Propelify Innovation Festival powered by TechUnited New Jersey will be back from October 5th - October 9th, usually the event takes place in Hoboken, New Jersey, but this year the Propelify conference will be held virtually. This year our CEO Ishveen Anand will be hosting an athlete panel with Olympic gold medalist Abby Dunkin and top Powerlifter Leah Casciano.
Every four years, the whole world joins together to celebrate the talented athletes who participate in the Olympic games. This year, the 2020 Olympics were postponed to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. This delay creates a unique opportunity for brands to launch long-term campaigns to drive continuous sales growth across both the summer and winter games. Who should the focus be for these campaigns? Olympic athletes.
The Coronavirus pandemic has taken the sports world by storm, and athletes now have an unprecedented amount of time on their hands leading to an increase in the number of athletes on TikTok. Some are taking on new hobbies -see Giannis Antetokounmpo learning the guitar and Cody Zeller learning to cook and play the guitar (well, trying to). Some are doing their best to stay in shape at home- nice setup, Serge Ibaka! But most of all, athletes are more active and engaging on social media than ever before. The most interesting takeaway from this uptick in social media activity has been the increase in athletes on TikTok.
