Monaco, October 13, 2011 – Once again SPORTELMonaco has completed another successful market! As announced this morning by Mr. David TOMATIS, CEO of MONACO MEDIAX/SPORTEL Organization, SPORTELMonaco has reached another high with 2330 participants, representing 970 companies of 67 nations. This shows a 10% increase for the market and making it the biggest in ten years.
With this increase SPORTELMonaco could fill the Grimaldi Forum with a total of 183 stands, including the new venue of the Diaghilef, resulting in a 30% increase of floor space.
Further Mr. Tomatis comments how pleased he is about the new variety of visitors and exhibitors, but also reports of the high level of deal making by the exhibitors and visitors alike.
Not to be forgotten are other highlight during SPORTELMonaco 2011, the annual Georges Bertellotti GOLDEN PODIUM AWARDS Ceremony, the international conference of “Olympic Games – The Lean Forward Revolution in Sports”, the symposium “Smart TV – Added Value for Sport?” and the very special press event “World Judo Championships, Paris 2011 and it’s Media Coverage”. In addition to that, attendees could witness demonstrations from the International Judo Federation and participate in an activity hosted by Bloggysport and win a trip to Las Vegas.
Furthermore Mr. Tomatis continues: “The overall reaction of participants was positive throughout and appreciated the development of new media and technology. SPORTEL continues to be a must attend and trend setting sports media business market.”
With the current buzz around Brazil the sports media industry, but also the South American market is seeking an exchange. Therefore SPORTEL has decided to host it’s upcoming market in Rio de Janeiro from March 12 to 14 2012 at the SOFITEL COPACABANA. Throughout SPORTELMonaco we have received massive interest for the market and are thrilled about the opportunity to host this market in that territory. Registration will be open by October 23, 2011.
