ThinkSport partners with Global Sports Week Paris

ThinkSport is excited to announce its partnership with the 2021 edition of Global Sports Week Paris. The event is expected to bring together more than 10,000 sports leaders, cultural changemakers, athletes, activists and emerging talents, who will discuss accelerating trends, such as digital transformation, as well as the growing business with purpose movement at the heart of sport. The 2021 edition will take place primarily online from 1 to 5 February 2021, with speakers linked live across studio settings in Paris and five future Olympic host cities – Beijing, Tokyo, Milan, Dakar and Los Angeles. Where local health conditions allow, physical events will also be organised. 

Highlights are set to include Le Tremplin Invest Finals, Europe’s biggest event for investors to connect to sportstech start-ups, whose finalists raised 3 million Euros at Global Sports Week in 2020. 

The event will also see the return of Global Sports Week’s Young Sports Makers - a group of talented under-25s selected from around the world with a mission to shape and shake up debates with international sports leaders. Meanwhile, Les Trophees Sporsora, France’s premier sports business awards, will be integrated with the programme.

The first multi-country edition of Global Sports Week is billed as a platform to shape a new, post-COVID future for sport between business and society. UNESCO, IPC, adidas and WFSGI are among those backing the event, which is organised under the high patronage of Mr Emmanuel Macron, President of the French Republic.
