The first edition of Global Sports Week will be held from 5 to 7 February 2020 at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris, under the High Patronage of the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron, and UNESCO, with support of the Paris City Council, the French Ministry of Sports and other public and private partners.

The Global Sports Week is the new annual event in the world of sport bringing together sport international leaders and other influencers to exchange, move and build together the future of sport.

For its first edition, the Global Sports Week will bring together 1100 participants of the highest level, coming from over 40 countries.

The content of the event reflects the place of sport at the intersection of business and society, highlighting its unique potential to drive positive impact in a purpose-driven world. The proposed content is part of an innovative and disruptive approach in order to go beyond the boundaries of the traditional sports ecosystem to include broader themes and contributors under the banner of ‘Making Business with Purpose.’

In this context, issues bringing together sport, business and society, within the framework of five global business and societal shifts, have been identified. These represent key areas of change and opportunity for sport and business, and are presented in the programme as cross-cutting hashtags:
