Hub Spotlight: Music, Gaming, and Sports, hosted by Red Bull Space

Following previous posts regarding the People & Society, Science & Technology, and Business, Media and Communications Hubs, today we would like to share details about the Music, Gaming, and Sports Hub, which is hosted by Red Bull Space at their center in New York.

Red Bull Space, located in the heart of SoHo, is owned by the Red Bull beverage company and is a home for unique and innovative events and ideas, from large scale art installations and photo shoots to private tastemaker events and music acts.

Social Media Week is proud to be working with Red Bull Space and the exciting events that will take place there .


The Music, Gaming, and Sports Hub will focus on entertainment and everything exciting happening in each of those three spaces.

Themes & topics covered may include:

  • Music Culture
  • Music Writing
  • Concerts/Performances
  • Sports/Extreme sports
  • Sports Tournaments
  • Mobile/Social Gaming
  • Massively Multiplayer Online Gaming (MMOG)

This list is by no means comprehensive, but it provides a flavor of some of areas we will be covering.  The agenda will be released in January, however if you would like to suggest themes and topics that we should be covering, please let us know.

If you or your organization is interested in curating a session and helping to shape the programming at the Music, Gaming, and Sports Hub, we would love to hear from you.  Sessions are typically two hours in length and can include a series of talks, a panel, a workshop or seminar.  We encourage our guest curators to think creatively about their sessions and consider designing an experience that moves beyond traditional conference formats.

To submit a session idea, please visit the event registration page and reference which Hub you are interested in, in your application.

If you are interested in sponsorship or media partnership opportunities, we have some really exciting ways for brands to participate  in the experience and contribute to the programming. For more information please contact:

The Music, Gaming, and Sports Hub is brought to you by Social Media Week organizers Crowdcentric & host Red Bull Space.
