2024 Sporting Heritage Online Conference

The 2024 Sporting Heritage Conference was held as a free online event on Thursday 9th May. Explore this section for the session recordings, information from our conference funder and sponsor, and all the supporting resources from the sporting heritage event of the year!

Background to this year's event: This year's conference was planned as an in-person event but unfortunately due to low ticket sales we made the difficult decision to change the format to an online one. This change in format allowed us to offer the event as FREE to attend.

Changes across the sector: We know how much the sector value getting together in-person but over the past few years we also acknowledge how resources and capacity to support this have reduced, especially following the impact of COVID-19 which has left a lasting change on how we work and how we consume content. It is clear that an in-person conference, with the ticket, travel and accommodation costs that this attracts, does not work for a large proportion of the Sporting Heritage community.
