What is SportNXT?

SportNXT is an innovative sports thought leadership summit hosted annually in Melbourne that gathers global leaders from all sectors of the sports industry to create, share and connect. The summit is forward facing, identifying the threats and opportunities confronting the sports industry and providing a nursey for business networking, cutting edge innovation and sector shaping ideas. The two-day live conference features an unrivalled group of domestic and global leaders, both in-person and virtually, providing delegates and partners extraordinary insights from – and access to – the most credentialed voices in world sport and business. The third day of the summit is reserved for a series of site visits exploring Melbourne’s array of world-class infrastructure. Melbourne, the internationally recognised major event destination, is a natural backdrop for a global sporting summit, as the world’s only city to host both a Formula 1 Grand Prix and a Tennis Grand Slam.

The next decade will see every major sporting event cycle through the Asia-Pacific region and Australia is uniquely placed to play a major role.

Our goal is to create a platform for sports businesses to share their story with a global audience.
