Following the success of the first edition of Sportel Rendez-Vous held in Miami in March 2022, Sportel is expanding the Rendez-Vous series adding on another event for the global sports business industry in the first semester of 2023. To open the new year, Sportel is introducing a new destination: after four years of absence, Sportel will be back in Asia, giving the opportunity to the Sportel community to reconnect with the Asian market, by bringing the business onsite.
For the first time ever, Sportel will host an event in Bali, a location easily accessible with direct flights from Jakarta, Melbourne, Singapore, Dubai, and Istanbul, and many other big cities around the world. Sportel Rendez-Vous Bali will take place from February 23 to 24, 2023, in the Grand Hyatt Bali Hotel. This new initiative is organized in partnership with Transvision, a pay TV company under the media arm of CT Corpora, the biggest media conglomerate in Indonesia, owner of TransTV, Trans7, CNN Indonesia and CNBC Indonesia, and in cooperation with Java Festival Production, a respected organization that is well-known for its annual international music festival, the Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival.
Moreover, in May 2023, Sportel Rendez-Vous will return to the United States at the newly refurbished Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay which has undergone a major 50 million dollar transformation. Sportel management opted for these strategical dates in May to offer the best hotel rates to its participants. Following directly on from the 2023 F1 Miami Grand Prix, Sportel Rendez-Vous Miami will take place from May 9 to 10, 2023.
"With these two events abroad, one in Asia and one in North America, Sportel confirms that we are always staying ahead of the game and that we continue to develop business opportunities to best meet our clients’ needs. Our strategy and approach today are very clear. Sportel Monaco remains the main flagship event that reunites all Sportel’s community and the Sportel Rendez-Vous series provide additional opportunities to do business internationally, in different markets and continents, all throughout the year, in a smaller, more intimate and affordable format,” explained Laurent Puons, CEO of Sportel.
Sportel Rendez-Vous, the overseas streamlined two-day market series, features best-value products, with cost-effective attendee passes (from $550 / € 490) and exhibiting opportunities as well as special discounted hotel room rates, to guarantee a better ROI. Complemented by an innovative conference summit, they both offer a wide range of sponsorship and networking event opportunities, as well as many extracurricular activities to extend the Sportel experience.
