Women’s sport is blazing hot right now. With record breaking numbers of fans in the stands and extraordinary sponsorship deals, engagement is set to reach new heights with the upcoming FIFA Women’s World Cup. But traditional sponsorship value is not keeping up with fast paced developments in consumer behaviour, and across the media and sport landscapes. The new women’s sport playbook sees clever partnerships between brands, media and fans that work off a smarter ROI.
Trendspotter ’23 will bring the best minds together to explore the trends shaping values-based decision making. We’ll deep dive into brilliant examples of innovative investment where brands, athletes and sports have climbed the ladder of success together. We’ll shine a light on future opportunities and reveal how brands and media can tap into the hearts and minds of avid fans to create win-win value.
