The first edition of the Soccerex Global Convention 2016 conference programme is now live. This year’s agenda is packed full of industry thought-leaders and will be taking place over three conference facilities; The Studio, The Academy and, new for 2016, The Love Football Zone.
With many more exciting names still to be announced, stay tuned for yet more speaker and session announcements as we build up to Manchester.
Whether it is an exclusive interview with an FA Chief, a discussion between World Cup winners or a presentation from a leading CEO, The Studio brings you the biggest names in football addressing the hottest topics in the game right now.
Situated on the exhibition floor, The Academy is our centre of learning with a programme of insight presentations & best practice panel discussions grouped together to deliver blocks of expert content for each of the four core sectors.
New for 2016 is the Academy Networking Lounge, enabling speakers and delegates to connect immediately following their presentations.
Building on the success of the Corporate Social Opportunity (CSO) Zone, the concept has been rebranded for 2016 to be called the “Love Football Zone” with the focus broadened to cover all the elements of the beautiful game other than elite men’s football. Whether it is women’s, grassroots or disability football, the zone will showcase how the sport makes a positive impact in the lives of so many different people and communities all around the world.
The zone will retain the same structure as in previous years with content grouped by subject matter and a programme spread across all three days of the Convention.
To ensure the continued development of the zone, a new working group has been established, featuring a selection of industry stakeholders with significant experience across a number of relevant sectors. More information on the working group will be published in due course.
