London, Monday 24th October 2022: Today, Sky Media, the advertising arm of Sky has announced an inaugural ‘Innovation Sprint’ that will take place at its Osterley HQ on 26th and 27th January 2023.  

Sky, a business built on innovation has a track record of both market-changing consumer products (Sky+, HD, Sky Glass) and AdTech capabilities (AdSmart, Sky AdVance, Web Attribution and upcoming Smart Sponsorships).

The two-day ‘Sprint’ will be attended by the hottest industry talent who will be nominated by media agency leadership teams. The event will be a combination of keynotes sharing inspiring thought leadership on innovation, an inside look into Sky’s processes and product roadmap for consumers and advertisers; and a competitive brief for delegates to collaborate and build ideas for future advertising solutions.  

The winning teams will take part in the follow-up process as the ideas are scoped and built out, as well as winning individual Sky VIP experiences. 

As a key component of the new initiative, Sky is inviting innovative AdTech companies and start-ups to pitch their ad technology to be part of the ‘Sprint’ itself. Up to five shortlisted companies will then present to the delegates at the event with the potential for the products/capabilities to be featured in the ideas that are generated.  

Sky Media is committing to turning the best ideas – generated during the ‘Sprint’ – into proof of concepts with the potential to incorporate the technology in future product launches. Submissions are open from today until 24th November 2022 via https://www.skymedia.co.uk/innovation-sprint-form/. The invite is open to all ad innovative tech companies, from content creation and production to data analysis and AI – and everything in between.
