Our partners are vital in making The Sports Technology Annual Review possible. They are all experts in their chosen area, which is evident from the insights they provide in their chapters.
We select partner companies very carefully; only brands which have demonstrable knowledge and success are approached by us to work on The Review. Consequently we are proud to work with: Capgemini, Engage Digital Partners, The English Institute of Sport (EIS), HOK, Relayto and Sportradar.
If your organization is interested in authoring a chapter next year and can demonstrate the necessary authority, there are financial and value-in-kind opportunities available. Partner brands enjoy a wealth of opportunities to leverage their input and The STA Group works hard to give value via branding, marketing and event production before, during and after publication of The Review.
If you would like to discuss how we can work together, please contact us.
