Soccerex Global Convention 2016: Wrap-up

5 October 2016 |
With the dust settling following the Soccerex Global Convention 2016 in Manchester, the football industry can reflect on what was a truly fantastic three days.

Featuring insight from the likes of FIFA’s General Secretary, Fatma Samoura; Soccer United Marketing, the Premier League, UFC and LaLiga, alongside an exhibition full of the world’s foremost buyers and suppliers, this year’s Convention added its own touch of stardust that helped create the special atmosphere so strongly associated with Soccerex over the past twenty years.

Clarence Seedorf, Graeme Le Saux, Gilberto Silva and Thomas Hitzlsperger, were just some the former players adding a bit of glamour to a conference agenda that also featured two of the summer’s most prominent Team GB Olympians: K1 Slalom Canoeist, Joe Clarke and Taekwondo athlete, Lutalo Muhammad. 

This year’s event had all the makings of what Soccerex has come to embody in its two decades at the forefront of the global football industry; senior figures doing business, friendships being established and football lovers coming together to share their stories and insight. We can’t wait for next year, and look forward to seeing you all again in 2017!
