Underpinning this is the work undertaken by the NFL International Media team to grow the popularity of the NFL and the size of its fanbase across the world through the distribution of live games and other content that highlight great stories from across the league both on and off the field. NFL content is available in all countries around the world through local media partnerships and Game Pass, our own digital product.

SPORTEL expands "Rendez-vous" series with two events planned for the first semester of 2023

Following the vibrant 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 to its calendar 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 unique 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 23 to 24 February 2023 in the outstanding setting of the 600 room Grand Hyatt Bali Hotel. The Welcome Party for all registered participants will be held at the hotel on 22 February at sunset.

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 organisation that is well-known for its annual international music festival, the Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival.

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, save the date for SPORTEL Rendez-Vous Miami taking place from 9 to 10 May 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,” explains Laurent Puons, CEO of SPORTEL.

SPORTEL Rendez-Vous, the overseas streamlined 2-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.

SPORTEL Monaco 2021 registration opening SOON

« Dear SPORTEL Community,

During these last few months, the SPORTEL team has managed to keep in touch with you mainly through various means of communication, and more recently through our new series of free to attend online panels, the SPORTEL+ eTALKS.

Today, I confirm that we are ready to reunite and reconnect face-to-face the sports media and technology industry.

I am confident that the SPORTEL community will be able to meet, network and exchange again in Monaco from 5 to 7 October.

Monaco is a unique destination which has put in place extensive measures to continue to welcome congresses all throughout the pandemic in all safety. Thanks to the actions taken by the Monegasque Government and the hosting venue, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco, the SPORTEL team is working every day with the perspective of carrying out the organisation of SPORTEL Monaco.

The well-being and safety of all participants and our team, are our absolute priority. We are doing everything in our power to welcome you with complete peace of mind. »

SPORTEL Monaco postponed to February 2021. SPORTEL Awards to go ahead in October

While travel restrictions are leading to a series of cancellations of the world's largest trade shows, Monaco Mediax remains on track by postponing its flagship event, SPORTEL Monaco, which was scheduled to be held in the Principality of Monaco from 26 to 28 October 2020.

The internationally renowned convention will now be held from 22 to 24 February 2021, at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco. This information was first announced through a personal communication to each participant planning to attend SPORTEL Monaco.

Faced with fears of a new COVID-19 wave, many countries are tightening restrictions and increasing border controls. Especially in Europe, governments are imposing new rules on travellers to and from France. In addition, some international companies have issued a travel ban for all their employees until the end of the year.

"Giving up is not in my vocabulary. But given the travel restrictions, it is impossible to keep our event in October," says Laurent Puons, CEO "The easiest solution would have been to simply cancel the event, but the sports business economy cannot afford to put itself on hold for too long. Convinced that this economy will fully recover in the coming months, we must be there when the time comes.

By postponing its event, Monaco Mediax demonstrates the attention and consideration given to participants and exhibitors, in order to offer them an event that meets their expectations and needs. However, finding new dates for the postponement of SPORTEL Monaco was difficult due to a 2021 calendar that was already saturated with trade shows and congresses.

The event will take place at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco, in its traditional format, offering an ever-increasing variety of services to facilitate exchanges.

SPORTEL, the world’s leading Sports Content Media Rights and Technology Convention, is offering a range of new formulas and customized solutions to bring added value to its clients and innovates by relocating the conference room within the exhibition floor.

"We must preserve our DNA. A 100% digital or hybrid concept is not adapted to our event, which above all promotes exchanges and networking. SPORTEL is the largest meeting platform for the key actors in international sports business," adds Laurent Puons.

In this ambitious context, the organizers are choosing solid and transparent communication plans to reassure participants and exhibitors and maintain their confidence to welcome them in 2021!

Notwithstanding the postponement of SPORTEL Monaco, SPORTEL Awards will still take place from 26 to 28 October 2020 at the Grimaldi Forum.
Organized under the Honorary Presidency of H.S.H. Prince Albert II, SPORTEL Awards rewards the best sports sequences of the year during a prestigious ceremony open to the public and in the presence of many great champions.
SPORTEL Awards also proposes a range of events dedicated to the public to offer them special moments with renowned sports personalities: screenings, exclusive meetings, etc.
The complete SPORTEL Awards programme will be unveiled in the coming weeks, offering an exclusive content.

