The Soccerex Global Convention features over 25 hours of market leading content from expert international speakers, spread across four facilities:
The Studio brings you the biggest names in football addressing the hottest topics in the game today.
The Academy is our home of business insight, on subjects ranging from fan engagement and social media to player performance and stadia development, with presentations and discussions grouped by sector.
Following a highly successful redevelopment in 2016, the Love Football Zone will return 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, has been created to showcase the latest niche innovations and expertise in some of football's key sectors such as stadia and performance.
“The Soccerex Global Convention is definitely the number one event that pulls all the industry of football together, and for my first visit to Manchester and my first speech in England, it's been a really fantastic journey.”
