GW-SportsTech-320x50-v1Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber. Former Yahoo president and San Francisco Giants owner Jeff Mallett. NFL CIO Michelle McKenna-Doyle. And Super Bowl champion Doug Baldwin Jr. of the Seattle Seahawks.

Those are just a few of the speakers who will join us in Seattle on July 12-13 for the first-ever GeekWire Sports Tech Summit.

GW-SportsTech-5hx8h-v1-comcastLove sports and technology? Or want to get ahead in this rapidly changing industry? This new event, presented by Comcast and co-hosted with the Seattle Sounders FC and Eiger Marketing, is just for you.

We’re bringing together dozens of leading thinkers in data science, sports marketing, virtual reality, wearables and more for an informative and action-packed event that includes evening cocktail receptions, fireside chats, interactive panels, live demos, rooftop deck parties, a Sounders match and much more.

A limited number of tickets are available for this exclusive event, which will take place at multiple venues throughout Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood, with the main conference hosted at Safeco Field on July 13. Tickets are now on sale and you can purchase yours by going here.

Early-bird rates expire on May 25, and given the limited capacity and early interest we do expect a sellout.

We’re fascinated by the cross section of sports and technology, one of the reasons why we launched a sports tech vertical on GeekWire a year ago.  Now, we’re excited to hear from some of the biggest names in sports and technology discussing how new innovations are transforming the games we love to watch and play.
