 to 9, Düsseldorf will be the stage of a one-of-a-kind event: SportsInnovation. Designed as an international platform for innovation in the world of sports, the event will be held by Messe Düsseldorf, in conjunction with the DFL Deutsche Fußball Liga. All guests can expect two thrilling days, packed with lively panel discussions, new technological trends, compelling presentations, live demos, and, of course, various possibilities to soak up and transfer knowledge, thereby creating synergies and forming new ties. Several weeks prior to the official kick-off, a first list of exciting partners having confirmed their participation has taken form – and the list keeps growing every day.
Altogether, there are five pillar topics that SportsInnovation will be built around: Broadcasting, Match Analysis, Digital Services, Stadium Experience, and Matches & Tournaments with the expectation that the best of the best, the leading players on the market, will attend the event to share their experience and knowledge. The list includes the Gold-Sponsor of SportsInnovation deltatre Group as well as well-known global brands such as Sony, Canon, Dolby or SAP. In addition, there will also be a high density of specialized, innovative partners, such as LawoAG, a Rastatt-based company that designs and manufactures pioneering network, control, audio and video technology for broadcast and post production, the Belgian company EVS Solutions, manufacturers of live outside broadcast digital video production systems, ChyronHego, an international corporation for real-time data visualization and in-arena tracking technology or Kinexon, a Munich-based company gathering and processing fitness and tactics data for the integration into live broadcasts.

Messe Düsseldorf and the Düsseldorf Congress Sports & Event (DCSE) are globally active and leading organisers of B2B fairs and large events. The combination of both guarantees the required expertise for making SportsInnovation a top-class business event for high-performance sports. The main asset of the event will be its “live” component: live matches in the arena will give all visitors the chance to witness live tests and a true hands-on experience that will make sure that innovation will not only be a topic that is talked about in theory, but one that can be truly experienced. A central stage hosting interesting speakers, presentations in the business suites and of course plenty of opportunities to exchange and network will round out the event.
