The Hub

Seeing technology in action is often far more instructive than simply reading about it so we have introduced The Hub. This is a video portal, which anyone can view but only organizations entering the awards can upload to – a benefit which is completely free.

The Hub gives entrants a great chance to explain what they do in more depth and to a much wider audience.

Past winners tell us that winning a Sports Technology Award makes a very real, tangible commercial difference to their organization. Given the excellent calibre of entries we receive, we wanted to expand this ethos – The Hub is our answer to this.

It is important that The Hub is also entertaining to viewers so submissions will be moderated, prior to publication. Content needs to reflect this so anything overtly long (c.3 minutes or more) or commercial (selling rather than informing) will be rejected – you have been warned!