MONACO MEDIAX events and the Grimaldi Forum Monaco mobilised to ensure an optimal reception of participants

Four months prior to SPORTEL Monaco Convention and SPORTEL Awards, Laurent Puons, CEO of MONACO MEDIAX, confirms that both events will be held as planned from 25 to 28 October 2020 at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco.

In order to guarantee an optimal reception of participants and the public next autumn, the organising teams of SPORTEL and the Grimaldi Forum are working together, ensuring that the necessary arrangements are made, in compliance with the governmental preventative health measures in force.

To date, the Grimaldi Forum has provided its clients with precise guidelines describing the hygiene and social distancing measures as well as gesture barriers recommended and/or to be applied during the events, such as temperature measurement at the entrance of the congress centre, compulsory wearing of a mask, providing hydro-alcoholic gel and complete cleaning and disinfection with virucide EN 14476 norm.

"We are optimistic about business resuming activity. Widely recognised for twenty years for its ability to adapt to all the projects of event organisers, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco, has always placed security as its top priority. We are doing everything we can to put in place optimal reception conditions. We have a busy schedule starting in September, and we are particularly pleased to welcome this 31st edition of SPORTEL from 25 to 28 October," says Sylvie Biancheri, General Director of the Grimaldi Forum.

For its part, MONACO MEDIAX is also working on a sanitary protocol planned upon arrival at the Grimaldi Forum with a reorganisation of the various welcome areas to guarantee a minimum distance between participants and a regular cleaning of the conference and exhibition facilities. These measures will naturally have to be confirmed and adapted according to the health emergency declared at the time of the event.

"We are fully operational with the perspective of carrying out the organisation of SPORTEL Monaco and SPORTEL Awards. The health of our participants is paramount and remains our major concern. We are doing everything in our power to guarantee that health standards are respected, enabling us to welcome our participants with complete peace of mind," explains Laurent Puons.

Furthermore, Monaco's geographical location on the shores of the Mediterranean, and the architecture of the Grimaldi Forum, with large openings to the outside, facilitating ventilation, are assets when it comes to the prevention of the risks linked to COVID-19.

Together with the measures taken by the Monegasque Government, which is carrying out massive screening of its resident and salaried population, these arrangements confirm that SPORTEL events can be organised in Monaco under the best possible conditions.

SPORTEL, the must attend event to reignite 'live' business at Monaco October convention

Dear SPORTEL Community,

During these unprecedented times, with the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic currently disrupting the world as we know it, the sports industry is a major sector that has taken a direct hit, seeing practically all live sports events and gatherings cancelled or postponed. Broadcasters and media content owners, have been left unable to distribute live sports programming to the billions of sports fans globally, seeing many take down paywalls or pausing subscriptions temporarily. On the one hand this is causing a significant financial loss, but on the other sparking a solidarity and creativity within the industry to keep sports fans engaged.

Virtual sports events and esports have also come to the forefront, entertaining sports fans across not only streaming but also linear platforms, illustrating an emerging ‘crossover’ trend between communities as the lines blur, shifting the mindset for new opportunities coming out of a challenging situation.

For over 30 years, SPORTEL has been committed to supporting our ever growing and diverse community, providing quality events whilst remaining the only convention focusing on media rights for the entire sports industry, whether traditional sports, or looking forward, to virtual sports, esports and gaming. Always staying ahead of the game, we will continue to develop emerging sectors such as live sports betting and immersive technologies, providing new communities for our clients to do business with which introduce next gen fan bases and potential revenue streams.

This year will be no exception, with the main event following the disruptive setback ready to unite and reconnect the sports media and technology industry from 26-28 October in Monaco. SPORTEL Monaco 2020 will be “the must attend event” to catch up with and meet the right people that you need to get back on track for business. My dedicated team will be there to help you and work alongside you to create personalised solutions from our new selection of innovative and added value exhibitor and visitor package options. More tailored content will complement business meetings, with opportunities to join the debate at “Speakers Corner” on a redesigned exhibition floor, plus the addition of special events including a SPORTEL Kick-off party to launch the convention and enhance networking.

On behalf of my team and myself, we send our very best wishes to you, your family, friends and colleagues during these tough times we are all experiencing, not only from an economic perspective but most importantly on a personal level.

We look forward to seeing you in Monaco for the next challenge, but meanwhile stay home and stay safe.

