We’re bringing together key technologists, executives and innovators for a sports and entertainment expo of conversation and insights at the intersection of emerging technology and the sports and entertainment industry. IIFX is seeking input from end users, integrators, and consultants to better understand the challenges and issues facing the sports and entertainment industry.

Between networking sessions, sports and entertainment executives who’ve identified their challenges in the industry can connect with solution providers via speed TECH sessions and on-site scheduled meetings.
Buyers, executives, and decision-makers will attend the Sports & Entertainment Technology Expo, the largest technology expo event in the industry. The FANCENTRIC TECH Expo is a one-stop shop organized around the fan journey, enabling industry leaders and decision-makers to find solutions.
