About AthTech23

AthTech, the Athletics Technology Conference, is a meeting place for all the people working behind the scenes to make the sport more enjoyable and easier to manage.

Previous editions focused on standardisation and data flows to help countries digitize the sport and save time. This time, we will focus on how all the data and content can be used, to offer great user experiences to athletes and fans or to improve the economics of the sport.

Come and hear from World Athletics and European Athletics, from member federations, race organisers and service providers, to be at the cutting edge of the sport!

This conference is open to anyone interested in any topic related to technology and sports.

Read what happened in in 2017 (Portugal), 2018 (Spain), and 2021 (Croatia).

The conference will focus on sports data management in general, including:

The common Athletics infrastructure follows the open data paradigm, encouraging the publication of data in standard formats and under permissive re-use licenses. This will bring us successful services and innovative products —made by federations or by third parties— that will affect the sport in a positive way.


AthTech is open to anyone. Among the attendees there will be:

Registration is via the OpenTrack Entry System. 100 places are available.
