Celebrating SPIN 2020
SPIN Summit 2020 was Own the Podium’s first ever virtual SPIN Summit and its largest attended with 883 registrants. The theme of the conference was: Return to Health & Performance, and was co-hosted with Canadian Sport Institute Calgary. Of the 883 registrants, 38% indicated that it was their first time attending, 14% have attended 2 prior Summit’s and 48% attended 3+ events and 89% of people rated the overall conference experience as good to excellent.
During SPIN Summit 2020 two Town Halls were conducted with one specifically focused on Sport Scientist Canada updates. Feedback on the Town Hall presentation indicated that it ‘Exceeded Expectations’ and one individual commented: “The productivity that has emerged from the HPAC is impressive. The targeted groups have provided a focused and collaborative work towards specific projects elevating impact of our work”.
A major highlight from the Summit was the kick-off Athlete Panel entitled Taking the Risk. The athletes set the stage for an outstanding Summit with 42% of attendees indicating that it ‘Exceeded their Expectations’, and commented “Very powerful contributions from athletes, well moderated!” If you weren’t able to attend the Town Hall or Athlete presentation, please click on the link attached to view the recorded sessions.
