A very successful Sports Performance Innovation Forum was held on April 28th, 2017 at QBE Stadium. This event had a stellar line up of international and local speakers who are all experts in their respective fields of sports performance innovation.
Business Lab’s contribution to this event was the production of a Forum handout highlighting the Upper Harbour area’s position as a key sport precinct for Auckland. This was created using a combination of interviews, including heads of major sports organisations such as AUT Millennium and Harbour Sport and research. Upper Harbour has a rich infrastructure, strong academic environment and an innovative business community with over 250 sports related businesses that cater for both Olympic and everyday athletes.
As part of our work we also provided a database of all sports related businesses in the area, giving the Upper Harbour Local Board a clear picture of the sector strength and providing a starting point for them to leverage this sector via targeted engagement events or individual contact.
