Rio de Janeiro, 13th March 2013.
The second edition of SPORTELRio closes its doors today and proved to be a sensational success! General Manager, Ms. Amparo Di Fede stated: “Before the market, we had high hopes for SPORTELRio 2013 and we are delighted that the market has exceeded our expectations“. She continued, “2012 saw Brazil provide the venue for a number of major sporting events and the world looks forward to 2013, 2014 and beyond.
The success of the second SPORTELRio market is a clear indication that Brazil is in the spotlight of the global sports media industry. Specifically, the subject of latest trends and best practice of “TV Anywhere” has been a highly discussed topic of the event, with our conferences on Monday and Tuesday receiving some of our best SPORTEL Spring Market attendance, in our history”.
The second edition of SPORTELRio once again played host to the leading brands of the global media industry, with strong support from our loyal SPORTEL community. The market saw a total of 541 registered participants, representing 290 companies, from 42 countries, all with the objective to develop new commercial relationships with the industry’s decision makers.
“SPORTEL continues to be the must attend event for the global sports media industry and we would like to thank all of our loyal participants and exhibitors. We are very pleased with the development and variety of companies that offer specific services to help increase sports content distribution and deliver revenue for all rights owners.” SPORTELRio welcomes all new partners such as ARQIVA, BEXEL, CP COMMUNICATIONS, ELEMENTAL, OPTA, SNTV and many more.
We have received great feedback in regard to the “Expert Panels”, which included “Second Screen: The Big Game” organised in collaboration the Associated Press and “TV ANYWHERE” and the “BRAZILIAN TV MARKET”, organized in collaboration with SVG Sports Video Group.
Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our exhibition and marketing partners, as their support is very much the key to our continued success.
