It's game on Melbourne!

SportNXT organisers have confirmed revised dates and a world-class speaking line-up for the inaugural SportNXT event – a global sport thought and leadership summit – taking place in Australia's sporting capital, Melbourne from 6-8 April 2022.

The city of Melbourne will take centre stage for world sport as the summit takes place during the same week as the rescheduled Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix 2022.

Shaping the future of sport

SportNXT's ambition is "to create the world’s preeminent sports leadership summit, in the globally recognised sporting capital, Melbourne. There has never been a more important time for our industry to connect, engage and inspire," said SportNXT Chairman, Eddie McGuire.

Sport has never been more prominent and valuable nor challenged and disrupted. Sport's ability to unite communities and cultures both locally and globally is more important than ever. The threats facing sport at every level are outweighed only by the opportunities ahead.

"We will bring together Melbourne and Australia’s brightest minds, alongside global sports thought leaders, to tackle the challenges we face and to share ideas about the future of the sports industry,” Mr McGuire added.