With my very best regards,

Laurent Puons

New Initiatives for a Changing Market at SPORTEL Miami 2020

As SPORTEL Miami 2020 concludes, Laurent Puons, CEO, takes a look back at the event’s highlights: We pride ourselves on listening to and working with our community and we know that the industry is very competitive and ever changing. For this reason, I will continue to provide the SPORTEL community with the best opportunities to do business. Next year the spring market will take place over three days, starting with a one-day thought leadership conference, followed by a two-day market. Be sure that we will continue to develop new initiatives to keep SPORTEL ahead of the game.

The sold out conference day, was widely embraced by both the impressive international speaker line-up and participants. For the first year ever, this enabled participants to completely focus on the discussions of the day and take full advantage of the structured networking environment before moving on to the market and deal making the next day.

In addition, as requested by our clients, SPORTEL ensured more buyers in attendance and organized a two-day series of invitation only ‘Buyers Breakfasts’ during the market.

SPORTEL is delighted that both new initiatives have received such an excellent response to complement the business and deal making on the trade floor that SPORTEL is world famous for!

We would like to thank our participants, exhibitors, speakers, sponsors and partners for supporting SPORTEL once again. We look forward to welcoming you to our global event SPORTEL Monaco from 26 – 28 October.

The Facebook and IRONMAN case study - A global live event programming partnership

Since 2018, IRONMAN has partnered with Facebook to distribute its live events on Facebook Watch. During SPORTEL Miami Conference Day, on Tuesday 3rd March, Devi Mahadevia, Facebook Director of Emerging & Digital Sports Partnerships and Matthieu Van Veen, the IRONMAN Group Chief Revenue Officer, will discuss how IRONMAN has leveraged the social network to build an audience and drive meaningful business results. The case study will illustrate the growth of the partnership and highlight how participatory sports such as IRONMAN events are a great fit for Facebook Watch because they are highly communal with established and engaged fan bases on the Facebook platform. IRONMAN has emerged as an industry leader when it comes to using Facebook to support its tentpole events, so we’re thrilled to share some of the ingredients to its success at SPORTEL Miami, said Devi Mahadevia. We expect this conversation to cover a lot of ground - everything from how IRONMAN tailors its productions for a social media audience, to how it uses our tools to build an audience, generate advertising revenue and drive sign-ups to its races. We also look forward to discussing how this partnership fits within our broader Facebook Watch content strategy. The session will also share insights on how the partnership takes fans inside the inner workings of race day for further engagement and will walk the audience through the astounding success of Facebook Watch programming numbers right from the start of the partnership, bringing a truly global schedule of live event coverage to a broadening community.

We look forward to sharing our success story with Facebook at SPORTEL Miami. This is a great opportunity to showcase how two industry leading companies have been able to come together to meet their respective growth and innovation goals, said Matthieu Van Veen. Facebook has provided us with a unique platform to showcase our events while delivering to Facebook a highly engaged community. Together, we created a large audience that comes to Facebook to watch our content and interact with each other. This has become a year-round platform for our host cities and sponsors.

Interview of John Skipper, DAZN

In the U.S., DAZN features the biggest fights in boxing for an attractive annual or monthly subscription price. We’ve seen streaming transform the fields of entertainment and music. And now the same is starting to happen in live sports - the most valuable content in the world. After launching in 2016, DAZN has expanded to nine countries across four continents including Austria, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the United States.

Full conference programme

What is the biggest difference between boxing on linear vs. OTT?

The scheduling is critical. Last year, we announced “Fight Season on DAZN” as our fall campaign to inform consumers that championship boxing events would be coming their way each month – Gennadiy Golovkin in October, Canelo Alvarez in November, Anthony Joshua in December. The best way to retain subscribers is to provide must-have content each month.

The 2020 spring edition of SPORTEL will kick off on 3 March, with a high-level conference day including a keynote panel featuring some of the most important personalities from the world of boxing.

Today’s consumers love navigating life with their mobile device on hand, which creates an opportunity for streaming services like DAZN to deliver high-quality content that is relevant to their passions and available at their fingertips. This trend is not only impacting entertainment but is changing the way boxing fans enjoy the sport.

During this “heavyweight” keynote panel, Oscar De La Hoya, CEO of Golden Boy and Former World Boxing Champion, along with Eddie Hearn, Group Managing Director of Matchroom Sport will discuss how this trend has created an opportunity to connect with new consumers, the importance of social media in marketing events, and the role that boxers play in promoting their own fights and viewing options. Additionally, John Skipper, Executive Chairman of DAZN Group will offer insights into how the viewing experience can be more engaging and what the company is doing to pioneer sports streaming. On this occasion, we asked Eddie Hearn some questions for further insights.

