• What we'll do
First SportTechie Netherlands meetup in 2018!

“Passion connected” – that’s the slogan of the 2018 Winter Games. South Korea wants to bring the world the most connected and technologically advanced Games ever. Therefore the Pyeongchang Olympics aim for high-tech gold.
It’s for sure technology has made its entry in the sports and is there to stay. What can we expect for the fans all over the world? And how do the athletes/sports benefit from new technologies in February and March 2018?
“If you don’t embrace technology, you loose”: the question is if technology makes the difference for athletes in winning gold. And how’s the role of tech companies? Is sports really a driving force from a business perspective?
February 1 Sport eXperience likes to address the role of technology in athlete performance. Join the conversation.
