The panel schedule may be subject to change due to speaker availability.
Unfortunately, due to our speakers being called into urgent matters this panel will be rescheduling as a standalone session next week. We will update all attendees to confirm the timings and dates shortly.
This panel will examine and debate what the future of dispute resolution looks like in sport drawing on developments from the wider world of alternative disputes resolution as well as recent cases in which the civil courts had to adjudicate on procedural and structural issues in sports arbitration.
While sport is not immune from the problems we see in society, sports can undoubtedly play a significant role in highlighting important issues and being a positive influence on society. However, recent history has shown the sports sector still has a lot of work still to do when it comes to addressing issues around inclusion and diversity. Our panel will explore how sports can take a more unified and comprehensive approach to dealing with issues of discrimination as well as highlight some of the good rules, policies and practices that are already being used by some organisations in and out of sport.
Our panel will discuss and debate how changes to legislation and regulations in different parts of the world impacts the ability of sport organisations to use and commercialise data and how the rights and protections given to individuals (e.g. fans and athletes) influences their ability to run their organisations and exploit commercial opportunities.
As the sports industry continues to grow and mature as a sector there is an increasing understanding that sports organisations must evolve to address the increasingly complex issues of sports integrity. This panel will discuss how sports organisations can create a joined up approach to best address the issues from athlete welfare, safeguarding, anti-doping, match-fixing and anti-corruption with a finite amount of resources.
Our panel will discuss and compare what has been happening in the corporate world and see how traditional sports and esports are evolving including board structures, organising and hosting events, stakeholders representation, diversity and inclusions, environment and other social considerations.
Our panel will explore how the growing emphasis being placed on investors to ensure their investments meet Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) standards will impact the sports sector. The panel will also examine and debate how considerations around financial controls in sport may impact investments and the current financial and corporate model of sport.
Our panel will explore the commercial, legal and regulatory issues associated with NFTs and Fan Tokens and look at what issues may be coming in the near and distant future.