On this occasion, we asked Eddie Hearn some questions for further insights.

How do yourself and Matchroom Boxing see the future of boxing?

Boxing is in a good place while interest from broadcasters continues to exist but ultimately we must keep making the match ups that will engage the fans. As much as the quality and style match ups are important, so to is the narrative that can be told both by the promoter and by the creation of quality content and shoulder programming for each event. For me, this creation is as key to the future as the fights themselves. Boxing is so exciting but the stories are compelling and must be told.

How is OTT streaming through the partnership with DAZN, enabling Matchroom to bring your fights to a wider audience and become more engaging for fans?

With DAZN you have seen the creation of an unrivalled schedule for boxing in the U.S. Whilst the option of watching on a big screen still exists, fans can now stream live events on the go through their devices - a common trend and preferred option for the younger generation of sports fans. From a scheduling perspective we don’t have the restrictions a linear partner can bring and therefore can broadcast more fights giving our younger emerging talent continued global exposure. With our international schedule, together we have built the ultimate destination for fight fans.

Additionally, John Skipper, Executive Chairman of DAZN Group will offer insights into how the viewing experience can be more engaging and what the company is doing to pioneer sports streaming.

On this occasion, we asked the three elite speakers some questions for further insights.

How are boxers embracing OTT platforms?

Many of the boxers in the Golden Boy stable are embracing DAZN and their OTT strategy with major enthusiasm. We work closely with our fighters on properly posting the DAZN value proposition on their Social Media channels utilizing strong graphics and images and hard hitting video. Our fighters recognize that Golden Boy and DAZN are at the forefront of distributing Live Sports to consumers in and out of their homes on their device of choice. Being pioneers is exciting for our athletes as we drive more attention to them with the best in technology and design.

How does marketing differ between an OTT platform vs. traditional channel?

Many of the same practices are utilized for driving attention to fights airing on DAZN that were once airing on HBO, although the message is much different as DAZN is a subscriber based business that offers over 100 fights a year for the fraction of an HBO subscription coupled with the PPV price tag for mega fights. The DAZN value proposition is positioned and explained across traditional radio and TV spots as well as through outdoor and on digital platforms. The major difference is the strategic utilization of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter both via paid and earned media. DAZN and Golden Boy work closely with influencers that can drive subscribers and ticket sales to our fight - the creative is slick and fast moving, driving attention and awareness.

SPORTEL, 30 years of sporting elite

A unique opportunity for sharing ideas and influence, SPORTEL Monaco proved once again this year that, in the world of sport business, it is THE event not to be missed; a showcase for all the latest market trends. Alongside old familiar faces, SPORTEL has, over the last five years, put the spotlight on new technologies, revealing the key players in anti-pirating, monetization of content and fan engagement.

For the first time ever, a new “Innovation Zone” was mixed together with sport business leaders such as LaLiga, Bundesliga International, Infront Sports & Media, Matchroom and NBA, to mention just a few, clearly demonstrating that this is a sector in full flight.

“Business leaders know that, during three days, we give them the opportunity to meet the main actors both from international sports media and from the new technology sector. With 3126 participants, representing an increase of 3%, 980 companies from 73 countries, SPORTEL Monaco is now, more than ever before, the industry’s biggest international gathering”, declared Laurent Puons, CEO.

On Monday 21st October, SPORTEL Monaco celebrated its 30th anniversary in a fun, convivial setting. All of the SPORTEL community were invited to mark 30 years of meetings and opportunities at an evening event that mixed business and fun. There were friendly games of darts, ping pong and table football.

“I’d like to thank all of those companies who’ve been coming to SPORTEL from the very beginning and to the more recent arrivals, for their loyalty. Thank you for your trust! I would also like to thank all of our sponsors: Bundesliga International, DLA Piper, Eurovision Sport, Fight Sports, Getty Images, Leadership Institute in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, LaLiga, Ligue Nationale de Rugby, Mediakind, Nielsen Sport, Red Bee Media, Telstra, Vimeo, the Monaco Olympic Committee, the French National Olympic and Sports Committee, A.S.

