In just a matter of decades, technology has fundamentally changed how we analyze, follow and enjoy the sports we all love.

Founded in 2013, the On Deck Conference is an annual event series designed to shine a spotlight on new and emerging technology that is transforming the ways that we follow, enjoy, analyze and understand sports.

A full-day of programming at the 2015 On Deck Conference will seek to identify the key trends and technologies -- emerging from both industry incumbents as well as emerging startup companies – that will reshape the sports industry in the years ahead.
