13 Israeli Sports Technology Companies Meet with NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL
Group of representatives from 13 Israeli companies visited San Francisco and New York to show the world’s leading companies their innovative sports technology ranging from sensors monitoring athlete performance, real-time video analysis to ways of connecting brands to fans, and more. A delegation comprised of representatives from 13 Israeli companies went to New York and San Francisco last month in order to meet officials from the four leading American sports leagues: Major League Baseball (MLB), the National Hockey League (NHL), the National Basketball Association (NBA), and the National Football League (NFL).
The delegation representatives went to the meetings to present the leagues’ representatives with new and innovative Israeli sports technology. The Israeli delegation members also met with communications industry leaders and investors. The technological innovations presented included sensors used to monitor the activity and performance of athletes (or regular gym goers), real-time video analysis – which can be combined with video games, new ways of creating connection between fans and brands, and more.
The delegation was formed as part of an initiative by the Israel Export Institute, as well as the Israeli Economy Ministry’s representative offices in New York and San Francisco.