Next year’s sport business' rendez-vous will take place in the USA. After a two-year absence, SPORTEL will be returning to Miami from 3rd to 6th March 2020, with a brand new format. An additional day will be set aside for high-level conferences, themes of which will be announced shortly.

SPORTEL expands "Rendez-vous" series with two events planned for the first semester of 2023

Following the vibrant 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 to its calendar 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 unique 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 23 to 24 February 2023 in the outstanding setting of the 600 room Grand Hyatt Bali Hotel. The Welcome Party for all registered participants will be held at the hotel on 22 February at sunset.

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 organisation that is well-known for its annual international music festival, the Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival.

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, save the date for SPORTEL Rendez-Vous Miami taking place from 9 to 10 May 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,” explains Laurent Puons, CEO of SPORTEL.

SPORTEL Rendez-Vous, the overseas streamlined 2-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.

SPORTEL Monaco 2021 registration opening SOON

« Dear SPORTEL Community,

During these last few months, the SPORTEL team has managed to keep in touch with you mainly through various means of communication, and more recently through our new series of free to attend online panels, the SPORTEL+ eTALKS.

Today, I confirm that we are ready to reunite and reconnect face-to-face the sports media and technology industry.

I am confident that the SPORTEL community will be able to meet, network and exchange again in Monaco from 5 to 7 October.

Monaco is a unique destination which has put in place extensive measures to continue to welcome congresses all throughout the pandemic in all safety. Thanks to the actions taken by the Monegasque Government and the hosting venue, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco, the SPORTEL team is working every day with the perspective of carrying out the organisation of SPORTEL Monaco.

The well-being and safety of all participants and our team, are our absolute priority. We are doing everything in our power to welcome you with complete peace of mind. »

SPORTEL Monaco postponed to February 2021. SPORTEL Awards to go ahead in October

While travel restrictions are leading to a series of cancellations of the world's largest trade shows, Monaco Mediax remains on track by postponing its flagship event, SPORTEL Monaco, which was scheduled to be held in the Principality of Monaco from 26 to 28 October 2020.

The internationally renowned convention will now be held from 22 to 24 February 2021, at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco. This information was first announced through a personal communication to each participant planning to attend SPORTEL Monaco.

Faced with fears of a new COVID-19 wave, many countries are tightening restrictions and increasing border controls. Especially in Europe, governments are imposing new rules on travellers to and from France. In addition, some international companies have issued a travel ban for all their employees until the end of the year.

"Giving up is not in my vocabulary. But given the travel restrictions, it is impossible to keep our event in October," says Laurent Puons, CEO "The easiest solution would have been to simply cancel the event, but the sports business economy cannot afford to put itself on hold for too long. Convinced that this economy will fully recover in the coming months, we must be there when the time comes.

By postponing its event, Monaco Mediax demonstrates the attention and consideration given to participants and exhibitors, in order to offer them an event that meets their expectations and needs. However, finding new dates for the postponement of SPORTEL Monaco was difficult due to a 2021 calendar that was already saturated with trade shows and congresses.

The event will take place at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco, in its traditional format, offering an ever-increasing variety of services to facilitate exchanges.

SPORTEL, the world’s leading Sports Content Media Rights and Technology Convention, is offering a range of new formulas and customized solutions to bring added value to its clients and innovates by relocating the conference room within the exhibition floor.

"We must preserve our DNA. A 100% digital or hybrid concept is not adapted to our event, which above all promotes exchanges and networking. SPORTEL is the largest meeting platform for the key actors in international sports business," adds Laurent Puons.

In this ambitious context, the organizers are choosing solid and transparent communication plans to reassure participants and exhibitors and maintain their confidence to welcome them in 2021!

Notwithstanding the postponement of SPORTEL Monaco, SPORTEL Awards will still take place from 26 to 28 October 2020 at the Grimaldi Forum.
Organized under the Honorary Presidency of H.S.H. Prince Albert II, SPORTEL Awards rewards the best sports sequences of the year during a prestigious ceremony open to the public and in the presence of many great champions.
SPORTEL Awards also proposes a range of events dedicated to the public to offer them special moments with renowned sports personalities: screenings, exclusive meetings, etc.
The complete SPORTEL Awards programme will be unveiled in the coming weeks, offering an exclusive content.

  • 2020-07-23

COVID-19 Info

SPORTEL is closely monitoring the COVID-19 prevention measures recommended by the French and Monegasque authorities.

As of today and in partnership with the Grimaldi Forum, SPORTEL will adopt the above measures for the duration of the event.

