Watch the highlights from the 2018 Sports Business Awards …
Sport isn’t all about glitz and glamour. It’s about hard work, preparation and dedication. It’s about the organisation, planning and creativity of teams behind the scenes, which allows extraordinary things to take place on the field of play.
The Sports Business Awards were conceived to celebrate the hard work and achievements of individuals and teams who make sporting success possible: the organisers; the suppliers; the designers; the administrators,; the advisors; the technologists; the marketers and the companies who ensure that the business of sport, in all its various and myriad forms, happens successfully.
Nick Bitel, Chairman of Sport England said“Striving for the best, learning from examples of excellence and the positive reinforcement of peer recognition has always helped sport to improve which is why I am so pleased to be able to support the Sports Business Awards”
Jane Nickerson, Swim England CEO, said:“The Sports Business Awards are an important opportunity to recognise and thank all those who help to make sport happen. As someone who has been involved in swimming throughout their life, I understand what it takes and was thrilled to be asked to be involved.”
