Sports and tech industry events postponed to 2022

Organizers of Australia’s Sports Innovation Week and SportNXT Global Summit have announced that each event has been postponed to 2022.

Amid continued uncertainty over interstate travel, Johann Odou, director of Sports Tech World, blamed “the current COVID-19 situation in Australia” for the postponement of Sports Innovation Week, advising ” We are committed to hosting a global ‘in-person’ class, which will maximize participation from across the country and benefit the sports technology and innovation community.

“The decision to move the event to 2022 will ensure we can deliver on this vision.

“We are grateful for the great support from all of our event partners and look forward to bringing Sports Innovation Week to Queensland for the first time next year.”

Odou went on to note “It continues to be an exciting time for sport in Queensland, fueled by the recent announcement of the 2032 Olympics, and we look forward to playing our part in contributing to the development of the sector through the organization of this annual event over the next three years.

Sports Innovation Week was due to be held on the Gold Coast from September 1-3.

Originally scheduled for November 17-19, organizers of the inaugural SportNXT World Summit have been rescheduled for April 6-7, 2022, saying “(this) aligns with the Australian Grand Prix date change”.
