There continues to be more and more activity at the intersection of sports and technology, from athletic training, to live streaming, to fan engagement, to stadium advancements, and so much more.

That’s why we’re excited to announce GeekWire’s second annual Sports Tech Summit on June 21-22 at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. Early-bird tickets are now on sale, and we have room for just 400 attendees, so make sure to go here to secure your spot at this one-of-a-kind event that brings together the stars of sports with the stars of tech.

Co-hosted with the Seattle Sounders FC and Eiger Marketing, this event brings together dozens of leading thinkers in data science, sports marketing, virtual reality, eSports, wearables and more for an informative and action-packed event that includes evening cocktail receptions, fireside chats, interactive panels, live demos, a Sounders match and much more.

We’re expecting a bigger event this year with more room for attendees at CenturyLink Field and another group of sports tech leaders joining us on stage.

The action begins on Wednesday, June 21, with a pre-party leading up to the 7:30 p.m. Sounders FC match against Orlando City.

Then the following day we’ll have several fireside chats and panel discussions on stage as we hear from folks like NFL COO Tod Leiweke, League of Legends co-founder Brandon Beck, SeatGeek co-founder Russ D’Souza, ESPN senior writer John Clayton, and others soon to be announced.

Our inaugural event last year drew more than 300 attendees and featured fascinating talks from folks like L.A. Clippers owner Steve Ballmer and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin, as well as valuable networking between attendees who worked in a variety of fields and traveled near and far to experience a day full of sports tech innovation in one of country’s top technology cities.
