Belgian expertise in sports technology
Belgium has many top athletes, but are you aware of Belgian expertise in sports technology? It is a sector we can be proud of and one that is expanding rapidly.
Our country has no fewer than 100 companies specialising in this sector. They range from event organisation, security aspects and image recording, to start-ups developing performance aids.
The pandemic has hit the sports world hard, but it has also allowed the most creative to break through. This has somehow accelerated the development of certain sectors such as remote production for sports reporting, augmented reality, and other virtual elements that have offered sports content to TV channels. Once sports activities resumed in real life, measures had to be put in place to allow spectators to attend safely. And there too, Belgian companies were involved.
Whether it's media technology, sports infrastructure, sports assistance or access control, these Belgian companies are on a roll.
To support their momentum, the Agoria Sports & Entertainment Technology Club promotes links between the world of technology and the world of sports and also assists these companies in expanding their market around the world.
This is a jewel that Belgium is determined to sell internationally.
