Sport England CEO Jennie Price and triathlon champion Chrissie Wellington are among the keynote speakers at the Sports Summit 2015 – held at the KIA Oval on London on 4 June.

With the strapline “Fit for the Future; face the challenges of tomorrow”, the one-day event will act as a meeting place for decision makers and touch on a number of topics affecting the sports industry – including how tech can be harnessed to advance operations and the role of major events in securing sustainability.

As part of this, Hitesh Patel, head of international sport and major events at the DCMS will run a workshop on the government's Gold Framework, alongside Simon Morton, UK Sport’s ?director of major events and international relations.

There will also be a talk from Dr Justin Varney, national lead for adult health and wellbeing at Public Health England, who will be discussing the relationship between sport and the public health agenda.

Organised by the Sports and Recreation Alliance (SRA), the summit will also see the launch of a significant new initiative by SRA.

Emma Boggis, SRA chief executive said: “We will be using the event to launch a major new programme of work we will be delivering here at the Alliance which will tackle the issue of ensuring the sector is ‘fit for the future’.

“This year’s theme reflects feedback from our 2015 member survey which tells us that members want the Alliance to help them think about how they can rise and be equal to the challenges which they will face in the next few years.”
