The first Sport Technology Symposium, hosted by FC Barcelona on Thursday 19 November 2015, was a huge success, where total of 320 professionals from all around the world were able to enjoy talks by representatives of the business and digital departments of different clubs and North American sports franchises.

The event, aimed at professionals from the sector, reasserted the impact of technology on the world of sport.
