Global sport business leaders gear up for Leaders Week

The world’s leaders in sport business are gearing up to gather for this year’s Leaders Week in London. The four-day event, which will run from 26 to 29 September 2022, will bring over 3,000 sports professionals together to share knowledge and get insights from the most influential people in sport.

What’s on at Leaders Week

Leaders Week offers a selection of different insightful events each day – ranging from invite-only masterclasses to live podcasts, connecting people through a series of topic-led communities and intelligence. Sports presenter and retired British sprinter, Jeanette Kwakye (MBE) has been confirmed as event host, alongside a selection of speakers. From global rights holders, brands and broadcasters, the speakers will deliver opinions and visions for leadership lessons, monetisation models, digital culture, fandom and much more. Listed speakers currently include Vice President of Global Sports Video at Amazon, Marie Donoghue, and Finnish Managing Director of Television and Marketing Services at the International Olympic Committee, Timo Lumme.

Leaders in Sports Awards

Taking place on the 27 September, the Leaders in Sports Awards will celebrate the companies and individuals who have made a real difference in the sports industry across the last 12 months. The awards have been split into five ‘Company’ categories, three ‘Purpose’ categories and the Leaders Under 40 Award. Travel Places Managing Director, Matt Warren, joined a panel of senior industry experts to judge nominations for two awards and we are thrilled to be sponsoring the Sustainability award for the second year running, which seeks to recognise those who have committed to making a long-term impact and used sport as a vehicle to promote and combat environmental and ecological issues within society.

Sport and travel are both very much a force for good and at Travel Places we want to help clients make better decisions, reduce emissions and encourage working with suppliers that share the same values and beliefs that we do.
