Hit or Miss? How to Make a Hit Sporting Product
On May 29th, Logan & Partners managing partner, Kelly Logan, together with Richard Tattershaw from Sport Hit Factory delivered an interactive workshop on “Hit or Miss? How to Make a Hit Sporting Product” at the International Sports Chamber of Commerce in Lausanne.
The event gathered 26 participants who learned about creating a sport product/ event that will be fit-for the market. Additionally, they gained insights into how to create value from intellectual property rights and whether Sports Federations can ban players/ officials for playing in ‘unofficial competitions’.
Using an engaging format and delivery, the workshop revealed the secrets of smash hits such as Tough Mudder, Red Bull Crashed Ice, Big Bash and the All Blacks. The participants worked in groups to develop their own hit sporting format and learned how to start thinking like the Market.
Kelly Logan, together with Intellectual Property lawyer Georg Punkenhofer, covered the legal aspects of creating a Sporting Hit.
Richard Tattershaw (ex FIH Commercial Director) and Matthew Osman (ex FIBA Commercial Director) from the Sport Hit Factory also shared their experiences of creating sporting hits for hockey and basketball.
