Nielsen Sports UK – The Hot Topics

Over the past 10 months, we’ve observed, analysed and investigated a selection of key industry themes that have helped moved the dial in sponsorship throughout the year. At the beginning of 2017, we kicked things off by launching our Commercial Trends in Sports & Entertainment, which provided a snapshot of the major developments across the sports and entertainment world – not least that global sponsorship spend would reach US$62 billion and media rights spend $45 billion in 2017.

Our summaries of the hottest talking points and happenings so far this year has been matched by opinions and perspectives from our team of experts – key takeaways and solutions designed to allow you to capitalise on what’s coming next.
