The SPORTEL Rendez-vous Bali held on February 22nd and 23rd is officially closed. All this, after two days of intense commercial meetings, networking and high-level conferences.

The event was hosted at the InterContinental Bali Resort, and received 350 participants from around 200 companies, representing 31 countries.

Laurent Puons, CEO of SPORTEL thanks everyone involved: “We sincerely thank all our esteemed participants, partners and speakers who contributed to the success of the SPORTEL Rendez-vous 2024 in Bali.

We thank our host, Transvision, for their hospitality in the incredible setting of the InterContinental Bali Resort.

This edition has proven once again that our overseas events act as connectors between a region’s sports media rights executives and our community, to develop valuable business opportunities during an intimate and qualitative regional sector meeting.

We will continue in this direction in 2024 and stay tuned for the 2025 calendar, which promises to be very rich”, concluded Puons.

Attracting 60% of attendees from Asia and Oceania territories and 30% from Content Buyers, the 2024 Rendez-vous was a great opportunity for the Europe and Americas community to meet the most important C-level decision makers (48%) within the sports industry in the APAC region, who do not normally participate in SPORTEL Monaco.
