GSWPARIS 2022

After two long years, more than 2,000 key actors from the world of sport came back together in their new global capital, in an intimate and convivial setting at the Accor Arena. In total, 20,000 digital participants coming from 98 countries attended the events in Paris, Los Angeles and online, centred around 1 key theme – Better VS Bigger: Growing sport in the age of responsibility.

GSWPARIS 2020

In 2020, GSW Paris was launched as the first international forum for sport in France. The inaugural edition of Global Sports Week gathered over 2,000 leaders from across the global ecosystem of sport, at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris. With a new, unique positioning between business and society, the forum was structured under the theme :

« Making business with purpose: For a more innovative and sustainable future for sport ».

GSWPARIS 2021

Due to the global coronavirus crisis, the second edition of GSWParis had to be completely reimagined. The GSW team adapted to the situation by developing an innovative hybrid-forum concept – which was managed from a central studio on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower. Consequently, GSWParis became the first multi-country forum for sport: mixing physical and digital experiences, and present in continental hubs in all 6 future Olympic host cities – Tokyo, Beijing, Paris, Milan, Dakar and Los Angeles. The event was a great success with over 20,000 visitors connecting to the digital platform created for the forum. The 2021 event was structured around the highly-relevant theme : « Reinvention in action! ».
