Teams including SAP, LaLiga and StreamAMG have signed up to seize on a compelling environment in which to do business.
The Regatta offers a unique opportunity for sports business executives to experience a taste of world-renowned Clipper Round the World yacht racing combined with networking among some of the most influential people in the sports industry.
Sree Varma, iSportconnect Founder and CEO, said: “I am very excited about this year’s Regatta. We have assembled an excellent line-up and the day is set to be an unforgettable experience for all involved.”

Rebecca Hopkins – Founder & CEO, Sports Technology Awards
“I took part in the iSportconnect Regatta last year and not only did I thoroughly enjoy it, it proved a highly useful business event.
“New client business was generated as a direct result of the day and I made two new industry contacts, both of whom have been invaluable contributors to subsequent activities my organisation has undertaken for clients.”
David Gibbs – Digital Director, Sky Sports & Sky News
“It was a fantastic day with fantastic weather and fantastic company. There was brilliant team building with a bunch of people I didn’t know very well that I now know a lot better. It was great fun, pretty hard work, but a brilliant day!”
Richard Clarke – Consulting Content Director, Indonesia Liga1
“I had a great day here at the iSportconnect Regatta. It was a good chance to break out from the office and connect with a few people I had never met before.
“You end up running a ship, racing, being competitive and having a few drinks after. It was a nice way to relax and a good way to bond and create teamwork.”