MONACO MEDIAX events and the Grimaldi Forum Monaco mobilised to ensure an optimal reception of participants

Four months prior to SPORTEL Monaco Convention and SPORTEL Awards, Laurent Puons, CEO of MONACO MEDIAX, confirms that both events will be held as planned from 25 to 28 October 2020 at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco.

In order to guarantee an optimal reception of participants and the public next autumn, the organising teams of SPORTEL and the Grimaldi Forum are working together, ensuring that the necessary arrangements are made, in compliance with the governmental preventative health measures in force.

To date, the Grimaldi Forum has provided its clients with precise guidelines describing the hygiene and social distancing measures as well as gesture barriers recommended and/or to be applied during the events, such as temperature measurement at the entrance of the congress centre, compulsory wearing of a mask, providing hydro-alcoholic gel and complete cleaning and disinfection with virucide EN 14476 norm.

"We are optimistic about business resuming activity. Widely recognised for twenty years for its ability to adapt to all the projects of event organisers, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco, has always placed security as its top priority. We are doing everything we can to put in place optimal reception conditions. We have a busy schedule starting in September, and we are particularly pleased to welcome this 31st edition of SPORTEL from 25 to 28 October," says Sylvie Biancheri, General Director of the Grimaldi Forum.

For its part, MONACO MEDIAX is also working on a sanitary protocol planned upon arrival at the Grimaldi Forum with a reorganisation of the various welcome areas to guarantee a minimum distance between participants and a regular cleaning of the conference and exhibition facilities. These measures will naturally have to be confirmed and adapted according to the health emergency declared at the time of the event.

"We are fully operational with the perspective of carrying out the organisation of SPORTEL Monaco and SPORTEL Awards. The health of our participants is paramount and remains our major concern. We are doing everything in our power to guarantee that health standards are respected, enabling us to welcome our participants with complete peace of mind," explains Laurent Puons.

Furthermore, Monaco's geographical location on the shores of the Mediterranean, and the architecture of the Grimaldi Forum, with large openings to the outside, facilitating ventilation, are assets when it comes to the prevention of the risks linked to COVID-19.

Together with the measures taken by the Monegasque Government, which is carrying out massive screening of its resident and salaried population, these arrangements confirm that SPORTEL events can be organised in Monaco under the best possible conditions.

SPORTEL, the must attend event to reignite 'live' business at Monaco October convention

Dear SPORTEL Community,

During these unprecedented times, with the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic currently disrupting the world as we know it, the sports industry is a major sector that has taken a direct hit, seeing practically all live sports events and gatherings cancelled or postponed. Broadcasters and media content owners, have been left unable to distribute live sports programming to the billions of sports fans globally, seeing many take down paywalls or pausing subscriptions temporarily. On the one hand this is causing a significant financial loss, but on the other sparking a solidarity and creativity within the industry to keep sports fans engaged.

Virtual sports events and esports have also come to the forefront, entertaining sports fans across not only streaming but also linear platforms, illustrating an emerging ‘crossover’ trend between communities as the lines blur, shifting the mindset for new opportunities coming out of a challenging situation.

For over 30 years, SPORTEL has been committed to supporting our ever growing and diverse community, providing quality events whilst remaining the only convention focusing on media rights for the entire sports industry, whether traditional sports, or looking forward, to virtual sports, esports and gaming. Always staying ahead of the game, we will continue to develop emerging sectors such as live sports betting and immersive technologies, providing new communities for our clients to do business with which introduce next gen fan bases and potential revenue streams.

This year will be no exception, with the main event following the disruptive setback ready to unite and reconnect the sports media and technology industry from 26-28 October in Monaco. SPORTEL Monaco 2020 will be “the must attend event” to catch up with and meet the right people that you need to get back on track for business. My dedicated team will be there to help you and work alongside you to create personalised solutions from our new selection of innovative and added value exhibitor and visitor package options. More tailored content will complement business meetings, with opportunities to join the debate at “Speakers Corner” on a redesigned exhibition floor, plus the addition of special events including a SPORTEL Kick-off party to launch the convention and enhance networking.

On behalf of my team and myself, we send our very best wishes to you, your family, friends and colleagues during these tough times we are all experiencing, not only from an economic perspective but most importantly on a personal level.

We look forward to seeing you in Monaco for the next challenge, but meanwhile stay home and stay safe.

