Success of the 2022 edition proves that SPORTEL Monaco is the 'home of the global sports business industry'

As the long-awaited 32nd edition draws to a close, SPORTEL Monaco 2022 has proven that it remains the biggest international gathering and the true home of the global sports business industry. Once again, some of the most influential business leaders (over 42% C-level executives) were in Monaco to meet, network and discuss the latest trends in the industry.

Feedback from some of the 1,900 attendees was overwhelmingly positive, with many comments on the number of deals being made, the plethora of networking opportunities and the high standard of the masterclasses, lectures and discussions held in front of capacity audiences. It was also a pleasure to see familiar faces, as well as meet and discover the 170 newcomers and the business opportunities they bring with them.

To close out this 2022 edition, SPORTEL CEO Laurent Puons said: “It was 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 bustling exhibition space once again in the Ravel and Diaghilev halls, along with the phenomenal success of the Speakers’ Corner conference summit and the many valuable insights that were offered by our speakers”.

“Furthermore, the prospect of SPORTEL’s return to Asia after four years of absence, with a 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 have entered in 2023 full of energy and optimism”, he shared.
