Sportel is going back to Asia, in the brand-new destination of Bali, Indonesia, from February 23-24, 2023. In the entirely privatized Grand Hyatt Bali, this two-day international sports market and summit will provide the Sportel Community the opportunity to reconnect and do business with major sports business leaders from the APAC market.
According to its organizers, Indonesia was a strategic choice to host this new Sportel Rendez-vous, after four years of absence in Asia (last edition held in 2019 in Macau). As the fourth largest population and one of the fastest growing economies, the interest in sports and technology in Indonesia is immense. In addition, the APAC Market is in rapid expansion with US$49.2 billion OTT total revenues in 2022, and its sports media revenues will continue to grow by 6% in the next five years.
Looking forward to best meet its clients’ needs, Sportel has created special products designed to increase visibility thanks to the numerous exhibit and sponsorship options available. The floor plan has also been tailored on one level to maximize traffic as well as networking and business opportunities.
Six weeks before the event kick-off, many key rights holders and broadcasters, as well as new and creative sports industry players from Asia and Oceania, have already confirmed their participation, such as Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union, CAA eleven, CJ ENM, Cubmu, Culver Max Entertainment, EMTEK, Enveu, Football Marketing Asia, Fox Sports, Ideal Systems, IEG, IMG, Infront Pan-Asia, MediaPro Asia, MNC Paramount, Sport Five Asia, Stan, Vietcontent, Vidio, TransTV, and many more.
Sportel Rendez-vous Bali expects to welcome 54% of Asian participants, 37% of content buyers and 30% of companies attending for the first time. To see the full list of participants, click here (password: bali2023).
