Where We Started...
On 17 and 18 November 2020, IIFX proudly hosted its first major event, the International Virtual Conference and Expo, Innovative Pathway to the Sports and Entertainment Industries “New Normal”. We brought together an impressive array of diverse sports and entertainment industry professionals and organizations focusing on the common challenge of adapting and innovating health safety, security, operations, and management into a possible new fan experience and management paradigm.
