Where Sports and Business meet the next Generation.
7th Impulse Summit: 5th - 6th of November 2024
In our interactive platform, we regularly unite more than 250 leaders from in and around the industry with 60 selected Global Talents. Our Global Talents are invited to Switzerland for a 5-day program ending with the Impulse Summit, in which our experts and Global Talents challenge the status quo of the sports industry in interactive formats.
As always, we aim to create a platform for intergenerational, international, and interdisciplinary dialogue, where participants can exchange ideas, share experiences, and create meaningful connections.
