Brief About the Event

Organized by Aspire Zone, the 8th edition of the “ASPIRE4SPORT” Congress and Exhibition is going to take place in London, England on the 6th and 7th of October 2017.

Since its creation in 2010, the event has aimed to create networking opportunities for European and Qatari sport industry professionals and as the world's leading financial center for international business and commerce, London serves as the perfect place to add another chapter to the successful history of the B2B event.

Having reached a significant milestone in its socio-economic development, Qatar’s strategic roadmap, as outlined in the Qatar National Vision 2030, and its winning the right to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ provide Qatar with a chance to make amazing progress towards its long-term goals. Qatar’s rapid progress will be powered by individuals and businesses in both established and emerging private sector industries and by taking 20 high-profile Qatari entities to London, ASPIRE4SPORT creates a unique opportunity for British and international companies to connect with Qatari decision makers representing the Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC), the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), the Qatar Football Association (QFA), Qatar Airways, Katara Hospitality, Qatar Rail or Kahramaa.

The second day of this year’s event is also going to give the participants the opportunity to attend the “2nd Aspire-Tech Conference” that will focus on topics around the theme “Analytics and Sports”. Besides a number of presentations, there will a high-level panel discussion featuring speakers from leaders from the field of technology and data management.

Like in the previous year, when Amsterdam ArenA showcased the event, the 2017 edition is also going to take place at a prestigious sports venue: Stamford Bridge, home ground of Chelsea FC. The famous stadium has been the host to England international matches, FA Cup Finals, Charity Shield games and numerous other sports, such as cricket, rugby union, speedway, greyhound racing, baseball and American football.

On October 6 and 7, it will showcase ASPIRE4SPORT’s business platform and in parallel, Aspire Academy will be hosting the “Aspire Academy Global Summit” on ‘Football Performance & Science’ at the same venue. For the fourth time after Paris in 2014, Berlin in 2015 and Amsterdam in 2016, the event gathers the world’s best youth football experts from 50 international clubs and federations in order to discuss the issues and developments that are shaping football training methodology around the world.
