It’s a year full of large sporting events held in the UK (Women’s Euros, the Commonwealth Games, Rugby League World Cup + many more).

Across two panels of experts, we’ll discuss the impact of large sporting events on local communities.

Panel 1 - After the success of the Women’s Euro’s and the Rugby League World Cup set to host the Men’s and Women’s Finals on the same day for the first time, it’s been a great year for women’s sport and British sport in general. We’ll take a look at how this increases the numbers of people getting involved in sport at a grassroots level from school children right through to open-age and the positive effects this can have on physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Panel 2 – Large Sporting Events can often bring supporters from all over the world into the region, we’ll discuss with experts from the Hospitality and Retail sectors as to how these events affect their industries. We’ll also take a look at the legacy and long-term impact past events have had on local communities.
