Social

At Soccerex, we recognize the importance of more relaxed networking environments and Soccerex USA sought to provide these opportunities to its attendees. With a schedule including Happy Hours at Marlins Park and an unforgettable social evening at the InterContinental Miami, Soccerex USA allowed delegates to unwind and build on the new friendships and business relationships that had been forged during the day.

Soccerex is legendary. It is a collection of incredible minds and people from the industry
