Sportel Monaco wrapped up its 2022 edition with 1900 participants (29% of content buyers and 42% of C-level executives), proving that it remains the biggest international gathering in the global sports business industry.
According to its organizers, 800 companies were represented in the event, including 170 companies that attended Sportel for the first time. Furthermore, executives from 71 countries gathered in Monaco: 68% from Europe, 14% from North America, 3% from Central & South America, 8.5% from Asia, and 6.5% from other parts of the world.
“It has been such a pleasure to be back with a sold-out event that brought together the global sports rights and distribution industry. I am delighted to see a thriving and busy exhibition space once again in the Ravel and Diaghilev halls, alongside the phenomenal success of the conference summit at Speakers’ Corner and the many valuable insights that were offered by our speakers. On top of that, the prospect of Sportel’s return to Asia after four years of absence, with a brand-new edition of Sportel Rendez-vous in Bali next February, as well as the second edition of Sportel Rendez-vous Miami in May, means that we head into 2023 full of energy and optimism,” commented Laurent Puons, CEO of Sportel.
Sportel’s strategy remains unchanged, with Sportel Monaco the main flagship event, bringing together the whole sports industry in one location, and Sportel’s “Rendez-Vous” providing additional opportunities to do business internationally, across different markets and continents throughout the year, in a smaller, more intimate and affordable format.
Regarding next year, Sportel already announced some of its key dates: Sportel Rendez-vous Bali will be celebrated on February 23-24; Sportel Rendez-vous Miami on May 9-10; and Sportel Monaco on October 23-25.
