New York-based Rolapp will follow in the footsteps of previous S&T: The Conference Closing Keynote Address speakers Malcolm Speed, Chief Executive of the International Cricket Council, Marius Schneider, Head of Information Services at FIFA and Doug Gardner, FIFA World Cup Programme Managing Director at IT provider and sponsor Avaya.
Formerly Business Development Director at NBC Universal, Rolapp, a graduate of Harvard University, has been responsible for bringing the operations of NFL.com in-house as well as managing the NFL’s traditional and media businesses. He also oversees the NFL’s partnerships with Apple, Sprint, Sirius Satellite Radio, Amazon, Yahoo! and others while advising NFL clubs on various media issues.
Rolapp will explain how technology is being used to grow the NFL’s appeal globally as well as to enhance the sport to its domestic fanbase, no doubt touching upon some of the areas highlighted by Hank Adams, CEO of Sportvision in his own Afternoon Opening Address.
Now in its fourth year, Sport and Technology: The Conference 2008 is bringing together its usual strong array of leading sports properties and technology/digital solutions providers to discuss what's hot and what's not in the fast-paced world of technology and sport.
