Hosted by MKTG and Ministry of Sport, the 2019 Women in Sport Summit delivered exceptional content from a plethora of first-class speakers whilst giving unprecedented networking opportunities for all attendees.

With help from our major partner DWF, Australia’s premier sports law practice, we provided a platform to discuss the growth of women’s AFL, research into the value of women’s sport, the rise of women in the Big Bash League and the future of women in sport, which were all delivered for the first time at the summit, giving attendees first access to the latest information and research available in the Australian sporting landscape.
