Where world’s top sports organizations and corporations discuss the hottest topics

In 2014, the Sport Innovation Summit (SiS) started in Mexico as a conference focusing on innovations in sports and its surrounding industries.
Even in the world of sports, innovation cannot be executed by a single organization, and an ecosystem needs to be found in collaboration with various industries and businesses.
At SiS, we introduce trends occurring around the globe and provide the “opportunity” to discuss such trends.In 2017, SiS also started its trail in Paris.
Leading professionals of sports and businesses gathered and engaged in heated discussions.And now, marking its third hosting country, SiS will be held in Tokyo this November.
This 2-day event will surely play an important part in maximizing the role as the hosting country for the coming 2020 Olympics. We welcome you to 2 days of exciting sessions with world-class speakers and connecting with sports innovations, here in Tokyo!
