In partnership with the Abu Dhabi Sports Council
Over the last five, years the UAE has hosted several global elite sports events, bolstering the country's domestic success and enhancing its international identity. In the coming years, the UAE will continue to augment domestic sports participation and infrastructure, engage international fans, and expand media coverage while navigating critical challenges that include gender equality and injury-related health risks. As a timely precursor to the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, this conference brings together international sports luminaries, sports business magnates, and top government officials to identify the risks, keys to success, and the legacies of mega sports events in the UAE.
