The On Deck Conference was held on October 22, 2013. Thanks to everyone who helped us make it a huge success.


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 committed to highlighting the technologies, companies, entrepreneurs and innovators most effectively using technology to enhance all aspects of sports. We aspire for our events to provide a forum for industry executives, entrepreneurs, startups and fans alike to discuss key ideas and innovations, and to identify transformative technologies and companies emerging in the sports space.

The inaugural On Deck Conference, held in New York City in February 2013, brought together over 350 individuals for a full-day event spotlighting ''what's next'' in sports technology. This October 22nd, we're bring On Deck to the Bay Area with On Deck West, a new event in San Francisco with a particular focus on emerging sports technology and high-level perspectives from inspiring leaders and innovators in the field.


There will be no panels or lectures at On Deck West. Instead, we've curated some of the most fascinating voices from industry and startups alike to share their views on how technology is altering the sports landscape.
