The Soccerex Global Convention 2017 featured over 36 hours of market leading content from expert international speakers, spread across four facilities:
The Studio brought some the biggest names in football such as Javier Tebas, Kolo Toure, David Dein, Edwin Van der Sar, Juan Mata, Wim Jonk and Jordi Cruyff, addressing the hottest topics in the game today.
The Academy, our home of business insight, saw subjects ranging from fan engagement and social media to player performance, stadia development and eSports, with presentations and discussions grouped by sector.
Following a highly successful redevelopment in 2016, the Love Football Zone returned in 2017, providing the game’s foremost agencies, NGOs, rights holders and social initiatives with a platform to engage with the industry on all topics outside elite men’s football.
Also a new area for 2017, The Lab, launched to showcase the latest niche innovations and expertise in some of football's key sectors such as stadia and performance.