With my very best regards,

Laurent Puons
CEO

New Initiatives for a Changing Market at SPORTEL Miami 2020

As SPORTEL Miami 2020 concludes, Laurent Puons, CEO, takes a look back at the event’s highlights: We pride ourselves on listening to and working with our community and we know that the industry is very competitive and ever changing. For this reason, I will continue to provide the SPORTEL community with the best opportunities to do business. Next year the spring market will take place over three days, starting with a one-day thought leadership conference, followed by a two-day market. Be sure that we will continue to develop new initiatives to keep SPORTEL ahead of the game.

The sold out conference day, was widely embraced by both the impressive international speaker line-up and participants. For the first year ever, this enabled participants to completely focus on the discussions of the day and take full advantage of the structured networking environment before moving on to the market and deal making the next day.

In addition, as requested by our clients, SPORTEL ensured more buyers in attendance and organized a two-day series of invitation only ‘Buyers Breakfasts’ during the market.

SPORTEL is delighted that both new initiatives have received such an excellent response to complement the business and deal making on the trade floor that SPORTEL is world famous for!

We would like to thank our participants, exhibitors, speakers, sponsors and partners for supporting SPORTEL once again. We look forward to welcoming you to our global event SPORTEL Monaco from 26 – 28 October.

The Facebook and IRONMAN case study - A global live event programming partnership

Since 2018, IRONMAN has partnered with Facebook to distribute its live events on Facebook Watch. During SPORTEL Miami Conference Day, on Tuesday 3rd March, Devi Mahadevia, Facebook Director of Emerging & Digital Sports Partnerships and Matthieu Van Veen, the IRONMAN Group Chief Revenue Officer, will discuss how IRONMAN has leveraged the social network to build an audience and drive meaningful business results. The case study will illustrate the growth of the partnership and highlight how participatory sports such as IRONMAN events are a great fit for Facebook Watch because they are highly communal with established and engaged fan bases on the Facebook platform. IRONMAN has emerged as an industry leader when it comes to using Facebook to support its tentpole events, so we’re thrilled to share some of the ingredients to its success at SPORTEL Miami, said Devi Mahadevia. We expect this conversation to cover a lot of ground - everything from how IRONMAN tailors its productions for a social media audience, to how it uses our tools to build an audience, generate advertising revenue and drive sign-ups to its races. We also look forward to discussing how this partnership fits within our broader Facebook Watch content strategy.

This is a great opportunity to showcase how two industry leading companies have been able to come together to meet their respective growth and innovation goals, said Matthieu Van Veen. Facebook has provided us with a unique platform to showcase our events while delivering to Facebook a highly engaged community. Together, we created a large audience that comes to Facebook to watch our content and interact with each other. This has become a year-round platform for our host cities and sponsors. As we enter the third year of the partnership, we are looking forward to further utilizing the platform functionalities and provide coaching and training services to our athletes. We are delighted to have the opportunity to discuss this roadmap while engaging with other industry leaders at SPORTEL.

Interview of John Skipper, DAZN

In the U.S., DAZN features the biggest fights in boxing for an attractive annual or monthly subscription price. We’ve seen streaming transform the fields of entertainment and music. And now the same is starting to happen in live sports - the most valuable content in the world. After launching in 2016, DAZN has expanded to nine countries across four continents including Austria, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the United States.

Full conference programme

What is the biggest difference between boxing on linear vs. OTT?

The scheduling is critical. Last year, we announced “Fight Season on DAZN” as our fall campaign to inform consumers that championship boxing events would be coming their way each month – Gennadiy Golovkin in October, Canelo Alvarez in November, Anthony Joshua in December. The best way to retain subscribers is to provide must-have content each month.

The 2020 spring edition of SPORTEL will kick off on 3 March, with a high-level conference day including a keynote panel featuring some of the most important personalities from the world of boxing.

Today’s consumers love navigating life with their mobile device on hand, which creates an opportunity for streaming services like DAZN to deliver high-quality content that is relevant to their passions and available at their fingertips. This trend is not only impacting entertainment but is changing the way boxing fans enjoy the sport.

During this “heavyweight” keynote panel, Oscar De La Hoya, CEO of Golden Boy and Former World Boxing Champion, along with Eddie Hearn, Group Managing Director of Matchroom Sport will discuss how this trend has created an opportunity to connect with new consumers, the importance of social media in marketing events, and the role that boxers play in promoting their own fights and viewing options. Additionally, John Skipper, Executive Chairman of DAZN Group will offer insights into how the viewing experience can be more engaging and what the company is doing to pioneer sports streaming. On this occasion, we asked Eddie Hearn some questions for further insights.

