The broadcaster and publication are working together to create a full-day, free-to-attend sports tech event in November


Broadcast TECH is partnering with BT Sport on its forthcoming free-to-attend Sports Tech Innovation Forum, which is being held on Thursday 22 November.

BT Sport is hosting the event at its studio (pictured above) at its cutting-edge production centre in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford.

The studio, which is home to many of BT Sport’s flagship sports productions, can comfortably seat 140 delegates. BT Sport is also providing a number of rooms for break-out sessions including roundtable discussions to continue the debate around some of the hottest topics of the day.