On this occasion, we asked Eddie Hearn some questions for further insights.

How do yourself and Matchroom Boxing see the future of boxing?

Boxing is in a good place while interest from broadcasters continues to exist but ultimately we must keep making the match ups that will engage the fans. As much as the quality and style match ups are important, so to is the narrative that can be told both by the promoter and by the creation of quality content and shoulder programming for each event. For me, this creation is as key to the future as the fights themselves. Boxing is so exciting but the stories are compelling and must be told.

How is OTT streaming through the partnership with DAZN, enabling Matchroom to bring your fights to a wider audience and become more engaging for fans?

With DAZN you have seen the creation of an unrivalled schedule for boxing in the U.S. Whilst the option of watching on a big screen still exists, fans can now stream live events on the go through their devices - a common trend and preferred option for the younger generation of sports fans. From a scheduling perspective we don’t have the restrictions a linear partner can bring and therefore can broadcast more fights giving our younger emerging talent continued global exposure. With our international schedule, together we have built the ultimate destination for fight fans.

Additionally, John Skipper, Executive Chairman of DAZN Group will offer insights into how the viewing experience can be more engaging and what the company is doing to pioneer sports streaming.

On this occasion, we asked the three elite speakers some questions for further insights.

How are boxers embracing OTT platforms?

Many of the boxers in the Golden Boy stable are embracing DAZN and their OTT strategy with major enthusiasm. We work closely with our fighters on properly posting the DAZN value proposition on their Social Media channels utilizing strong graphics and images and hard hitting video. Our fighters recognize that Golden Boy and DAZN are at the forefront of distributing Live Sports to consumers in and out of their homes on their device of choice. Being pioneers is exciting for our athletes as we drive more attention to them with the best in technology and design.

How does marketing differ between an OTT platform vs. traditional channel?

Many of the same practices are utilized for driving attention to fights airing on DAZN that were once airing on HBO, although the message is much different as DAZN is a subscriber based business that offers over 100 fights a year for the fraction of an HBO subscription coupled with the PPV price tag for mega fights. The DAZN value proposition is positioned and explained across traditional radio and TV spots as well as through outdoor and on digital platforms. The major difference is the strategic utilization of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter both via paid and earned media. DAZN and Golden Boy work closely with influencers that can drive subscribers and ticket sales to our fight - the creative is slick and fast moving, driving attention and awareness.

SPORTEL, 30 years of sporting elite

A unique opportunity for sharing ideas and influence, SPORTEL Monaco proved once again this year that, in the world of sport business, it is THE event not to be missed; a showcase for all the latest market trends. Alongside old familiar faces, SPORTEL has, over the last five years, put the spotlight on new technologies, revealing the key players in anti-pirating, monetization of content and fan engagement.

There were friendly games of darts, ping pong and table football.

“I’d like to thank all of those companies who’ve been coming to SPORTEL from the very beginning and to the more recent arrivals, for their loyalty. Thank you for your trust! I would also like to thank all of our sponsors: Bundesliga International, DLA Piper, Eurovision Sport, Fight Sports, Getty Images, Leadership Institute in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, LaLiga, Ligue Nationale de Rugby, Mediakind, Nielsen Sport, Red Bee Media, Telstra, Vimeo, the Monaco Olympic Committee, the French National Olympic and Sports Committee, A.S.

Un concours géant de lancers-francs a animé le gymnase Saint-Charles hier après-midi.

Une remise des Prix dans la magie de l'Olympisme

Le public s'est installÈ tranquillement dans la salle Prince Pierre du Grimaldi Forum, l'ambiance est conviviale. Le défilé des champions sur le gazon vert déposé pour l'occasion sur l'esplanade du Grimaldi Forum vient de se terminer.

Les derniers photocalls s'attardent, on entend encore les crépitements des appareils. Soudain la lumière s'éteint, le son monte, un laser transperce l'obscurité et éclaire le présentateur projecteur Marc Maury, seul sur la scène.

Le spectacle va commencer. Des milliers d'étoiles illuminent la toile de fond noir, le décor de la salle ressemble à un conte des mille et une nuits. La cérémonie peut commencer.
